Leishman leads Stenson by 1 after 3rd round at Sun City

SUN CITY, South Africa -- Marc Leishman birdied the last two holes to card a 6-under 66 and move into the lead on the third day of the Nedbank Challenge.

The Australian started the day at 8-under par, trailing leader Henrik Stenson by three shots, but a strong back nine saw him close the day on 14 under to lead the Swede by one stroke.

Stenson's birdies at the 14th and 15th put some daylight between himself and the chasing pack, but two bogeys in the last three holes set him back as he signed for a 70.

South African Jaco van Zyl ended the day in third on 10 under, while American Robert Streb was a shot behind in fourth place.
