Scott Jamieson will take a one-shot lead into the final round of the Nedbank Golf Challenge hosted by Gary Player after a 67 moved him to eight under on day three.

Here, we take a look at what some of the chasing pack had to say heading into Sunday.

Victor Dubuisson (71, -7)

"I played as good as the first two rounds but my putting was maybe not as good. I missed some good opportunities but the problem is I felt like all day I had tricky, downhill putts and I couldn't really go for it because it's a really tough course. I never wanted to give myself three-and-a-half, four feet second putts so I putted very easy. That's why I didn't make as many birdies as the day before. Of course I think about winning but it's a long road tomorrow. With 18 holes to go everything can happen here. So I hope I will just focus on doing my best and just don't make mistakes."

Branden Grace (68, -5)

"I hit it great again today. From the back nine yesterday leading into today I was quite on song. A couple of bad shots but those things happen. It's still tough out there. The wind is not a big factor today but it's swirling a little bit so it's really hard to commit and trust yourself and what you're doing. Hopefully I can get a couple of good birdies tomorrow and be in with a shot. This is one of those events you grow up watching as a South African and this is probably the event as a South African you want to win. It's "Africa's Major" for a reason and it's one of those you're going to have to play well to win and hopefully I can do that tomorrow."

Martin Kaymer (69, -5)

"I made a great chip-in on eight, that helped a lot to get the round going. So I think it's more that I had very little mistakes. I actually worked a little bit on the short game with Gary Player. He's always very supportive of my game and always tries to help me. I'm very excited to tell him tomorrow that I actually had a chip-in. It was a tough one, so I think he will be very pleased. When I won here, I wasn't in the lead after three rounds, fairly similar to this year. I've got great support here. I've had good success in the past and I look forward to that excitement. Hopefully I can get it going early tomorrow and I have a chance."

Haydn Porteous (67, -3)

"I've been playing some decent golf for the last couple of weeks, just not managing to get it around 18 holes without a number and, today, I really managed my way around that golf course and tried to keep the big numbers off the card. I managed to do that and along with some birdies along the way, always helps the scorecard. I feel like my game is coming along nicely. I feel I have one round to go around unscathed and let's just hope for the best. I'm hitting the ball good enough to make birdies out there. Missed a couple out there today but also holed a few. If I just carry on with the same process as I have been doing over the last few days, I'm going to take it one shot at a time. One round to go and expect nothing, take everything."
