Max Homa holds a one-shot lead going into the final round of the DP World Tour’s Nedbank Golf Challenge in Sun City. Homa, who is making his debut in South Africa, has performed exceptionally well on the challenging course, dropping only one shot in 54 holes and finishing the third round at 13 under-par. He is currently in the best position to win the tournament, which is known as “Africa’s major.”
After sharing the top spot on the leaderboard overnight, Homa now leads Matthieu Pavon of France by a single stroke. Nicolai Hojgaard and Thorbjorn Olesen from Denmark are two shots behind Homa, having both shot a 69. They are still in contention for the title. Meanwhile, England’s Dan Bradbury is one shot further back after carding a 71.
Pavon had a strong start with five birdies and a bogey in his first 14 holes. However, consecutive dropped shots on the 15th and 16th allowed Homa to surpass him on the leaderboard. Homa’s only dropped shot in three days came on the fourth hole, demonstrating his consistency in hitting fairways and his solid putting skills.
Homa managed to offset his earlier mistake with an eagle on the par five 10th hole. As a six-time winner on the PGA Tour, he is aiming for his first victory on the European circuit, which includes several events in Africa.
Tommy Fleetwood of England, who has won the last two Nedbank Golf Challenge tournaments, had a less successful day, carding a 71 and currently sits at seven under-par, six shots behind Homa.
In conclusion, Max Homa is in a favorable position to win the Nedbank Golf Challenge, leading by one shot going into the final round. His impressive performance on the challenging course and consistent play have put him ahead of his competitors.
