Bogota - South Africa's Brenden Pappas won the Bogota Open on Sunday when lightning wiped out the third round, reducing the Nationwide Tour event to 36 holes.

The 40-year-old had rounds of 67 and 66 to finish at 9-under at Bogota Country Club. He earned $108 000 in official money, but is credited with an unofficial victory because the players failed to complete 54 holes in the scheduled 72-hole tournament.

"This was a hollow victory because it's unofficial," Pappas said. "We didn't get to play 72 holes, but it's a victory nonetheless."

Pappas's group played three holes before the players were pulled off the course for the last time just before 14:00.

Matt Every shot two 67s to finish second. Pappas's birdie on his 36th hole on Saturday was the margin of victory over Every.
