Churchman got off to a very slow start at 4-over par after two holes, but bounced back to shoot 2-under the final 16 holes and post a 2-over par 74. Cotton had three birdies on the day and an eagle on the par-5 eighth hole.

Ian Snyman was 2-under par after 12 holes, but back-to-back double bogey’s set him back and he finished with a 5-over par. He finished tied for 59th. Thomas Rosenmueller shot a third-round of 3-over par 75 while Colin Pearson posted a 5-over 77.
