There might not be big money on offer  but Michael Hoey and Paul Dunne will be hoping to finish on a high when they tackle the final round of the Alfred Dunhill Championship at Leopard Creek.

Hoey will be looking to next year and his challenge to win back his card via the Challenge Tour while Dunne will be hoping to knock off a win in the UBS Hong Kong Open in his final start of 2016.

They have little say now in the title race in South Africa, where Hoey birdied three of his last six holes for a 70 that leaves him tied 23rd and one shot better than Dunne (72) on six under par.

Scores

Brandon Stone leads by three strokes on 17 under, carding a 66 on Saturday when his approach to the island green 18th headed low and left but caught the tree above the bunker there, and dropped safe and sound just over the green, the Sunshine Tour explained.. 

He salvaged par, as he had done on a number of occasions during the round, and held on to his lead over four-time Leopard Creek champion Charl Schwartzel, a charging Keith Horne and England’s Chris Hanson.
“I got a really lucky break on the last,” he told SunshineTour.com, “but all those missed putts for the last three days just got cashed in right there."
