Round 4 of the Alfred Dunill Championship produced 28 sub-par rounds and a field average score of 72.31. Charl Schwartzel emerged as the winner on -17 with Richard Finch finishing as his closest challenger on -13. We analyse their performances and round up the final Genworth Statistics leaders.


Charl Schwartzel converted four birdies during another clinical bogey free round of 68 (his third bogey free round of the week), to emerge as the tournament winner by four shots. Looking at his Genworth Statistics, the 29 year old South African ranked very strong across the board, including 3rd for Driving Distance, 2nd for Greens in Regulation, 1st for Scrambles and 4th for Putts per Round. Most impressive of all, the now 9-time European Tour winner played the last 62 holes without dropping a single shot. With this superb victory, Charl retains his Alfred Dunhill Championship and extends his complete domination over the Leopard Creek course.

Richard FINCH -13

Richard Finch converted five birdies against one bogey and one double bogey on his way to a final round 70, to finish as the tournament runner-up. Looking at his Genworth Statistics, the 36 year old English golfer was steady with the longer clubs but his performance on and around the greens was just sublime, ranking 2nd for Scrambles and 1st for each of the putting categories - all leading to accumulating the most birdies over the week (22 in total). This second place finish will go a long way towards Richard re-securing his full European Tour playing rights after losing them at the end of last season.
