McGrane finishes with 72

Damien McGrane shot a level-par 72 on the final day of the Joburg Open to finish 12 shots behind winner Branden Grace.

Opening rounds of 63 and 71 had put the Irishman in contention going into the weekend but a disastrous four-over par 76 on Saturday saw his chances of victory evaporate.

Although he was never going to trouble the leaders on Sunday birdies on the opening two holes put McGrane in a position to make a surge up the leaderboard. But a double-bogey on the 11th killed his momentum and he finished the tournament in a tie for 46th on five under.
