Finally we have a tournament South Africans can rave about! This is without a doubt the most exciting tournament on the European tour for a while now. This tournament is loaded not only with the best players in the European tour but also a whopping 18 South Africans players including the likes of Charl Schwartzel, Ernie Els, Retief Goosen, and Louis Oosthuizen. Louis Oosthuizen should be quite excited for the tournament will be held at St Andrews where he won The Open Championship in 2010.

Five of the top six players in the Official World Golf Ranking – Luke Donald, Lee Westwood, defending champion Martin Kaymer, Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson will be competing for the  total prize money of $5million. 15 of the top 50 players in the world will be taking part in the tournament.

What is so exciting for me is that because the tournament is held in Scotland,  means that we in South Africa will be able to watch the golf during normal daylight hours for a change. It made my life really difficult in the past 2 weeks trying to watch live golf played in the US.

Martin Kaymer will be looking to successfully defend his title this weekend.

Be sure to come back on Monday to read our review of the tournament! Hopefully we will have a picture of a South African holding the trophy!
