Scott Jamieson fired a brilliant bogey-free 67 to take a one-shot lead into the final round of the Nedbank Golf Challenge.

The Scotsman made five birdies in round three of the penultimate event on the Race to Dubai, to move to eight under par and lead the way from Victor Dubuisson at the Gary Player Country Club.

Jamieson's only previous European Tour win came in South Africa at the 2013 Nelson Mandela Championship.

And he will be going up against a stellar field in Sun City on Sunday, led by former Ryder Cup star Dubuisson.

Home favourite Branden Grace finished at five under par alongside two-time Major champion, and 2012 Nedbank Golf Challenge winner Martin Kaymer of Germany.

Italian Francesco Molinari signed for a 65 and the lowest round of the week to move to three under par alongside South African Haydn Porteous.

Race to Dubai Rankings leader Tommy Fleetwood fired a round of 67 and is amongst a group of seven players one shot further back, as he looks to increase his lead over fellow Englishman Justin Rose heading into next week's season finale in Dubai.

Fleetwood would be crowned Europe's Number One with a victory in Sun City.

Scott Jamieson said a win on Sunday would be the highlight of his career to date.

He said: "I was much better on the greens today than I had been the first couple days, so that was nice.

"I'm in a good position.

"Tomorrow will be a new challenge.

"There's still an awful long way to go but if I can do what I did today, I'll be in with a good shout."

Jamieson, who shot a 68 on the opening day and a 73 on Friday, said his performance on the greens was the difference.

He added: "It was much the same tee-to-green as the other two days, the putter was just a little hotter today.

"I got rid of those three putts I had earlier on in the round yesterday.

"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."
