Easton eagles 18 twice for Sunshine Tour win

Bryce Easton eagled the 18th hole twice late on Saturday and the second gave him a playoff victory at the Sun City Challenge on the South African Tour.

"The hole kind of sets up for me," said Easton, who earned his first victory on tour. "So I could fade the ball into the pin, even though it was close to the water."

Easton rolled in a 10-footer for eagle in regulation to shoot an even-par 72 at The Lost City Golf Course. That got him into the playoff with Brandon Pieters (71), Allan Versfeld (69) and Andrew Georgiou (71). The group finished at nine-under 207 and went back to 18.

Easton once again hit it to 10 feet with his second at 18. Only Pieters had an eagle putt in the extra session and his 20-footer lipped out.

Easton poured in his putt and walked off with the victory.
