GEORGE, South Africa -- South African Branden Grace beat his more experienced countrymen Ernie Els and Retief Goosen in a playoff to win the Volvo Golf Champions on Sunday.

Grace birdied the first playoff hole at The Links at Fancourt -- the par-five 18th -- to earn his second consecutive victory on the European Tour, having won last week's Joburg Open. Both Els and Goosen parred the hole.

The three players had finished the final round in a tie on 12-under 280.
