EAST LONDON, South Africa —

South Africans Darren Fichardt and Jaco Van Zyl share the lead going into the final round of the Africa Open, two shots clear of their nearest pursuers at East London Golf Club.

Fichardt had a 65 on Saturday, setting up a great day by firing four birdies and an eagle on the first eight holes, but his second bogey on the 17th dropped him back to 15-under 129 and into a tie with Van Zyl, who had a 68.

Both men are vying to become the fourth successive South African to win the event sanctioned by the European and South Africans tours.

Second-round leader Adilson Da Silva had a triple bogey on No. 8 and finished with a 73 to fall two shots off the lead, while France's Gregory Bourdy was another stroke back in fourth after a 67.
