Sergio Garcia

The winner of the 2017 Masters will be making his 10th appearance in the Nedbank Golf Challenge, hosted by Gary Player.

This year he will be seeking to become the first European golfer to win “Africa’s Major” three times. Garcia won the Nedbank Golf Challenge in 2001 and 2003, on both occasions beating South Africans to the title.

In 2001 he closed with a final round of 63 to tie Ernie Els, and then on the first playoff hole he holed his chip on the par-three 16th to win. Then in 2003 he beat Retief Goosen, and also in a playoff.

His last appearance in the Nedbank Golf Challenge came in 2013 when he finished second to Thomas Bjørn.

Garcia has claimed 33 professional titles and had on four occasions finished second in the Majors before making his breakthrough at Augusta National Golf Club last year.
