Amazing Branden Grace wins the Alfred Dunhill Championship from wire to wire at Leopard Creek Country Club in South Africa.
Branden won the Alfred Dunhill Championship with a final round -4 under par 68 for -20 under par total, and an amazing seven shot victory over the field. With this win Branden also becomes the first player to win the Alfred Dunhill Championship and the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, he said it had been a special week;
“It’s been a phenomenal week.”
“It’s special to win it wire-to-wire, more so because it’s in front of a local crowd. It was a pretty flawless round today and the perfect way to finish off an incredible tournament, a great week in the office.”
“I’d like to start by thanking Mrs Rupert and Mr Rupert, this establishment here is just something spectacular. It’s been a long year, a hard, year but now it’s a fairy tale ending just before Christmas.”
“One of the main things this week has been the driving; I just put a new driver in the bag in Dubai and that’s been the key this week.”
“I was satisfied to finish the tournament off the way I did today, every time I’ve won is when I’m playing well.”
“I haven’t won when I’m not on top of my game. I was really good off the tee this week and even on the 18th I stuck to my routine.”
Louis Oosthuizen finished in second place, at -13 under par, with a last round -3 under par 69. Having a good finish was last year’s Challenge Tour number one Andrew Johnston, in third position on -11 under par. Last weeks Nedbank Challenge winner Danny Willett, and Trevor Fisher Junior tied for fourth, a long way back.
