Cape Town - After
his breakthrough win at the BMW South African Open Championship earlier this
year, young South African golfer Brandon Stone is determined to build on his
successful start to 2016, and sees 2011 Masters champion Charl Schwartzel as
the man he’d love to emulate.
and Schwartzel, both playing in this week’s Sunshine and European Tour
co-sanctioned Tshwane Open at Pretoria Country Club, appear on The Dan Nicholl
Show on SuperSport 1 on Wednesday at 19:00, and Stone is full of confidence.
not quite at the level Charl’s at,” Stone concedes.
“But other than the four
Majors, you want to win your national championship, and to have done that at 22
makes me think that maybe in a few months, a few years, I can be chasing Charl
in America, and get my own green jacket. We can hopefully have a cool selfie
with two green jackets one day!”
who admits on the show to his love of playing in South Africa, is making his
2016 debut after an injury break, but says that the time off “was the longest
and best break I’ve had since I’ve turned professional”. Schwartzel leaves for
Los Angeles on Sunday night for a series of PGA Tour events leading up to The
Masters, and he recalls his victory at Augusta with great fondness.
two golfers are joined on this week’s show by Metro FM drive time host TBo
Touch, who chats about watching basketball in New York with Floyd Mayweather,
growing up with Grace Jones, and his new wine that debuts this weekend at the
Cape Wine Auction.
This week’s third guest is 2007 Rugby World Cup-winning
Springbok Butch James, who looks back at that famous night in Paris, looks
ahead to the imminent birth of his second son, and does his best to get a job
caddying for Schwartzel or Stone.
