Aiken was the 10th home winner in the last 13 tour events in South Africa as he came from four shots off the lead with a final round 66, tying with England's Fisher at 20 under overall at East London Golf Club.

Aiken then won his third tour title by sinking a 30-foot birdie putt on the first playoff hole. Englishman David Horsey (65) and John Hahn (68) of the United States were tied for third, a shot behind.

Aiken's victory takes the overall stats to 36 South African victories in 58 European Tour tournaments in South Africa.
