Branden Grace produced a bogey-free 66 to move to 11 under and win the Nedbank Golf Challenge hosted by Gary Player.

Here, we take a look at what some of the chasing pack had to say about their week in Sun City.

Scott Jamieson (70, -10)

"I got off to a nice start and things were looking good. Got a little blip on number eight. Branden got off to a fast start, all three of us were going along nicely there. On 16, perhaps if my chip had gone in, it might have been a different story. I'm sure I'll look back and take great pride with that. Played with some of the best players in the world this week and proved that I can compete with them. So hopefully I can take something out of it. That was the goal coming here: to try and get into Dubai. I needed really top eight or something to do that. Second's pretty good."

Li Haotong (64, -7)

"It's incredible. Since the Open, it's been a while where I didn't play well. Right now, pretty good tournament for me. My game was really, really good today. Just sometimes you need some luck and also - I saved par on 16 - that was a big par. I missed on the last by six feet but, whatever. It's really, really good for myself today. After six holes, I started to look at the leaderboard. At that time I just saw that I can finish top ten, really good. I can't believe the last four holes I got a chance at least. Unfortunately I missed a couple of putts, especially 15 and 18 inside ten feet. I didn't play well for two months already, so this gave me a lot of confidence and good things are coming."

Martin Kaymer (71, -6)

"The first nine, I didn't really use. The first five, six holes, I lost two shots on two and five. That really killed the momentum of trying to win the golf tournament. Then it was more about trying to finish maybe in the top five, top three. Then all of a sudden I had four birdies in a row and I thought, 'maybe, if you give yourself chances coming in, maybe there's a chance to play for the win here'. But it wasn't meant to be. I made a couple of mistakes coming in. I scored very well the last four days which was nice. Now it's just about resting for the next two, three days and then obviously it's a very, very big week for us in terms of Ryder Cup points for next year. I know exactly what I need to do in the winter-time, what I need to work on."
