Garcia’s lead in Sun City cut to 1 by Oosthuizen

The Sacramento Bee - - Sports - — WIRE SER­VICES

Ser­gio Garcia barely held onto his lead as Louis Oosthuizen’s sec­on­dround charge took him to within a shot of the Spaniard at the Ned­bank Golf Chal­lenge on Fri­day.

Garcia’s 1-un­der 71 in Sun City, South Africa, moved him to 9-un­der 135 over­all, but his four-shot ad­van­tage from the first day dis­ap­peared as Oosthuizen (67) made an ea­gle and five birdies at Gary Player Coun­try Club. While Garcia bo­geyed three of his last six holes, Oosthuizen came home in 32.

Oosthuizen has never won his coun­try’s most pres­ti­gious tour­na­ment.

Mikko Korho­nen (70) was third at 6 un­der, two be­hind Oosthuizen and three off the lead.
