Van Zyl wins 3rd straight Telkom PGA Pro-Am

Jaco Van Zyl fired an eight-under-par Am.

"Winning the title three times in a row is way beyond my expectations," said Van Zyl, who collected his 10th Sunshine Tour title. "Winning any event takes a lot of hard work and a lot of effort, so to do it three years in a row is a huge privilege."

Van Zyl finished three rounds at 19-under 197 and won by six strokes at Centurion Country Club.

He became the first player since Bradford Vaughan to win three straight championships when Vaughan captured the Limpopo Classic from 2004-2006.

Jean Hugo shot a five-under 67 and took second at minus-13.

Justin Walters shared the second-round lead with Van Zyl, but Walters' one- under 71 on Friday left him in third place at 12-under 204.

Alex Haindl (65) and Jake Roos (69) tied for fourth at 11-under 205, followed by Darren Fichardt, who carded a four-under 68 in the final round to take sixth at minus-10.
