Dawie van der Walt shot a 4-under 66 on 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.
Spain's Jorge Campillo and South Africa's Colin Nel shot 59 on Friday in the second round of the rain-affected Nelson Mandela Championship, although they scores won't count as a European Tour record because players were allowed to use preferred lies on the soaked layout.
