JOHANNESBURG---Andy Sullivan won
his first European Tour title with a
brilliant birdie on the first playoff hole
as Charl Schwartzel let slip a five-shot
overnight lead in a late collapse at the
South African Open yesterday.
Schwartzel (74) finished terribly, mak-
ing two bogeys and a double-bogey in
his last five holes to fall back to 11-under
and allow Sullivan (67) a chance at vic-
tory in the playoff.
Both players missed the fairway off
the tee in the playoff but Sullivan sent
a low pitch from under a tree onto the
green, and then holed out for an unex-
pected birdie to win.
"It s unbelievable," Sullivan said.
"After Saturday I didn t think I stood
much of a chance with Charl getting
ahead that far."
The Englishman made up seven shots
on Schwartzel in the final round and
was waiting in the clubhouse when the
South African unravelled at the end to
miss out on a first South African Open
title after leading by four shots with
five holes to play.
Schwartzel found a greenside bunker
on No 14, three-putted on No 16 for
double-bogey and fluffed a tee shot on
17 to drop another shot. He also found
the rough off the tee on No 18 and had
to scramble for a par to send the tour-
nament to a playoff.
Both drove into the long grass when
they teed off at No 18 again. But Sullivan
recovered with a sublime low punch
through the tree branches and to 12
feet, before rolling in the putt for his
maiden tour title. He pumped his fist
with delight after a missed birdie on
the last in regulation play appeared to
have ensured he would have no chance
