Matt Baldwin won the SDC Championship title in South Africa for his first DP World Tour title in 200 attempts.

Baldwin, 37, finished the tournament on 18 under par.

He finished the first round three shots behind the leader Kristian Johannesen.

Baldwin took the lead for the first time in round three with a seven under par round 65, which was the best score in the round.

He sealed the win in round four with a four under par round to claim his first championship and the €239,000 prize money.

Speaking after his victory, Baldwin said: “It felt surreal, I never dreamt I would be able to play the 18th hole of a DP World tournament knowing I’m going to win.

“It’s not quite sunk in yet, I’m sure it will do tomorrow or in a couple of days.”

Looking to the rest of the campaign, Baldwin added: “I can’t wait, this [victory] proves a lot to me, it proves I’m good enough to be out here, I’ve had plenty of doubts over the last few years.”

He dedicated his championship win to his late step-dad.

“It’s been a tough 12 months with my step-dad dying, this win is for him,” he added.

Baldwin is set to feature in the Jonsson Workwear Open at Steyn City in Johannesburg, South Africa.
