MALELAN, South Africa — Okie Strydom shot a 63 to equal the course record set by Scott Jamieson a day earlier and join the Scot in a share of the lead after three rounds of the Alfred Dunhill Championship on Saturday.
Home player Strydom made a late bogey on No. 16 to set a new course record at Leopard Creek, but the round still had eight birdies and an eagle to take him to 15 overall and level with Jamison.
Jamieson got off to a slow start, mixing two birdies with three bogeys on the front nine. He came back with three straight birdies coming home to stay in contention for a 2-under 70.
Strydom and Jamieson are two shots clear of South African pair Oliver Baker and Dean Burmester and England’s Dale Whitnell.
