SU­PERS­PORT DI­ARY

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - News -

English­man Andy Sullivan re­turns to Glen­dower from Jan­uary 7-10 to de­fend the 105th BMW SA Open. He was 149th in the World Rank­ing when he tri­umphed last year in a play­off over Charl Schwartzel, and had risen to No 34 by early De­cem­ber. Sullivan’s great year in 2015 on the Euro­pean Tour was kick-started early last year by his two SA vic­to­ries, the other be­ing the Joburg Open. He later won the Por­tu­gal Masters, and fin­ished eighth in the Race to Dubai. Schwartzel will again be at Glen­dower, seek­ing his first SA Open tri­umph. Tour­na­ment host Ernie Els (right, with Sullivan and Ex­ec­u­tive Mayor of the City of Ekurhu­leni Mondli Gun­gubele) will be play­ing, and most likely Louis Oosthuizen and Bran­den Grace.
