Where is it?
This week the The Nedbank Golf Challenge is being played at Gary Player Country Club which is the third longest course played on the European Tour. The Nedbank Golf Challenge will also have been played twice in the 2016 European Tour season this year.
This course rewards straight drives as there is not a lot of room for error from the tee, with testing rough and bush lining many fairways. One thing to look out for is water hazards as they are cunningly placed to catch out any mistakes. A good test on tour this week.
Who's going well?
Staffer and home favourite George Coetzee and Golf Ball Loyalist Henrik Stenson have had great opening rounds of 69 (-3) leaving them just one off the lead after Round 1 of the tournament.
Titleist by Numbers:
At this week's European Tour event, 64% of the field trusted in the Titleist Pro V1 or Pro V1x to make a difference in their game. Therefore out of a field of 72 people, 46 players teed up a Titleist.
DP World Tour Championship, Jumeirah Golf Estates, Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Wishing all Titleist Brand Ambassadors and Golf Ball Loyalists the best of luck for the rest of the tournament.
