It was an amazing week for South African golfer Branden Grace. On Wednesday the 29-year-old found out that he and his wife are expecting a baby boy and on Sunday he won his home country’s Nedbank Golf Challenge. Sinking a 40-foot putt on the 16th hole to secure a one-stroke victory over Scotland’s Scott Jamieson.
Grace is the first South African to win the tournament hosted by golf golf legend Gary Player since 2007 and his latest win moves him into the Top-10 in the Race to Dubai Standings.

“This is a dream come true for me,” said the Calloway player afterwards. “This is the one event that as a South African you want to win. It’s Africa’s major for a reason and a special place it is.” Adding, “There’s a lot of history and a lot of great winners on the trophy. I’m very glad to be able to put my name on the trophy as well.”

Over on the PGA Tour 31-year-old Patton Kizzire secured his first win at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba in Mexico.
