European Tour comes to Durban, South Africa

11 January 2013

After a lovely Christmas break and following all the New Year celebrations everyone is now back on duty, including the pro golfers who were back on the golf course from 4th Jan. It kicked off with the USPGA Tour: Hyundai Tournament of Champions in Hawaii. This event finished on Tuesday with America’s Dustin Johnson taking the victory with a four shot lead.

Things moved closer to home on Thursday as the European Tour: Volvo Golf Champions got underway at the Royal Durban Golf Club in Durban.

We’ve got a few fellow South Africans in the mix including Branden GRACE, Jbe KRUGER, Darren FICHARDT, Retief GOOSEN, Ernie ELS and of course, Louis OOSTHUIZEN who after his fantastic end of year performance is certainly one of the favourites for 2013.

With a total prize fund of $2,000,000 this years winner will take home in the region of €350,000 – it’s no surprise this event is therefore expected to be a tough fought challenge.

The competition concludes on Sunday so make sure you pop back next week to find out who came out on top!
