European Tour - Joberg Open
With the PGA Tour taking a break this week, we head to the European Tours opening event at Randpark Johannesberg, South Africa.
Randpark isn't an overly difficult tree lined course set approximately 5,000 feet above sea level which allows the course to play shorter than it's actual distance. There are water hazards that come into play on seven holes including the last 3 down the stretch which could make for an interesting finish!

Course: Randpark, Johannesburg, South Africa
Length: 6862 meters
Defending Champion: Joachim B Hansen
