Round 3 of the Alfred Dunill Championship produced 23 sub-par rounds and a field average score of 72.87. Charl Schwartzel leads on -13 with Finch and Riu following behind. We analyse their performances and round up the Genworth Statistics leaders.

Charl SCHWARTZEL -13

Charl Schwartzel converted five birdies during a clinical bogey free third round of 67, to lead by two shots as we move into Sunday. Looking at his Genworth Statistics, the 29 year old South African ranks very strong across the board, including 6th for Driving Distance, 5th for Greens in Regulation and 4th for Putts per Round. The Leopard Creek course specialist has moved through days two and three without dropping a single shot and is in the perfect position to defend his title and win a third Alfred Dunhill Championship.

Richard FINCH -11

Richard Finch also converted five birdies during a bogey free third round 67, to climb up into second position behind Schwartzel with 18 holes to play. Looking at his Genworth Statistics, the 36 year old English golfer is producing some excellent figures on and around the greens, ranking 1st for Scrambles and 1st for Putts per Round - all leading to the most birdies over the first three days (17 in total). Tomorrow will be a big day for the two-time European Tour winner who unfortunately lost his full playing rights at the end of last season.

Victor RIU -10

Victor Riu converted six birdies against a single bogey to make it a trio of 67’s for the leading players in round three. Looking at his Genworth Statistics, the 28 year old French golfer ranks 1st for Driving Accuracy (with 33/42 fairways) and 5th for Greens in Regulation (with 43/54 greens), plus he leads the Par 4 Scoring with a 3.77 average. A big finish here will help the 2013 Challenge Tour graduate (who is yet to achieve a top three finish on the European Tour) to get his 2014 season off to a flying start.
