Joburg Open R4

Joachim B. Hansen claims maiden title in South Africa

November 19-22
Randpark GC, Johannesburg, South Africa
ZAR 19,500,000
Round 1, Round 2, Round 3




Joachim B. Hansen has claimed his maiden European Tour win in his 146th appearance with a bogey free round of 67 at the Joburg Open.


Hansen started the final day one shot behind leader Wilco Nienaber who made three back-to-back birdies on the front nine to make the turn in 32 and open up a three shot lead.

Hansen, who made a single birdie on his front nine rallied and birdied the 10th, 12th and 14th to get to 19-under.



Nienaber failed to make birdie on the back nine and bogeyed the last two holes while Hansen made par to win by two shots ten years after turning professional.

“It’s quite emotional,” said Hansen. “This is what we work for, you know? The family watching back home.


“Wilco got in front quite quick, by three shots, and we managed to stick to our game and our plan. He’s long, he’s got some good things with the game hitting it very far and very straight so we knew we had to go out and do our own and do the things we’ve done the first three days. We succeeded pretty well today.

“I putted really well, almost haven’t missed a putt inside six feet and holed a lot of long ones as well.”



Shaun Norris closed with a 66 to finish in solo third place at 16-under while Brandon Stone, Aaron Cockerill and Steve Surry tied for fourth place at 13-under.
