Jamieson hoping to handle the pressure

Scott Jamieson says he needs to enjoy the moment and remain focused after moving into the Nedbank Golf Challenge lead on day three.

Scotland's Jamieson, whose only European Tour victory came at the 2012 Nelson Mandela Championship, fired a bogey-free, five-under-par round of 67 to surge to the top of the leaderboard on -8.

The 33-year-old was much better on the greens as he made five birdies, opening up a one-shot lead from Frenchman Victor Dubuisson in second, and the Glaswegian is looking forward to Sunday's test.

"It's exciting. I'm in a good position, tomorrow will be a new challenge," Jamieson said. "Still, an awful long way to go, but if I can do what I did today, I'll be in with a good shout. It would be the biggest moment of my career, I'll be well aware of that tomorrow. I've got to see if I can step up to the challenge."

South African Branden Grace and Germany's two-time major winner Martin Kaymer are in a two-way share of third on -5, three strokes off the pace after carding rounds of 68 and 69 respectively.

Italian Francesco Molinari carding a sensational seven-under-par 65 - the best score of the day - to jump into a share of fifth on -3 alongside South African Haydn Porteous.
