Durban - Louis Oosthuizen has held off a spirited challenge from compatriot and 2012 winner Branden Grace to produce two sensational birdies to finish with a flourish and claim his second Volvo Golf Champions title at Durban Country Club on Sunday.

"I knew Branden was going to make a charge and I saw him up there early, and Thomas (Aiken) started off really well," Oosthuizen said.

"Luckily I was far enough where I could pitch it back into the grain and I could get it close."
