The tournament has had other
stops in Zambia, Zimbabwe and Swaziland with a
majority of the Sunshine Tour held in South Africa.
Palmer savored his first cut of the season on Friday
after a second-round of six-under-par 66.
He wins the blue jacket and part of the U.S.
$150,000 dollars on offer.
"I am very happy.
"It has been a tough first half of the year and
the validation of the persistence is good.
"The win has motivated me to go for more glory at
the Sunshine Tour," Palmer told Xinhua on Sunday.
Palmer said he approached the Masters tourney
with caution at the start but took an aggressive
tack on Sunday to claim his win.
"I wouldn’t say I was so conservative over the
first two rounds, but I definitely played more into
the middle of the greens much more aggressively."
