Poised for a Cavalry Chargeon December 6, 2009
With fully half the field in the Nedbank Golf Challenge in with a realistic chance of claiming the title, fans can expect a day where most players will throw caution to the wind in a bid to “shoot the lights out.”
Leader Retief Goosen is likely to be a little more circumspect in his bid to join the elite group of multiple winners of this event. With a mere two-shot cushion separating Goosen from Robert Allenby and Angel Cabrera, and with Ross Fisher and defending champion Henrik Stenson just four behind, he knows he is going to have to make a fair share of birdies. Even Nick Watney, who fired a course record-equaling 63 in the third round, and Time Clark, who managed a more than respectable 68 to take him to 7-under entering the final round, must consider themselves to have a chance.
