Brandon Grace finishes joint third at PGA

George Coetzee fired an eight- under 64 Sunday to win the Telkom PGA Championship by two strokes.

He finished at 27-under-par 261 and won for the fourth time on the Sunshine Tour.

Neil Schietekat posted a six-under 66 to take second at minus-25.

Branden Grace, the third-round leader, managed a three-under 69 to slide into a share of third place at 23-under-par 265. He was joined there by Garth Mulroy, who closed with a 64.

Coetzee bogeyed the second at Country Club Johannesburg, but bounced back with his fourth birdie in four days at the par-five third. He made it two in a row with a birdie on the fourth.

He parred the fifth, then birdied the sixth to get to 21-under. Coetzee dropped in back-to-back birdies from the eighth. He posted birdies on the 12th and 14th, and when Grace bogeyed the 15th, Coetzee was alone in the lead.

Coetzee birdied the final two holes to seal the win. For the week, he birdied the final three holes nine of the 12 times he played them.
