Jamieson wins playoff at Nelson Mandela Championship
Durban, South Africa (Sports Network) - Scott Jamieson parred both playoff holes on Sunday to win the weather-shortened Nelson Mandela Championship.
Jamieson fired an 8-under 57 on the shortened Royal Durban layout to finish at 7-under-par 123. He was joined there by Steve Webster (60) and Eduardo de la Riva (61).
De La Riva bogeyed the first extra hole, then Webster bogeyed the second extra hole. Jamieson made par both times to earn the win.
With the first two days getting washed out, the event was trimmed to 36 holes. Heavy rain pushed the start of the tournament back until Saturday, and with an overly saturated course, officials had to adjust several holes.
Three holes at Royal Durban switched from par-4s to par-3s, while the par-5 14th was also changed to a par-3. With those changes, the par shifted from 70 to 65.
Though Jamieson and Van Zyl both shot 57, they will not count in the record books with the shortened course and lift, clean and place rules being played.
First-round leaders Tim Clark and Morten Orum Madsen both shot 1-under 64. they shared fourth place at minus-6 with Maximilian Kieffer (62) and Matthew Nixon (61).
Van Zyl was one of six players that tied for eighth at 5-under 125.
