Dogged Justin Rose shares lead in Sun City

By: samjack


Justin Rose and Trevor Immelman each shot five-under 67s yesterday, to share the lead by five strokes after the third round of the Nedbank Challenge.
Each had seven birdies and two bogeys to total 16-under 200 at the Gary Player Country Club in Sun City. Three-time champion Ernie Els (69) was next at 205, four strokes ahead of Henrik Stenson (72).
Immelman and Rose will play together for the second straight day today. Immelman said: “We can’t let it become a match-play situation because it’s a tough golf course, and there are some good players behind us that we have to keep our eyes on.”
Rose indicated that the sportsmanship between the two leaders would remain for the final round. “We’ll play hard and respect each other‘s good shots, just like we did today,” the Englishman said.
Rose’s bogeys were his first of the tournament, but he kept the pressure on his South African rival with five birdies on the back nine.
Immelman pushed his drive on the 18th to the right, and his lay-up landed in a greenside bunker, while Rose’s second shot was just 12 feet short of the pin. Immelman’s bunker shot left him only three feet from the hole to get away with just one dropped shot, while Rose missed his birdie attempt.
“Both times when I felt I was faltering today, I managed to get three birdies in a row and get myself back in the tournament,” said Rose, who had birdies on the sixth, ninth, 10th, 11th, 14th, 15th and 16th holes.
Immelman was disappointed to start and finish his round with bogeys. “There was a lot of good stuff in between, and I have just got to grind out each hole,” he said.
Els had six birdies and three bogeys, but achieved his desire expressed after the second round of scoring birdies on all four of the par-5s.
Rory Sabbatini (67) equalled the day’s best round to move into seventh place at 5-under 211.
