Golf: Scott Jamieson tees off on his way to a third round 67.

South Africans Charl Schwartzel and Louis Oosthuizen - who are both major champions - are also on two under, as is France's Matthieu Pavon.

"There is still an bad long way to go but if I can do what I did today then I will be in with a good shout". "It's awesome. This is really the one I wanted to win". Jamieson settled for second a shot off the pace, while Dubuisson finished third on nine under.

Dubuisson coped better than most, adding a two-under-par 70 to his opening 68 for a six-under-par total that left him two strokes clear of nearest challengers Lee Westwood and Darren Fichardt.

There were repercussions for the European Tour's Race to Dubai title following the penultimate tournament of the season.

They include Italian Francesco Molinari, who catapuled himself into contention with a best-of-the-week 65 to sit five off the pace along with South African Haydn Porteous (67), while a big group on two-under includes former Masters champion Schwartzel (72), 2010 Open victor Louis Oosthuizen (70), former world No.1 Lee Westwood (74), Race to Dubai leader Tommy Fleetwood (67) and David Drysdale (69).

Fleetwood would wrap up the Race to Dubai title with victory at Sun City, but the Englishman will also be focused on finishing strongly and extending his standings lead over Justin Rose ahead of the season-ending Tour Championship next weekend.

"This is awesome", Grace said.

He had a tough day on Friday, too, carding 75. "That's why I didn't make as many birdies as the day before".

That was until No. 16. He finished third here previous year, and enjoys the challenge of the Gary Player Country Club course.

"I missed some good opportunities, but the problem is I felt like all day I had tricky, downhill putts, and I couldn't really go for it because I didn't want to". Dubuisson dropped back with a bogey there. His chip over the trap lipped out of the cup, almost giving him a spectacular birdie. He said he and his pregnant wife found out on Wednesday that they were expecting a boy.
