American David Lipsky has survived a double-bogey on his third-last hole to hang on for a two-shot victory at the European Tour's Alfred Dunhill Championship after shooting a final round 68 at Leopard Creek Country Club in South Africa.
Lipsky, 30, completed his second win on Tour on Sunday and his first success since he claimed the Omega European Masters in 2014, finishing two shots ahead of Scotland's David Drysdale (67), who carded the joint lowest score of the round but is still seeking a first win on Tour after three runner-up finishes.
"I didn't make too many mistakes, my putting and wedge play was probably the best it's ever been," Lipsky said at the trophy presentation.
"It's a very difficult course but I toughed it out. This is my first time here so I hadn't seen the course before."
He admitted the double-bogey on 16 had left him with some jitters.

"It was a little stressful for me, I wish I hadn't done that! But I finished strong and that is all that matters."
Lipsky started his final round a shot behind overnight leader Scott Jamieson (72) but surged ahead as he birdied three of his first five holes, while his playing partner had dropped two shots by the end of the 5th.
The American led by five strokes at one stage, but a run of birdies from home golfer Zander Lombard (69) and Drysdale cut his lead to one before a birdie on the last made the win more comfortable.
Victorian Deyen Lawson shot 70 in his final round to finish 14 shots off the lead in 47th place, while Dimi Papadatos carded a fourth round 73 to finish in 51st place.
