MALELANE, South Africa -- Charl Schwartzel retained his title at the Alfred Dunhill Championship with a 4-under 68 Sunday for a four-shot win and his first European Tour victory in a year.

Schwartzel finished with a 17-under total of 271 at Leopard Creek in northern South Africa to secure his third Alfred Dunhill title. Richard Finch was second ahead of a three-way tie for third between Simon Dyson, Ross Fisher and Romain Wattel.

Schwartzel held the overnight lead and made four birdies in a bogey-free final round on a course where he has a history of success. The South African has four second-place finishes here to go with his now-record three titles. This was the former Masters champion's second title on the European Tour since winning at Augusta National in 2011.

"This tournament has been very good to me," Schwartzel said. "I've had lots of seconds here as well. Probably for the rest of my golfing career this will always be a special one."
