Chris Paisley broke through for his maiden European Tour title at the BMW South African Open and much like his countryman Andrew "Beef" Johnston when he got his first win, he plans on celebrating hard.

The European Tour tweeted a video shortly after the 31-year-old Englishman's three-shot victory at Glendower Golf Club, in which Paisley says he's going to get "mortal."

For those of you based in north-east England, you will realise this means to get very, very drunk...



Paisley was playing a host of all-new Callaway equipment including a prototype driver, prototype fairways, prototype golf ball and a trio of just-launched Mack Daddy 4 wedges.

South African playing partner and fellow Callaway staff player Branden Grace, who finished runner-up, also switched to the prototype driver and fairways.

Grace, an eight-time European Tour winner, averaged a stunning 312 yards off the tee across the four tournament rounds, with Paisley also breaking through the magic barrier, averaging 303 yards.

Paisley, who turned Pro in 2010, shot rounds of 66, 65, 70 and a flawless final-round 66 to claim the title and a winning kiss from his stand-in caddie wife, Keri.
