Glaswegian Paul Shields was deemed the
joint-winner of the Northern Amateur Open
in South Africa Friday after
the 36-hole final in Johan-
nesburg was abandoned
due to flooding.
At Randpark Golf Club,
Kirkhill’s Shields and South
African Aubrey Barnard were
locked all square after 30
holes before officials called a
halt to due to the unplayable conditions.
The contest had earlier been temporarily
stopped after nine holes due to rain as green-
keepers fought a losing battle.
Shields, who defeated Fraser McKenna (Bal-
more) in Thursday’s semi-final at the fourth extra
hole, was bidding to emulate compatriot David
Law’s win in the same competition a year ago.
