Kwazulu-Natal, South Africa (Sports Network) - Jacques Blaauw fired an 8-under 64 on Friday to rally and win the Vodacom Origins of Golf.

He flew up the leaderboard with six birdies in the first nine holes. Blaauw reached 16-under with that burst and only needed birdies at 12 and 18 to earn his second win in four weeks.
