After a 16 hour trip home from Australia, Gary had his first victory (he was now playing a limited schedule on the Sunshine Tour) on home soil in nearly two years, since winning the 1977 South African Open and ICL International. It was a come-from-behind victory. There was no fourth round because of rain out, and Gary was awarded his 117th career victory. He was in the group at 137 and then went out to take the lead and win with 66 in the final round.
