Ross Fisher won the 2014 Tshwane Open at the Ernie Els-designed Copperleaf course by three shots from Michael Hoey and Danie Van Tonder to give him his first tournament victory for four years.

The Englishman triumphed at Copperleaf course, which is the longest in European Tour history, standing at an impressive 7,964 yards in total.

It also boasts four par-fives measuring over 600 yardsthe first course on the European Tour to do thatwhile the par-five No. 4 is the longest hole in European Tour history at a daunting 685 yards in length.
