Local man Darren Fichardt secured his fifth European Tour success after shooting a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in Sunday's closing third round at Royal Johannesburg and Kensington Golf Club's East Course to finish at 15-under 200 and edge out British duo Paul Waring and Stuart Manley by a shot
As well as ending his four-year drought at this level, Fichardt also punches his ticket for this summer's Open Championship at Royal Birkdale (three spots were on offer here). With bad weather reducing the tournament to 54 holes, the South African started Sunday tied for the lead with Waring at 11-under. The duo were still locked together playing the last but Waring's birdie putt on the par-5 18th lipped out, allowing Fichardt to tap in from close range after he'd chipped up from just off the green. That completed a full set of red numbers on the long holes after he'd made his move on the front nine with birdie-4s on 1, 6 and 7. A circle on 12 built his lead to two but a bogey at 17 and birdies elsewhere meant he needed one more par breaker at 18 to get it done. He found it. Fichardt now gets the chance to peg it up in an Open Championship for the first time since 2010. He's never made the cut in his previous five. Feb 26 - 9:40 AM
