Meronk keeps a slender lead in Dunhill

Poland’s Adrian Meronk will go into the final round of the European Tour’s Alfred Dunhill Championship with a slender one-shot lead at Leopard Creek Country Club.

Meronk, whose only win on tour came at the Open de Portugal last year, overcame a difficult start to card a 71 on Saturday.

He bogeyed the third and fourth holes, but three birdies on the back nine took him to 14-under par and the outright lead heading into Sunday.

But the 27-year-old is only one shot ahead of South African teenager Jayden Schaper, who carded an eagle and two birdies in his final four holes to shoot into contention with a 67.

The 19-year-old is seeking his maiden tour success in his rookie year as a professional.

A further two shots back on his own in third is another home player Christiaan Bezuidenhout (68).

Dane Joachim Hansen (73), who won his first tour title last weekend at the Joburg Open, briefly led again in the third round before an eight on the par-four 11th saw him finish his round on nine-under par.
