Wilson shot a final-round 67 to join the tie for third that also included Schwartzel, Thomas Aiken and Bryce Easton.

Wallace hit six birdies but suffered three bogeys on the back nine in carding a 68.

Schwartzel's 12 under par tournament total is one ahead of Zambian Madalitso Muthiya, who followed up his opening round 63 with a 68 on the tougher Firethorn Course.

Birdies at the first and fifth helped Schwartzel turn in 33 and he was edging into contention after further gains on the 11th, 12th and 14th.

But it was the 2010 Open champion who dominated the tournament thanks to a spirited recovery from his nervy start on the final day, responding to bogeys at the second and third with four birdies over the next six holes which hoisted him five strokes clear of the chasing pack.

"For the second successive round I struggled off the tee early on and had to bite the bullet before coming good as the round progressed".

The Swadesh Bazaar in Rajasthan's Udaipur had a special visitor on Sunday - former USA first lady Hillary Clinton . Anand further expressed his love in a romantic speech praising his lady love, Isha, over and over.

"We had a tough start today and my caddie just told me, "you're swinging it well, just go for it".

Former Masters champion Schwartzel, 34, believes he has been hitting the ball better than ever in practice, but is still looking for his first tour title in nearly three years. I hit a few bad drives but the putter rolled nicely. "I'm trying to figure it out", he said. "It's probably the most consistent I've driven the ball and I've felt it in practice, I've been doing the same".

But Patton Kizzire and Brian Harman eagled the 17th at Tiburon Golf Club's Gold Course in Naples to edge in front on 30-under par. It's just this little thing called golf.

The American went bogey-free all week, closing with an eight-under-par 64 to finish on 23-under par and match Thaworn Wiratchant's winning total previous year.

Rebula, 21, claimed the British Amateur Championship at Royal Aberdeen in June.

Schedule clashes meant Oosthuizen was playing in the South African Open for the first time since 2010 and he wept after clinching an ultimately comfortable victory.
