Zander Lombard moved into a share of the lead as the leaderboard closed up on day three of the Tshwane Open.

The 21 year old began his third round six shots off the overnight lead after posting scores of 72 and 67 on Thursday and Friday respectively.

Lombard surged into contention when he covered the front nine in 30 after following pars at the opening five holes with three straight birdies from the sixth before chipping in for an eagle from the edge of the green at the ninth.

And the South African made further gains at the tenth and 12th holes to join countrymen Charl Schwartzel and Anthony Michael at the top of the pile on eight under par.

Overnight leader Michael mixed two birdies with a bogey on his front nine, while Schwartzel, who started the day two shots off the lead, birdied the second before holing his eagle putt at the ninth to join Michael and Lombard at the top of the leaderboard.
