CBSSports.com wire reports

DURBAN, South Africa -- England's Tommy Fleetwood birdied the last hole in a third-round 69 to seize a one-shot lead in the Volvo Champions on Saturday with an overall 10-under 206.

Dutchman Joost Luiten (70) and Victor Dubuisson (69) of France were tied for second at 9-under in the elite 36-player event at the Durban Country Club.

Defending champion Louis Oosthuizen was left counting the cost of having to take an "unplayable" penalty shot that led to triple bogey at the 16th hole in a round of 71.

Oosthuizen dropped to fourth at 8 under.
