Charl Schwartzel, an 11-shot winner in Thailand last weekend, takes a 10-stroke lead into the final round of the Alfred Dunhill Championship in his native South Africa tomorrow.

But if the week is belonging to the 28-year-old from Johannesburg then the 192-yard 12th at Leopard Creek is compatriot Keith Horne's property – incredibly, he holed-in-one for the second day running.

'I just want to keep playing with no expectations. Tee it up, hit the ball down the fairway, hit it on the green, make the putt and see where it leads me.

'In the back of your mind you know what you want to achieve. We all want to win golf tournaments, but I can't be thinking about wanting to win because that's not how I'm actually going to win.

'I have to just stay right where I am and plod along. If I play the best I'll win – that's the way I see it.'

They say a leopard never changes its spots. But it seems Southampton can change their stripes.

The Premier League new boys released their new kit to what can best be described as a mixed response.

While the club website claimed sales of the red and pinstripe home kit was on course to break records, supporters have taken to forums to complain vociferously at the change in style.

Last season's thick – and it must be said traditional – white stripes have all but disappeared.

'Fans queued for hours to be among the first to snap up the new strip when it went on sale at the Saints Store in the city's WestQuay shopping centre on Sunday morning,' reads the club's official website.

'The striking new design has gone down well with the Saints faithful, many of whom have certainly wasted no time in ensuring they are kitted out for life in the Barclays Premier League.'
