Germany’s Nick Bachem claimed a dream debut victory on the DP World Tour when he won the Jonsson Workwear Open, co-sanctioned with the Sunshine Tour, by four shots at The Club at Steyn City on Sunday.

The 23-year-old finished 24 under par at The Club at Steyn City for his first win on the DP World Tour, with home duo Hennie Du Plessis and Zander Lombard sharing second place on 20 under.

He said: "It's just amazing. I can't understand what's happening the last couple of days, it's just amazing and feels great.

I was super-nervous

"I just had the goal to enjoy today, it's just the beginning of my career so I just enjoyed it as much as possible and played great and got lucky that it was my day.

"I thought it was super-close and then I saw the leaderboard on 15, saw I was four shots ahead or whatever and then I was super-nervous. I just kept on going and it was a pretty nice finish."

Ockie Strydom, winner of December's Alfred Dunhill Championship and last month's Singapore Classic, kick-started his challenge with three successive birdies from the tenth but had to settle for joint fourth alongside Scotland's Ewen Ferguson. Strydom rises to fourth on the Race to Dubai Rankings in Partnership with Rolex.

Joakim Lagergren, whose 63 on Saturday set the lowest round of the week, carried on his momentum with birdies at the first and third only to give the shots back at the next two holes. A two-under-par 70 eventually took him to 18 under, level with Green and Kristian Krogh Johannessen after the Norwegian matched Bachem for the low round of the day.

Johannessen started the day seven shots off the pace but ended it with a second successive top-10 finish, having shared third at last week's SDC Championship.

Sweden's Sebastian Soderberg reached the turn in 32 and on a run of four straight birdies but remained 17 under after a level-par back nine, finishing alongside France's Romain Langasque and South Africans Hennie O'Kennedy and Jacques Kruyswijk.
