Six local professional golfers will set off when the Sun returns after the summer holidays with the Olympics in Africa, held this morning by Sunday.
The event, which began in 1923 as a tournament for a match, before turning into an ongoing kick-forming format in 1965, returns to the Eye of Africa Signature Golf Estate south of Johannesburg with the participation of several international golfers.
The eye of Africa boasts a prize pool of R2 million and the Zimbabwean Ryan Cairns and Mark Williams, Dean Nishchen entered the tournament with an exception.
Benjamin Follett-Smith, Sheldon Stein and Brian Gondo retained their seats by qualifying on Monday.
The trio was part of the 27 best professionals who fought for the 15 pre-qualification slots.
Africa's eye was the first South African tournament to co-sanctioned the European Tour when the Lexington PGA Championship in 1995 was held at the Wondershire Golf Club and won Ernie Ells.
