After a three-and-a-half year drought on the US PGA Tour, South Africa's Ernie Els finally added another win on American soil, coming from three shots off the pace to claim the Honda Classic in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida on Sunday.
South Africa has the weather, the courses ... and the players. The country has produced some of the best in the game, including multiple major winners Bobby Locke, Gary Player, Ernie Els and Retief Goosen, and a host of others that regularly challenge for big titles around the world.
Voted South Africa's sportsman of the twentieth century, Gary Player is one of only five people to have won golf's Grand Slam, has 163 international tournament victories to his name - 63 more than the great Jack Nicklaus - and is thought to have travelled further for sport than any athlete in history.
