George Coetzee recorded a final round 65 on his home course at Pretoria Country Club to win the Tshwane Open, seeing off the challenge of South African compatriot Jacques Blaauw by one stroke.

A birdie at the 17th hole helped seal the second European Tour win for the 28-year-old Coetzee.

Darren Clarke was the only Irish man to make it past the second round cut and he finished on five under after a final round 69.

Meanwhile, Jordan Spieth won his second PGA Tour title after claiming the Valspar Championship in a play-off with Patrick Reed and Sean O’Hair.
