Rising star Wang Jeunghun takes the lead in Sun City
South Korea’s Wang Jeunghun jumped to the top of the leaderboard after three rounds at the Nedbank Golf Challenge as he produced the only bogey free round of the day in South Africa. The 21-year-old moved to 11under and will take a three shot lead into today’s final round as he bids to win a third European Tour title of the season. Wang was just 20 when he became the youngest player in European Tour history to win consecutive events earlier this season after victories in the Hassan Trophy in Morocco and the AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open. Now he will hope he can hold off a final day charge from home favourite Louis Oosthuizen who bogeyed the 17th and 18th to fall three behind Wang. The world No. 91 birdied the first, second, fourth and sixth to reach the turn in 32 before a brilliant approach to the par-five 10th set up an eagle from just three feet. He duly converted before making further birdies at the 11th and the 18th for a flawless round of 64. “I hit it really well. I was trying to save pars and make birdies and it was a fantastic round,” said Wang. Four shots behind Wang is Andy Sullivan who moved to third place thanks to a round of 68 that included six birdies and two bogeys. The Englishman moved up four places to 11th in the Race to Dubai rankings and will hope he can fight for the title on the final day in order to break into the top 10. Meanwhile, Race to Dubai leader Henrik Stenson is tied for sixth after a round of 69 saw him move to 4-under. The Swede is bidding to land the title ahead of Danny Willett, who is tied for 16th on level par.
