Donald two ahead of Fisher midway through front nine

Posted on January 14, 2015 by Ken

Luke Donald held a two-stroke lead over Ross Fisher midway through the front nine on the third day of the Nedbank Golf Challenge at the Gary Player Country Club at Sun City on Saturday.

The Englishman had played solidly, avoiding trouble through his first six holes, and he added one birdie to his tally when he found the middle of the green on the 195-metre par-three fourth hole and sank a lovely 20-foot putt.

Englishmen held the top three places on the third-round leaderboard, with Fisher gaining a stroke and moving to nine-under-par, while Danny Willett was in great touch, picking up three birdies in seven holes to move to eight-under-par.

Alexander Levy, playing in the final three-ball with Donald and Fisher, also birdied the par-three fourth, but found himself in trouble on the third and sixth holes, the Frenchman dropping shots on each to slip back to fourth place on five-under-par.

Three golfers were in a tie for fifth on four-under: South African hope Charl Schwartzel, an inspired Thongchai Jaidee and Germany’s Marcel Siem.

  • Thought of the Day

    1 Corinthians 3:3 - "For while there is jealousy and strife among you, are you not of the flesh and behaving only in a human way?"

    One of my favourite U2 songs is a collaboration with Johnny Cash called The Wanderer, and it features the line "they say they want the kingdom, but they don't want God in it".
    Many people say they believe in God, but they don't experience his loving presence. They may be active in Christian work, but only if they have their way. If they cannot be leaders, they refuse to be involved.
    Because they refuse to allow God to fill their lives with his love, they remain weak and powerless.
    Spiritual maturity means developing a greater love for others.

    "When the love of Christ saturates you, immature attitudes such as pettiness, jealousy and strife are dissolved.
    "It is only when you have an intimate relationship with the Lord that you receive sufficient grace to rise above this immaturity and enjoy the solid food that the Holy Spirit gives you." - Solly Ozrovech, A Shelter From The Storm
