Host venues for amateur swing announced
Maricopa, AZ. Biltmore Hotel GC. Coral Cables, FL. January , TBD , TBD,
THE ONE AND ONLY WORLD AMATEUR GOLF TOUR
The three events run consecutively and make up the South African Swing, which attracts numerous top international teams and players. Individual champion James du Preez, who won by three shots at Glendower in , will not be there to defend his title, having turned professional, but an army of talented young South African golfers will be eager to step up to the plate. To do that, they will need to fend off the challenge of some strong international competition. The Scots, in particular, have an impressive record at Leopard Creek, having won the team event in and and claiming a finish in the event, won by Liam Johnston. Last year Deon Germishuys edged home favourite Chris Woollam in extra holes to bring the trophy back to Western Province and the Strand golfer should again be a force on home turf.
