Padraig Harraingon is 10-over par after Day Three of the Nedband Challenge in South Africa.

The Dubliner had started the day on 7-over and for the third consecutive round of action, he dropped three shots or more.

This time it was three as a result of a 75.

While he did not manage a birdie or bogey on the back-nine, the front-nine saw the multiple major winner two bogeys and two birdies.

However, what truly cost him was the second hole where he scored eight on a Par 5.

Leader Jeunghun Wang is 11 under par and three shots clear. 

Meanwhile, England's Danny Willett has made up some ground on rival Henrik Stenson. 

The two contenders to finish top of the European Tour money list are now separated by four shots, with the Swede on 4-under.

Stenson can win the Race to Dubai if he claims a tournament victory but he is 7 shots off the lead ahead of tomorrow's final round.
