JOHANNESBURG -- Henrik Stenson of Sweden closed in on a first European Tour win in three years Saturday, taking a three-shot lead into the final round of the South African Open despite George Coetzee shooting a course-record 63.
Stenson had six birdies and three bogeys in a 69 for a 16-under total of 200. Coetzee and Magnus Carlsson were three shots back.
Stenson is looking for his first title since the Players Championship in 2009. He'll need to hold off a fast-finishing Coetzee on Sunday.
The South African had nine birdies and an eagle to break the course record at Serengeti. He had two bogeys on the back nine.
