Durban – South Africa's Dawie Van der Walt fired a four under 66 during the third and final round to win the Nelson Mandela Championship by two shots at the rain affected EPGA event on Saturday.
The 30-year-old finished the shortened tournament on 15-under par to finish ahead of Englishman Matthew Baldwin and Spaniard Jorge Campillo as he picked up his second European title at the saturated Mount Edgecombe golf club.
Frenchman Romain Wattel was alone in fourth three shots back, while South African Oliver Bekker was a further stroke back to complete the top five.
Overnight leader Daniel Brooks of England blew a three shot lead as he ballooned to a six over score of 76 to slide down the leaderboard and a joint 11th place finish.
The tournament was reduced to 54 holes after heavy rain washed out the first day's play as the European Tour remains in South Africa and heads to the Durban Open which begins next Thursday. – Sapa-AFP
