He said it could have been better, a couple of missed opportunities;  “It was a bit up and down but I think I did what I needed to do. You always think some things could have been better. I had a chance to separate myself from the field a little bit at 12, 13, two birdie opportunities, but the greens are starting to speed up and, like I said yesterday, there are a few bumpy spots around the holes, 69 overall is a good round. I’ve won the Dunhill and one or two others here in South Africa. The South African Open, being the second oldest golf tournament in the world and being our national open, it would be fantastic.” Tied in second place at -14 under par are Italian Marco Crespi, the joint overnight leader with Charl and the man from Denmark, Morten Ørum Madsen. Hennie Otto, the 2011 home winner, produced the round of the day, carding seven birdies from the last eight holes for a -7 under par 65, for his -13 under par total. Two shots of the lead and just one behind Marco and Morten and importantly two in front of the chasing pack.
