Willett in contention

It's been said on the pro tour that it takes a couple times in the breach before a player learns how to win.

Former JSU golfer Danny Willett is getting a good taste of it this week in South Africa. Willett, the one time No. 1 amateur in the world, is two shots back going into Sunday's final round of the Joburg Open in South Africa.

He was tied for the lead through 14 holes, then took bogeys on 15 and 16 at Royal Johannesburg and Kensington GC. He's two shots behind a three-way tie for the lead.

Willett shot an even-par 71 Saturday and is at 204 for the tournament.

He tees off at 3 a.m. our time Sunday. You can follow his quest for his first European Tour title on the Golf Channel Sunday morning.
