Neil O'Briain after his win in the Ulster Championship

Neil O'Briain believes he can win the Dimension Data Pro-Am if he keeps playing good golf.

The Old Conna based tour player carded a one-under 72 at the Links at Fancourt in Saturday's third round to go into the final round on the Montagu Course, five shots behind leaders Tjaart van der Walt, Vaughn Groenewald and Breyten Meyer on nine-under-par.  

"I can win down here alright! Not my best today with playing it blind but I’ll have to give it a rip tomorrow," O'Briain said after seeing the Links for the first time on Saturday, making an eagle, two birdies and three bogeys in a 72.
 
"I just have to keep playing good golf and put myself into position."

O'Briain (31) has high hopes of playing well after opening with a 68 on the Montagu Course on Thursday. 

Van der Walt, Groenewald and  Meyer lead by two shots from Jaco Ahlers with Jean-Paul Strydom, Anthony Michael, Ockie Strydom, Daniel van Tonder, Justin Walters and Jacques Blaauw tied for fifth, three strokes off the pace.
