He con­ceded the 54-hole lead to Mitchell (Kloof), but went six-un­der through the first 10 holes of the fi­nal round to set up vic­tory. Mitchell had 18 birdies and an ea­gle. No­table: Siyanda Mwandla (Mount Edge­combe) had six con­sec­u­tive birdies (holes 1-6) in a first round 67 and fin­ished sixth. Ja­son Broom­head (Dur­ban CC) had backto-back ea­gles in the third round, a 3 at 10, and ace at 11.
