SA to host World Golf Championship

2011-04-12 10:41

South Africa had secured a five-year deal to host a World Golf Championship event, Sunshine Tour commissioner Gareth Tindall announced today.

Tindall said dates and venues for the event had yet to be decided, but they hoped to hold it for the first time in 2012.

The tournament would offer $10 million (R67 million) in prize money.

The World Golf Championships consists of four international tournaments – the Accenture Match Play Championship, the Cadillac Championship, the Bridgestone Invitational and the HSBC Champions – and the Sunshine Tour event would form the fifth of the series.
