Jason Froneman, Jason Viljoen and reigning Nomads SA Boys U-19 Stroke Play champion Tristen Strydom vaulted into a three-way share of the lead in the third round of the Harry Oppenheimer Trophy at Maccauvlei Golf Club on Thursday.

Froneman fired a two under 70 and fellow Ekurhuleni Strydom carded a 71, while Central Gauteng’s Viljoen surged into contention at eight-under-par 208 after he sealed a six-under-par 66 with an eagle-three at the 18th.

The trio will carry a one shot lead into today’s final round over Ekurhuleni’s Paul Boshoff and Ryan Dreyer from Central Gauteng.

Boshoff, the reigning Nomads SA Boys U-19 Match Play champion, signed for a third round 70, while former Sanlam SA Amateur champion Dreyer blitzed the course in 67 strokes to tie for fourth on 209.

Overnight leader Stefan Cronje from Ekurhuleni stumbled with a 75 and slipped to joint sixth with defending champion Armandt Scholtz from Boland, who navigated the layout in 68 strokes.

Gauteng North’s Hendrikus Stoop finished three off the pace with a 73.

The final round is currently in progress.
