DURBAN, South Africa – Dawie van der Walt shot a 4-under 66 Saturday to win the Nelson Mandela Championship by two shots, giving the tournament a South African victory in a week when the country bids farewell to its former president.
Van der Walt finished with a three-round total of 15-under 195 in the rain-shortened event for his second European Tour victory. Matthew Baldwin (68) and Jorge Campillo (68) were tied for second.
Organizers shortened the schedule to ensure the tournament did not run into Sunday out of respect for the funeral of Mandela.
Daniel Brooks had a three-shot lead after the second round, which was completed earlier Saturday. But he struggled with five bogeys and a double bogey in his final-round 76.
