Durban - Golfers in the Volvo Champions will receive police escorts from their hotels on Saturday to avoid traffic delays around the nearby 101st anniversary rally of the African National Congress in Durban.

South African President Jacob Zuma will address an expected crowd of 80 000 in Kings Park Stadium across the road from Durban Country Club golf course.
