Foster edges ahead
Mark Foster gained a one-shot lead over Ignacio Garrido through six holes of the final round of the Johnnie Walker Championship.
Mark Foster picked up an eagle at the par-five second to help himself to a one-shot lead over rival Ignacio Garrido midway through the final round of the Johnnie Walker Championship.
Tied for the lead overnight, the duo resumed their battle on Sunday, and it was Foster who got his nose in front through the opening six holes.
It was Garrido who actually struck first, sinking a 22-footer for birdie on the first and following it up with another birdie on the second to move two shots clear on 13 under par.
But Foster, chasing his first win in eight years, hit a beautiful iron approach shot to within 15 feet on the long par five second and promptly rolled in the putt to draw level once again.
Foster followed with four consecutive pars, while Garrido found the bunker for a bogey at the third, and then three-putted the fifth for another dropped shot.
At that stage he was suddenly two shots behind, but another birdie at the short sixth reduced the deficit to only one shot.
South African George Coetzee moved to within three strokes of the lead through 10 holes, four under for his round, and is the closest pursuer behind the two leaders.
