JOHANNESBURG, South Africa — Joachim B. Hansen of Denmark overturned a three-shot deficit with nine holes remaining to win his first European Tour title at the Joburg Open on Sunday.

Wilco Nienaber of South Africa took a one-stroke lead into the final round at Randpark Golf Club and extended his advantage to three with three birdies from No. 4.

Hansen birdied the 10th, 12th and 14th holes to get into a tie for the lead before Nienaber bogeyed the 17th after almost finding the water to the left of the green.

Nienaber then dropped a shot on the last as Hansen saved par from a greenside bunker to seal a two-shot victory.
