Shubhankar Sharma shines again to keep control in Mexico

And then he made a few putts and then he came back to me and said, "Have a good day".

European - George Coetzee opened a two-shot lead heading into the final round of the Tshwane Open after a 3-under 68 in Pretoria, South Africa.

Sharma survived some anxious moments to maintain his two-shot lead ahead of some of the biggest names such as Sergio Garcia, Dustin Johnson, and Jordan Spieth, apart from Mickelson.

Oh, and he can putt - as evidenced by his 14-footer for par at the 18th hole on Saturday to secure the most unlikely of 54-hole advantages (as an aside, he also has a vintage fist pump).

Defending champion and world number one Dustin Johnson is three shots off the pace on 10 under par alongside Pat Perez, Xander Schauffele and Brian Harman, with world number two Justin Thomas another stroke adrift.

Garcia also kept the pressure on, offsetting two bogeys with four birdies for a 69 that left him tied for second place at 11 under.

"It's been a long time since my game's been back to this point", Mickelson said. A victory in this World Golf Championship would be his third in his last eight starts and likely put him in the top 25. Justin Thomas got it past year when he made an ace in the inaugural Mexico Championship, and Ross Fisher got it on Saturday.

"I think whether it happens tomorrow or not - very good chance it will - but if it doesn't, it's going to happen soon because I'm playing too well for it not to". He doesn't hit the golf ball miles, he's not an imposing figure, standing just 5-feet-9, but through 54 holes he's stood tall against the game's titans - posting rounds of 65-66-69 for a 13-under total.

The 37-year-old Englishman started the day on three under and parred his opening two holes at the Chapultepec Golf Club.

Even more surreal? He's beating them. It was his only non-par on the front nine, where he shot 33.

Justin Thomas also has new life after setting the course record with a 62, breaking by one the mark Jordan Spieth set previous year. An eagle on Friday at the short par-four first hole, where he drove the ball to inside two feet for a tapin, changed that and bogeys at the next two holes proved minor setbacks.

Sharma had never seen such large crowds following him, and it's still hard to digest seeing so many players he only knew from the middle of the night in Chandigarh, when he would stay up to watch the majors. "I just need to carry on doing what I am doing". Sunday is a final exam of another variety.
