He earned a spot in that elite field when he won The Nelson Mandela Championship in December of 2013. When one combines that with a his T2 in this event last year, he clearly enters the week as one of the favorites to keep an eye on.

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.

South Africa's Dawie van der Walt secured his first victory on the European Tour at the Tshwane Open, closing with a 5-under-par 32-35=67 to post 21-under 267, two clear of runner-up Darren Fichardt.

After winning the Africa Open two weeks ago, Fichardt was gunning for his second straight title, this time at Copperleaf Golf & Country Estate in Centurion, South Africa. He carded a bogey-free 69 today but it wasn't low enough to test his fellow South African. The duo shared the 54-hole lead with South African Charl Coetzee and Chile's Mark Tullo, who shot 72 and 77, respectively, in the finale to finish T5 and T27. van der Walt missed only six greens in regulation all week and suffered only one bogey (a 5 at the 10th hole today). In addition to 20 birdies, he eagled the par-5 fourth hole which, at 685 yards, was the longest in tour history. "You can only imagine what it’s like to win such big one," he said. "I’m just really happy that I played well and won, because you can play well and not win. You start doubting yourself and at 30 years old you start to wonder if you’re good enough and this shows me that I am."
