Final leaderboard

Alfred Dunhill Championship

The world No 61 – the highest-ranked player in the field – posted a three-under 69 in a thrilling final day at Leopard Creek to end the week on 14 under, as the chasing pack faltered along the closing stretch.

England’s Richard Bland finished in a share of second alongside overnight leader Adrian Meronk, Jayden Schaper and Sean Crocker – who triple-bogeyed his final hole – while Robert MacIntyre carded a round-of-the-day 67 to end the week in tied-sixth.

Bezuidenhout’s victory is his second worldwide title of a shortened 2020 schedule and his first on the European Tour since his success at last year’s Andalucia Masters, with the win set to lift the South African inside the top-10 in the Race to Dubai standings.
