Norris wins Nashua Masters by 1
Port Edward, South Africa – Shaun Norris fired a five-under 65 on Sunday to come from behind and win the Nashua Masters on the South African Tour.
Norris finished at nine-under 271 and won by a single stroke at the Wild Coast Sun Country Club.
Tyrone Mordt managed a three-under 67 but lost by one in a great battle down the stretch.
After Mordt birdied the par-five 16th, he was two clear of Norris. At the par- three 17th, Norris sank a 10-foot birdie try, while Mordt three-putted for bogey.
The pair was tied, but Mordt lipped out a two-footer for par on the last hole. That shocking bogey was the margin of victory for Norris, who got his second Sunshine Tour win.
Norris credited a putter change last week for the new-found success.
"My putting couldn't get any worse," he said, "so I changed to the long putter for last week's BMG Classic in Johannesburg, and I tied for third there, so it was an easy decision to keep using it this week."
Darren Fichardt (66) took third at minus-five 275.
Ulrich van den Berg (66) and Brandon Pieters (69) shared fourth at four-under 276.
