The golfers are eager to make a mark at this year’s championship.

“It is good to be back here, and I am looking forward to some good rounds of golf the good thing is the weather here and Pretoria is pretty much the same and I have been there for a long time so this feels like home,” said golfer, Jacques Blaauw.

Another golfer, Keegan Shutt said, “Looking to make a mark here, this is home, and we need to stamp our authority here.”

The strong lineup of golfers is led by former winners, Darren Fichart and JC Ritchie, while last year’s runner-up Jacques de Villiers is also in the mix.
