Success breeds Success

28 South Africans have now won a tournament on the European Tour after Thomas Aiken’s win in the Spanish Open – astounding for a country the size of South Africa. His win has been a long time coming but it follows on the enormous success South Africans have had over the past year – Ernie Els, Louis Oosthuizen, Charl Schwartzel, Rory Sabbatini and Thomas have all won in the current season and Tim Clark won the so called 5th Major last year. The younger guys are certainly feeding off each other realising that if their mate can win then perhaps they can as well. South African golf is as healthy as it has ever been and the current group of tour players are setting a fine example for the next generation not only with the tournaments they are winning but in the way they play the game. Congratulations to all of you and may we see a few more wins this year.
