South African Darren Fichardt won an abbreviated Johannesburg Open by one shot from England's Paul Waring and Welshman Stuart Manley.

A birdie on the last gave Fichardt the tournament, reduced to three rounds because of bad weather.

Waring, 32, shared the lead with Fichardt going into Sunday and shot a three-under-par 69 to the victor's 68.

Waring and 38-year-old Manley, both seeking a maiden European Tour victory, qualify for July's Open Championship.
