JOHANNESBURG - Louis Oosthuizen is South Africa's best hope of claiming another major victory for the country as he finished round of 3 of the PGA Championship in Louisville, Kentucky four shots off the pace.

World number one, Rory McIlroy, will be the man to catch on the final day as he shot his second consecutive round of 67 to end 13 under on Saturday.

Bernd Wiesberger shot one of the rounds of the day on Saturday as he made six birdies during his round of 65 to end the day in second place, one behind McIlroy.

Rickie Fowler will resume Sunday two shots behind the leader, while Phil Mickelson and Jason Day are 10 under.

Oosthuizen will carry the hopes of the nation when he tees off at 20h35, while Ernie Else will start his final round at 18h35 on -5.

The leading pair will begin their fourth round at 20h55.
