Six local professional golfers will turn off when the Sunshine Tour returns after the summer holidays with the PGA Championship of Eye of Africa taking place this morning to Sunday.
The event, which began in 1923 as a tournament in the match, before being transformed into its current form of play in 1964, returns to the Eye of Africa Signature Golf Estate south of Johannesburg and is also attended by several international golfers.
About Africa has a prize pool of R2 million, and Zimbabwean Ryan Cairns and Mark Williams, Dean Nysschen have entered the tournament through the exemption.
Benjamin Follet-Smith, Sheldon Steyn and Brian Gondo have booked their seats through qualifying on Monday.
The trio was part of the 27 top-level professionals who fought for 15 places in pre-qualification.
Eye of Africa was the first tournament in South Africa that was approved on the European tour when the Lexington PGA championship was held at the Wanderers Golf Club in 1995 and won by Ernie Els.
