MALELANE, South Africa (AP) Scott Jamieson will take a one-shot lead into the final round of the Alfred Dunhill Championship after a 68 on Saturday moved him to 11 under overall and ahead of overnight leader David Lipsky.

Jamieson's only European Tour win also came in South Africa, at the Nelson Mandela Championship six years ago, and he has had a string of top-10 finishes in the country.

Jamieson made five birdies and an eagle in his third round at Leopard Creek Country Club. His eagle came when he put his tee shot on the par-4 11th to within tap-in range. The Scot did make a double-bogey six on the 14th but recovered from that with two consecutive birdies.
