Garcia leads by 2 in South Africa

The Tribune (SLO) (Sunday) - - Sports -

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.
