A spell of lightning in the Malelane area forced a delay to the start of the fourth and final day of the Alfred Dunhill Championship at Leopard Creek.

With the electrical storms quickly passing by the Mpumalanga venue, play began at 0650 with a 45-minute delay to all previously published round four tee times.

Therefore, the final group of South Africa’s Charl Schwartzel, who romped into a ten-shot lead on Saturday thanks to a second consecutive eight under par 64, and France’s Gregory Bourdy are due to tee off at 1220 local time.
