Result: Brandon Stone recovers from wobble to win first European Tour title

Young South African Brandon Stone recovers from a mid-round wobble to win the BMW SA Open by two shots and claim his first European Tour title.

South Africa's Brandon Stone recovered from a mid-round wobble to claim victory at the BMW SA Open and win his first European Tour title this afternoon.

The 22-year-old (-14) surrendered a five-shot lead at one point before eventually finishing two shots clear of Christiaan Bezuidenhout with a one-under-par final round of 71.

Stone made only five pars on the last day at Glendower Golf Club, with seven birdies and six bogeys making for an up-and-down day.

England's Daniel Brooks (-11) bogeyed the last hole to drop to outright third, while four more South Africans, including the top-ranked player in the field Branden Grace and two-time US Open champion Retief Goosen, were in a four-way tie for fourth on nine-under.
