Dawie van der Walt recorded a two-stroke victory at The Nelson Mandela Championship at Mount Edgecombe Country Club in Durban, South Africa.

After a shift to conclude on Saturday, the tournament was reduced to 54 holes due to incessant rain midweek, but it still goes in the books as van der Walt's second career European Tour title. The South African sat three strokes adrift of England's Daniel Brooks entering the finale. van der Walt then carded a 4-under-par 33-33=66 with an eagle (at the par-5 12th hole) and five birdies against three bogeys. He posted 15-under 195. Brooks closed with a 6-over 40-36=76 to settle for a share of 11th place. Jorge Campillo, who shot a 59 in the second round, tied for second place with Matthew Baldwin at 13-under 197. "Winning The Nelson Mandela at this time, when it’s sad for everyone, everyone is mourning and tomorrow’s the big day," said van der Walt, "it means a lot and it’s something I can keep close to my heart for ever." For finishing atop the Sunshine Tour's Order of Merit, van der Walt earned exemptions into the WGC-Cadillac Championship and Open Championship.

Ben Martin backed up his opening 69 at the RBC Heritage with a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in his second round to post 5-under 137, good for a share of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Martin was alone atop the leaderboard and bogey-free in the round until incurring a bogey-5 at the ninth hole, his last of the loop. Prior to it, he rolled in four birdies, including conversions of 14'1" and 12'8" at the 13th and fifth holes, respectively. The PGA TOUR sophomore -- his rookie season was 2011 -- is a Clemson product, and the RBC is the only TOUR event in South Carolina, so there's some synergy in play as he chased his first victory this weekend.

Jim Furyk crafted a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-33=66 in his second round of the RBC Heritage to post 5-under 137 at the midpoint, good for a piece of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Furyk split 11 (of 14) fairways and went 5-for-5 in scrambling during his two-day loop of Harbour Town. He found five birdies, including a 15-yard hole-out from the rough at the par-4 third. His longest of the conventional variety measured 16'8" at 11 and 10'5" at 9. He made only one bogey in the lid-lifter.

Scott Brown completed a 2-under-par 36-33=69 for his second round of the RBC Heritage this morning.

Play restarted at 8:01 a.m. ET. Brown was among the 65 stranded when play was suspended on Friday afternoon due to inclement weather. He pitched in for eagle from the rough 27 yards out at the par-5 second hole and circled three birdies, including conversions from 13'6" and 10'8" at Nos. 4 and 5, respectively.

Billy Hurley III twirled a bogey-free, 2-under-par 34-35=69 in his second round of the RBC Heritage to post 3-under 139, two strokes adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

He hit only 10 greens in regulation and circled two birdies, but today's scoring average is likely going to showcase this as one of the rounds of the day. Toss in the fact that this is his first appearance at Harbour Town and he entered on an 0-for-3 skid. Hurley III opened par-birdie-par-birdie, the last conversion measuring 14'6" at the par-3 fourth hole.

Bill Haas withdrew from the RBC Heritage prior to his second round, citing a wrist injury.

Haas was scheduled to go off the first tee at 12:50 p.m. ET. He opened with a 1-over-par 36-36=72. It's the first time in 251 PGA TOUR starts that he's withdrawn during a tournament and it ends his consecutive cuts made streak at 14. He co-led the Shell Houston Open after 18 holes and sat alone at the top of the Masters after one round, but went on to finish T37 and T20, respectively. If an explanation is released for today's decision, we will relay it to you.

K.J. Choi spun a 4-under-par 34-33=67 in his second round of the RBC Heritage to post 5-under 137 at the midpoint, good for outright possession of the clubhouse lead.

Choi hit 11 greens in regulation today and picked off six birdies, including a hole-out from the rough seven yards away at the par-4 11th. All of his other par breakers were of the conventional method and included conversions from 14 feet, 24'2" and 23'3" at Nos. 2, 8 and 16, respectively. He also saved par from 10'1" at the par-4 third. The South Korean tied for 18th at Harbour Town last year.

During his second round of the Maybank Malaysian Open in Kuala Lumpur, Pablo Larrazábal found refuge in a lake after being attacked by hornets.

He was playing the par-5 fifth hole when the dangerous insects were seemingly attracted to his shirt. "They were three times the size of bees," he said. "They were huge and like 30 or 40 of them started to attack me big time. I didn’t know what to do. My caddie told me to run, so I start running like a crazy guy, but the hornets were still there, so the other players told me to jump in the lake. I ran to the lake, threw my scorecard down, took off my shoes and jumped in the water. It was the scariest moment of my career, for sure. I’ve never been so scared." Naturally, he birdied the hole and shot 4-under 68. "The referees and a doctor took me aside and gave me a couple of injections and told me to relax. After the injections I felt a lot better and could continue. Without the help of the referees I couldn’t have finished the round, because I was in no state to play golf."

In a feature at Golfweek.com, Jim McCabe explained why Steve Marino hadn't competed in 2014 until his first round of the RBC Heritage.

After missing the cut at the OHL Classic of Mayakoba, the final stop before the holiday break, Marino injured his left leg after jumping onto a sandbar from his boat. He fractured the fibula and tore ligaments in his ankle. Note that this is the same leg on which he had surgery in his knee in October of 2011. He also received a stem call injection to aid in the healing process. Only recently was he comfortable in walking 18 holes in competition. "I feel really good," Marino said. "I think I'm ready." Suddenly, his opening 72 at Harbour Town looks a little better.

William McGirt crafted a 5-under-par 31-35=66 in his opening round of the RBC Heritage, earning a piece of the overnight lead.

We've stated it here before, but it happened again today. McGirt found another gear with his putter despite hitting only 11 greens in regulation. He connected four birdies beginning at the second hole, the last three of which measuring 11 feet, 14'9" and 20'11", respectively. He made the turn with another birdie conversion at 9, this time from 11'6". After a bogey-6 at 15, his only blemish of the round, the North Carolina native rolled in a par save from 12'4" at 16, and then holed out for birdie from a bunker 14 yards out at the par-3 17th. At last check, his strokes gained-putting split, which doesn't include the jarred bunker blast, sat at a gaudy 4.757. He arrived at Harbour Town ranked 32nd on the PGA TOUR in SG-P, but has just two top 25s in 14 starts.

With a 5-under-par 31-35=66 for his opening round of the RBC Heritage, Scott Langley shares the clubhouse lead.

Since a solo third at Copperhead five weeks ago, Langley is 0-for-2. That mini-drought figures to end at Harbour Town where he hit 12 greens in regulation and circled seven birdies today. He holed six of them on the front nine, but the only of notable distance measured 17 feet at the par-3 14th. He also salvaged a par from 11'1" at 3.

Greg Chalmers withdrew from the RBC Heritage during his opening round due to a back injury.

The lefty split the expansive fairway at the par-4 18th hole, his ninth of the round, and then walked off. He was 5-over-par through eight holes with no par breakers, three bogeys and a double. It's just his third mid-tournament WD in 349 PGA TOUR starts. It drops him to 8-for-14 on the season. He started the week slotted 109th in FedExCup points.
