Oosthuizen forges ahead
LOUIS OOSTHUIZEN takes a three-shot lead into the final round of the South African Open after firing a battling 67 on day three in Johannesburg.
The 2010 Open champion entered the weekend two shots behind fellow South African
Charl Schwartzel but the 2011 Masters winner will now have to do the chasing after a disappointing 72.
Oosthuizen moved to 14 under par at Randpark Golf Club, with England’s Matt Wallace and Zambian world number 1,330 Madalitso Muthiya at 11 under alongside Schwartzel. Oosthuizen (left) holed a long putt for birdie on the first, reached the turn in 33 and had a four-shot lead after 15 holes.
But a bogey after finding sand off the tee at the par-three 17th removed some of the gloss.
