Open Championship

Player expects "Royal" battle

2014-07-17 14:00
Cape Town - As the world focuses on golf's oldest Major, the Open Championship, three-time winner Gary Player is predicting a battle between golf's elite stars for the title.

SCOREBOARD: Open Championship - Round 1

Player is backing golf's royalty to be in contention down the final stretch at Royal Liverpool on Sunday afternoon.

Sport24 asked South Africa's most celebrated golfer for his insight - and the Black Knight duly obliged.

Rory Mcilroy, Tiger Woods and Martin Kaymer were all tipped by Player as likely Open winners.
Sport24 are hoping that our South African golfers will indeed "wake up" and that one of players will be crowned the winner of the 143rd playing of The Open.
