Bezuidenhout takes 5-shot lead into final round in Spain

SOTOGRANDE, Spain (AP) — Christiaan Bezuidenhout of South Africa shot a 2-under 69 on Saturday to increase his lead to five strokes in the Andalucia Valderrama Masters. "Going into Sunday with a five-shot lead is definitely nice," Bezuidenhout said. "I'll just keep playing my game and see how I finish up tomorrow."

Jon Rahm of Spain and Hideto Tanihara of Japan were tied for second. Rahm had a 67, and Tanihara shot 68. "Rahm is a great player," Bezuidenhout said. "He's a legend in Spain so it will be quite an experience tomorrow. I haven't played with him yet so I'm looking forward to the challenge."

Tournament host Sergio Garcia was eight shots off the lead after a 73.
