HOME FAVOURITE BRANDEN Grace produced a sizzling final-round 66 for a one-stroke victory in the Nedbank Challenge at Sun City on Sunday.

The 29-year-old South African delighted a huge last day crowd with a bogey-free display to capture an eighth European Tour title after finishing 11-under par overall.

It was also Grace’s fourth Tour win on home soil.

Grace went into the round trailing three shots off the lead before making it a three-way tie at the top with a birdie at the 14th and then breaking clear by sinking a 40-footer for birdie at 16.

Scotland’s Scott Jamieson (70) was second at 10-under par with Frenchman Victor Dubuisson (70) third on nine-under.

England’s Tommy Fleetwood’s final-day 71 for a share of 10th place ensured the Race to Dubai title will be decided at the season-ending DP World Tour Championship, which starts on Thursday in Dubai.

Both Shane Lowry (two-under) and Paul Dunne (one-over) finished inside the top 30, with the latter producing a final round 66 to surge up the leaderboard. Both have earned a place at next week’s season finale in Dubai.

Padraig Harrington, meanwhile, carded a fourth round 75 and finished four-over for the week.
