Keith Horne won the Telkom PGA Championship in style with a birdie at the final hole.
With a final round of 69 at Country Club Johannesburg, Horne won South Africa’s second oldest professional tournament by three strokes on 19 under par.
The 40 year old European Tour Member, who has travelled most of Africa, Asia and Europe in search of titles, has waited a long time for the fifth victory of his career.
“It has been a long time coming,” he said. “I’m over the moon that I can tick this off. I would’ve been disappointed to have played in South Africa for so long and never won a big tournament - and this is a big one.
“It’s been going for many years with so many big names on the trophy. I really feel like I’m a big player in South Africa now.”
