Schwartzel pulls 4 strokes clear at Joburg Open

JOHANNESBURG (AP) — Charl Schwartzel has taken a four-stroke lead at the Joburg Open, shooting a 7-under 64 in the third round.

Schwartzel played bogey-free golf for the second straight day Saturday, finishing at 18-under 195 to continue the consistent play he used to win last week's Africa Open.

Darren Clarke of Northern Ireland was next after a 67 on the Royal Johannesburg and Kensington East course.

Sunshine Tour veteran Hendrik Buhrmann shot a 69 to take sole possession of third, one shot ahead of a group of five players at 11-under 202.

The $1.87 million tournament is the richest of four Sunshine Tour events co-sanctioned by the European Tour, and is the fourth event in the 2010 Race to Dubai.
