The European tour heads to Johannesburg this week, following on from the masters last week. Only one player makes the journey and he happens to be the market leader Christian Bezuidenhuit, however with the time difference, and having played the weekend at Augusta, he is readily swerved.
Daniel van Tonder returns to the European tour this week from the sunshine tour, since the end of August he has played 6 events and has amazingly won 4 of them! Winning golf events is no easy feat, and although the sunshine tour is a lower quality field, this is a very weak European tour field, and not much stronger than what he faced in those victories, he has to be of interest this week.
Shubhankar Sharma went into the tour shutdown with 2 successive missed cuts, and carried on this miserable form after with 5 more missed cuts from his next 6 events. He’s now made 7 cuts on the bounce and results are starting to head in an upwards trajectory. Hopefully his return to form and also a return to an event he has won previously will help him mount a serious challenge.
