GEORGE, South Africa (AP) — Branden Grace of South Africa fell into a tie for the lead at the Volvo Golf Champions with Nicolas Colsaerts of Belgium after shooting a 2-over 75 Saturday in a wet and windy third round.
Grace had two double bogeys on his back nine, wasting his four-stroke lead after two rounds. Colsaerts shot a 69. Grace and Colsarets head into the final round at 10-under 209.
South African pair Retief Goosen (70) and Charl Schwartzel (68) are a stroke back.
After two days of benign weather, the Links course showed a glimpse of its fearsome reputation as the wind and intermittent rain made for a difficult day.
It took its toll on Spain’s Pablo Martin. The three-time European Tour winner shot a 90 to sit last at 20 over.
