Cape Town - SA's top ranked golfer Louis Oosthuizen recorded an ace in the final round of the South African Open at Randpark Golf Club on Sunday - but it wasn't enough to bring him victory. 

Oosthuizen, who led by one stroke going into the final day, made a hole-in-one on the eighth hole.

It was Oosthuizen's fourth hole-in-one of his professional career after aces at the 2016 Masters, 2016 Open Championship and 2019 WGC-HSBC Championships.

Although he took the lead with the hole-in-one, Oosthuizen ultimately fell short of victory and had to settle for second behind his compatriot Branden Grace, who romped to the SA Open title.

Grace made eight birdies and an eagle to shoot a 9-under 62 in the final round to win the tournament.

Oosthuizen carded a 3-under 68 to finish at 18-under par.
