Charl Schwartzel shot a 3-under 69 Saturday to take a one-shot lead after the third round of the South African Open, the season-opening event on the European Tour.

Schwartzel moved to 15-under 201, with Morten Orum Madsen (69) and Marco Crespi (70) tied for second at Glendower Golf Club.

South Africa's Hennie Otto surged into fourth with a 65, another stroke behind.

Schwartzel has just one European Tour title since winning the Masters in 2011 and has never won his home open. He mixed five birdies with two bogeys to put himself in good position to claim the first title on the 2014 Race to Dubai.
