Branden Grace beat Luke Donald and Russell Knox...

Scott Jamieson fired a brilliant bogey-free 67 to take a one-shot lead into the final round of the Nedbank Golf Challenge. Dubuisson then bogeyed the next, leaving the other two to effectively fight it out over the closing three holes.

"This is the one event as a South African you want to win".

Highlights from the final round of the Nedbank Golf Challenge in South Africa.

"I think this was probably the loudest applause I've ever received coming up the 18th hole", said the 29-year-old Grace, who grew up a couple hours' drive away in Pretoria.

"I needed really top eight or something to do that". He also finished with a 70.

Hao Tong Li thrashed yet another stellar final round to finish T4 on 7-under 281 in the Nedbank Golf Challenge at the Gary Player Country Club in Sun City, four back of the victor Branden Grace.

And England's Tommy Fleetwood kept alive his goal of securing the Race to Dubai No 1 title by recording an eagle and five birdies in his score of 67 to move into a share of seventh spot at two-under.

The Englishman will heads to the final event of the season, the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai, with a 256,737-point lead over the in-form Justin Rose.

"The putter was just cold", said Grace in a tournament press release.

He had a tough day on Friday, too, carding 75.

Youngster Haydn Porteous (23) sits just one-over par alongside 2012 champion Martin Kaymer (Germany), and the experienced Richard Sterne is a further shot back.

Grace made six birdies in a bogey-free round of 66.

That was until No. 16.

"I had to stay patient and I had to take the chances when they came my way".

Reaching the turn one ahead, Dubuisson joined his playing partners in posting a two-putt gain at the 10th, but lost his lead when he failed to match Grace and Jamieson's birdies at the par-five 14th. Dubuisson dropped back with a bogey there.

Smith is the fourth golfer to withdraw in Johannesburg after compatriots Matthew Southgate, Anthony Wall pulled out prior to the first tee and American Peter Uihlein retired ill from the first round. His chip over the trap lipped out of the cup, almost giving him a spectacular birdie.

Grace, who carded the lowest round in major history with his 62 at the Open in July, held his nerve to sink a clinching par putt on the last to prompt joyous celebrations.
