DURBAN, South Africa, Jan. 12 (UPI) -- Scott Jamieson surged to a five-stroke lead with a 4-under 68 Saturday, grabbing control after three rounds of the Volvo Golf Champions.

The Scotsman is seeking his second European Tour title in a bit more than a month in Durban, South Africa, after also taking the Nelson Mandela Championship in December.

Jamieson's 68 Saturday enabled him to finish Round 3 at 15-under 201, good for a five-shot lead over Louis Oosthuizen, who had entered the day atop the leaderboard.

Oosthuizen's disappointing 2-over 74 left him in a three-way tie for second place with first-round leader Thongchai Jaidee (73) and Julien Quesne (67) at 10-under.

Padraig Harrington fired a 5-under 67 to charge into a tie for fifth at minus-8 with Francesco Molinari (68).

Former event champ Paul Lawrie claimed into a seventh-place tie one shot further back with Shane Lowry and Danny Willett. All three shot 70.
