Garcia leads by 2 in South Africa
Sergio Garcia leads by two strokes going into the final round of the Nedbank Golf Challenge in South Africa and is on course for a wire-towire win at the penultimate event of the European Tour season.
Garcia improved his 1-shot overnight lead over Louis Oosthuizen, although the gap would have been bigger if not for a two-shot swing Oosthuizen’s way on the final hole of the third round at Gary Player Country Club on Saturday.
PGA Tour Champions: Scott McCarron moved into position to win the PGA Tour Champions’ season points race, birdieing the final two holes for a one-stroke lead in the Charles Schwab Cup Championship in Phoenix.
McCarron shot a 5under 66 on another warm and sunny day at Phoenix Country Club. One of six players fighting for the Charles Schwab Cup and a $1 million annuity, McCarron had an 18-under 195 total. LPGA: Gaby Lopez won her first LPGA Tour event with a 1-over 73 to finish one shot ahead of Ariya Jutanugarn in the Blue Bay tournament in China.
Lopez had bogeys on the last two holes at the Jian Lake Blue Bay Golf Club and almost let the title slip away. She finished at 8-under 280.
