MALELANE, South Africa (AP) Brandon Stone ran away from his challengers to win the Alfred Dunhill Championship by seven shots on Sunday for his second European Tour title.

Stone finished with a 5-under 67 at Leopard Creek Country Club for 22 under overall, extending his advantage over the chasers after going into the final round three shots ahead.

Stone made seven birdies and two bogeys and it was a comfortable victory in the end for the 23-year-old South African, who followed up on his maiden tour title at the South African Open at the start of the year.
