    Young Jayden Schaper will head into the final round of the Alfred Dunhill Championship on Sunday one shot off the pace.

    The 19-year-old sh0t a five-under-par 67 for his third round on Saturday to conclude the day on 13 under and one stroke behind the leader, Adrian Meronk.

    Schaper rolled in three birdies and one eagle on the 15th hole to make a significant climb up the leaderboard.

    ‘If you’re nervous it means you’re near the top, and that’s a good thing. Growing up, I’ve always kept myself in the moment and I’ve really enjoyed the pressure. So I’m going to go out and enjoy every moment and have the best time of my life out there,’ he said.
