Williams fired a four-under-69 to move up five places on the final day of the 54-hole tournament played at reportedly windy Wild Coast Sun Country Club.
That left the 32-year-old Bulawayo-born golfer on seven-under-par 203 for the tournament and earned him his third top 10 finish of the season.
Top Zambian professional Madalitso Muthiya notched up his maiden Sunshine Tour victory after a stunning final round of six-under-par 66 saw him jump two places on the leaderboard to win by two shots from South Africans Hennie du Plessis and Ockie Strydom on 11-under-par 199.
