Ariel Canete wins the Joburg Open

Published 14/01/2007

A late flurry from Argentina's Ariel Canete was enough to seal victory in the

inaugural Joburg Open.

Canete was level with South African Andrew McLardy on 17 under with two holes

to play but consecutive birdies claimed the title for the Latin American.

No less than 36 players had to return early on Sunday morning to complete

their third round, interrupted by a heavy thunderstorm on Saturday afternoon,

before the fourth round teed off.

The surprise of the morning was the upsurge of South African Alex Haindl, who

shot a 67 to join compatriot Hennie Otto in third place.
