Peter Karmis eagled the 18th at Mount Edgecombe Country Club on Friday for a round of 67 and a two-stroke victory at the Sun Sibaya Challenge.
The 35-year-old found the middle of the green at the par-five 18th after a superb approach from the short grass, then drilled his 20-foot putt home for an eagle three and a total of 18 under par.

Three was the lucky number for Karmis, who lifted his third Sunshine Tour trophy after seeing off the challenge of 36-hole leader Oliver Bekker.
Karmis broke 70 in all three rounds of the R750,000 tournament, including a 63 on Wednesday that gave him the first-round lead.
Becker was unable to consolidate his overnight lead, which came on the back of a Thursday round of 62. He settled for sole second, two strokes clear of third-placed Tyrone Ferreira.
Wallie Coetsee, Madalitso Muthiya, Jonathan Agren, Charl Coetzee and Le Roux Ferreira shared fourth place.
