Westwood cruising in Sun City

SUN CITY, South Africa – Lee Westwood took a five-shot lead at the Nedbank Golf Challenge after shooting a 1-under 71 in the third round Saturday and watching his closest challenger fade at Sun City.

Westwood mixed two bogeys with three birdies to reach a 13-under total of 203. Fellow Englishman Ross Fisher settled for a 73 and was tied for second with South Africa’s Tim Clark, who shot a 68.

 Fisher had a disastrous run of two bogeys and a double bogey in four holes from the 14th.

Spain’s Miguel Angel Jimenez was another shot back in fourth in the 12-player tournament.
