Nedbank Golf Challenge organisers have announced that Keegan Bradley, Louis Oosthuizen and Branden Grace will play at the 2015 Nedbank Golf Challenge in Sun City.
The globally celebrated stars will play as part of the 30-man field for the 03 – 06 December tournament.
They will join Webb Simpson, Robert Streb and Scott Piercy (United States); Lee Westwood and Danny Willett (England); Henrik Stenson (Sweden); Steven Bowditch (Australia) and Ernie Els as well as Thomas Aiken (South Africa).
Bradley will make his debut and as part of a star-studded group of players announced to the media at the Gary Player Country Club on Tuesday.
Piercy makes his debut at Sun City on the back of a solid season on the PGA Tour in which he won the McGladrey Classic (played in October 2014 but forming part of the PGA Tour’s 2015 season) and had a further eight top-10 finishes. He also finished tied 18th in the Open and tied 10th in the PGA Championship.
Englishman Westwood returns to Sun City hoping to win a third Nedbank Golf Challenge title following his victories in 2010 and 2011, and which would place him alongside David Frost, Nick Price and Els as the only players to have achieved this in the tournament’s history.
Mzansi’s own Oosthuizen and Grace produced a celebrated performance for the International team in the recent Presidents Cup in which they became the first International pairing to win all four matches before the Sunday singles. This included a 4&3 victory over American favourites Dustin Johnson and Jordan Spieth.
Australian Steven Bowditch is another player making his debut in the Nedbank Golf Challenge. He claimed his second PGA Tour title this year in the AT&T Byron Nelson and will be looking to become only the second Australian winner of “Africa’s Major” following Robert Allenby in 2009.
