Anders Hansen claimed his third European tour title on Sunday with a birdie at the last hole of the Joburg Open. He shot a 5-under-par 66good enough for a victory by one stroke over Andrew McLardy.

Retief Goosen, one of the pre-tournament favorites, had an eventful round, starting with two bogeys before picking up three birdies and then starting the back nine with five bogeys in six holes. He ended his round in spectacular fashion by sinking a three-iron for a double-eagle 2 two on the 18th. He had a smile on his face but he finished far down the leaderboard, at 7-under in a tie for 23rd.
