The South African open saw Chris Paisley win by 3 shots. Branden Grace had a superb round on day 1 in which he carded 3 eagles however it was still not enough for him to have the outright lead on day one. Chris Paisley from England was the early pace setting after day 2, with the chasing pack falling away slightly. Paisley only just kept his card for this year with a 2nd place finish on he access list. Despite not having his regular caddie on the bag and his wife having to step in and fill the role, Chris held onto his lead to secure the win. Retief Goosen was rolling back the years and at one point was in the top 3. Ernie Els also comfortably made the cut but defending champion and local man, Graeme Storm, bowed out at the first hurdle.
