South African Open: England's Chris Paisley leads going into final round

From BBC - January 13, 2018

Chris Paisley moved a step closer to claiming his first European Tour title by taking a one-shot lead into day four of the South African Open.

England's Paisley, 31, shot a third-round 70 at Glendower Golf Club to move to 15 under, with home favourite Branden Grace a stroke back after a 66.

"I am really proud with how I have played, I felt really calm and never really felt stressed," said Paisley.

Adrien Saddier, halfway co-leader with Paisley, fell three shots off the pace.

Paisley, from Hexham, shot a round containing three birdies and a bogey at the 16th to take a comfortable lead, but 29-year-old South African Grace birdied five of his last eight holes to come back into contention.
