Scott Jamieson wins rain-shortened Nelson Mandela Championship after 3-way playoff

Scotland's Scott Jamieson won his first European Tour title on Sunday, beating England's Steve Webster and Spain's Eduardo de la Riva in a playoff after the Nelson Mandela Championship was reduced to a 36-hole shootout because of rain.

Jamieson shot an 8-under 57 in his second round at the shortened Royal Durban Golf Club course, which was adjusted to a par-65 and reduced by about 1,600 yards after being under water on Thursday and Friday because of thunderstorms.

Jamieson's score — the second 57 of the day after South Africa's Jaco van Zyl — gave him a 7-under total of 123 to sit tied with Webster and De la Riva. Jamieson won on the second playoff hole after Webster made a bogey. De la Riva was eliminated on the first extra hole.
