SA still lead in Zimbabwe
VICTORIA FALLS: After combining for a third round 216, the South African team leads Zimbabwe in the third round of this year’s All Africa Golf Team Championships by 22 strokes on a team score of 636.
For a second day running, Clayton Mansfield anchored the team at Elephant Hills Golf Club with a one-under-par 71. Garrick Higgo carded 72 and Malcolm Mitchell posted a 73.
“Now I am excited at the prospect of chasing Malcolm for the Individual Honours in the final round on Friday.”
Mitchell tops the Individual Competition leaderboard on eight-under-par 208 and he had an overnight five-shot lead over Issa Abu Al Ela from Egypt and Zimbabwean David Amm.
Higgo sits in fourth at one over and Clayton Mansfield climbed to a tie for fifth at three over. The fourth member of the team, Matt Saulez, returned a non-counting 76 to tie for 10th.
SA Golf Association vice-president Naadir Agherdien said the quartet have been superb. “All four of these boys personify the adage that hard work pays off and their discipline on and off the course is unrivalled,” he said. – Lali Stander
