Danny Willett charged past Luke Donald with a final-round 66 to win the Nedbank Golf Challenge at Sun City by four shots on Sunday.

Willett claimed his second European Tour title ahead of Ross Fisher (68), while overnight leader Donald slipped to third in an all-English top three.

Willett had an impressive amateur career but had won just once on the tour — at the BMW International in 2012 — before Sunday.

He made six birdies and no bogeys on the final day to finish with rounds of 65 and 66 over the weekend for an 18-under-par total of 270 at Gary Player Country Club.

The former top-ranked Donald, seeking a first title in more than a year, ended with a 73 and finished six shots behind Willett.
