Ernie Els, the SAA Open defending champion must be having one thing in mind: to defend his title successfully when he tees off at the Pearl Valley Golf Estate in Paarl today.
Els, whose wish was to end the season on a high by winning either the Nedbank Golf Challenge or the Alfred Dunhill Championship, missed the two by a whisker, fini- shing third in both tournaments.
He will now be faced with an exceptionally good player in Tim Clark, who believes that the SAA is the most important tournament for him.
Apart from Clark, there are golfers such as Omar Sandys, who came 14th in the Alfred Dunhill, James Kamte, who is one the top black golfers in the country, Tangoona Charamba and Lindani Ndwandwe.
They are eager to win this four-day event that ends on Sunday.
Sandys, who has played in this tournament for nine years, said he was prepared and hopes to do well on the day.
During the Alfred Dunhill tournament, Sandys played well in the first two days, registering 68, 68 and the last two days he registered 74,73.
"My drives did not go on well in the last two days. I had no power and I wondered what was wrong with me.
"As a result I finished 14th. But I'm determined to double up my efforts and finish in the top 10 bracket."
