Alex won the Nedbank Golf Challenge by six shots, firing a final round -9 under par 63 to win with a -14 under par total;

“I’ve tried to get in this tournament for so many years, and when I got in here, ending up winning, it feels unbelievable.”

“I think me and my caddie worked on a lot to try to go for the right places on the green, because there’s so many tricky pins here. They tuck those pins away up in the corners of the greens, and it’s easy to make bogeys.”

“All I was trying to do was hit the right shots at the right pieces of the green and putt uphill, and then not make too many bogeys. Because around here, I think you’ve got a few birdie chances.”

“The front pins are easier and I think you’ve got a lot of opportunities, and if you just manage those little tricky ones, not making too many bogeys, you’ve got a chance around here.”

Jeunghun Wang was second, at -8 under par, a sad last round of +3 over par 75.

Tied in third place at -7 under par were,  Ricardo GouveiaAlejandro Cañizares, Victor Dubuisson, home favourite Branden Grace and Andy Sullivan.
