Lee-Anne Pace won the Investec South African Open for a fifth time, coming out on top in a six-hole play-off at Steenberg Golf Club.
The South African star began the final day seven shots off the lead but carded a fourth round of 70 to finish level with Magdalena Simmermacher.
Lee-Anne had enough to hold off Simmermacher's challenge for an 11th Ladies European Tour win of her career.
It also secured her a spot in the US Women's Open.
“I can’t believe it, I honestly can’t believe it, I’m in shock, it’s great to earn a place in the Majors as well," Lee-Ann said.
“I’ve been struggling on the greens all wind, I’ve been hitting so many greens all week, and everything came together except the putter, and nothing wanted to drop, but when it really counted it did on the last hole.”
