BRANDEN GRACE WINS AT HOME DURING NEDBANK GOLF CHALLENGE

Branden Grace won his eighth European Tour title on Sunday 12 November at the Nedbank Golf Challenge, hosted by Gary Player in Sun City.

The final group composed of Grace, Victor Dubuisson and Scott Jamieson engaged in an exciting battle on the last day. The trio shared the lead with four holes to play, but an extraordinary 40-foot birdie putt on the 16th moved Branden to the winning score of eleven-under par, one shot ahead of Jamieson.

Branden hit all 18 greens in regulation and recorded a bogey-free final round, as he became South Africa’s first home winner in a decade.

The 29-year old commented: “This is awesome. This is the one event that as a South African you want to win. It’s Africa’s Major for a reason and what a special place it is. There is a lot of history and a lot of great winners on the trophy and I’m very glad to be able to put my name on the trophy as well.”

This victory moved Branden not only into a tie for fourth on the list of all-time South African European Tour winners, but also into the top-10 of the Race to Dubai just before this week’s final event, and into the top-30 of the Official World Golf Ranking.

Fellow Audemars Piguet Golf Dream Team member Lee Westwood finished tied sixth at five-under par.

These results show once again the strength of Audemars Piguet’s golf ambassadors, who all embody the brand’s philosophy “To break the rules, you must first master them”: Ben An, Bud Cauley, Darren Clarke, Paul Dunne, Emiliano Grillo, Miguel Ángel Jiménez, Andrew Johnston, Romain Langasque, Renato Paratore, Ian Poulter, Xander Schauffele, Henrik Stenson, Vijay Singh, Andy Sullivan, Peter Uihlein, Bernd Wiesberger and Danny Willett.
