Justin Harding wrapped up a second European Tour triumph by winning the Magical Kenya Open by two strokes in Nairobi on Sunday.
The 35-year-old returned to the winners’ circle with a final-round 66 to edge out American Kurt Kitayama.
Holding the overnight lead, Harding went five under for the day, signing off the week with a winning score of 21 under par.
The South African was pushed by Kitayama throughout the final round and waged the battle with a focussed and determined performance.

Three birdies and an eagle on the ninth sealed a bogey-free display for Harding as Kitayama settled for second place on 19 under par for the event.
Fellow countryman Jacques Kruyswijk also ended the Kenya Open on a high with a spectacular final-round 64 that gave him a share of fifth spot, while Dean Burmester went four under for his round to end in T8.
In total six South Africans finished the event inside the top-20 with Justin Walters, George Coetzee and Garrick Higgo all delivering solid performances.
