By Herman R Gibbs, Cape Dreams Editor

The Poms swept the floor with the strong Nedbank Golf Challenge field for a 1,2, 3 finish at Sun City on Sunday.
In the process Danny Willett claimed his second ever tour title with victory after a fantastic final round of 6 under par 66 to win by 4 from Ross Fisher and 6 from Luke Donald.
On his way to the title Willett hit his fellow Englishmen for a six with three birdies on the front nine, and another three on the way home in a faultless round.
Willett’s previous victory was back in 2012 when he triumphed at the BMW International Open.
The best SA finish were the tied seventh places for Tim Clark and Louis Oosthuizen.
