Max Homa will have the chance to do something he’s never done before on Sunday.
The 32-year old American could win his first event in the DP World Tour as he currently holds the lead after 54 holes at the 2023 Nedbank Golf Challenge held at Gary Player Country Club, Sun City, South Africa. Homa has a one-shot advantage heading into the final round of Sunday after shooting a 3-under-par 69 on Saturday.
Homa started his back nine with a par-5 10th eagle. He then added a birdie at the par-5 fourteenth to finish with a score of 33.
Homa, ranked eighth in the World, has won six times on the PGA Tour. However, he has not yet won on the DP World Tour. It could change on Sunday, but he’s up against a strong pack of experienced competitors.
Matthieu Pavon is now second after his 2-under performance. He was tied with Homa at 36 holes. Nicolai Hjgaard, Thorbjorn Olesen and Nicolai Jgaard are tied for third place at 11 under.
Justin Thomas, a golfer who recently went on safari with Homa, is T-10, at 6 under. He shot even par in the third round.
