Cape Town - South Africa's Branden Grace is ready and set to claim more titles in the upcoming season, starting at the Tournament of Champions this week.

Grace had a decent 2016 season, as he finished in the top 10 of the 2016 Race to Dubai standings with one European Tour win at the Qatar Masters.

"Overall, I'm pretty pleased with how I performed in 2016 winning on both the European and PGA Tours but, if I could have done anything differently, it would perhaps have been to win more than two titles," Grace told Gulf News website.

The world No 17 claimed top-five finishes in both the US Open and US PGA Championship last year.

"I should be well and truly warmed up and ready. I'm sure everyone wants to start the year on a high and I'm no different."

"That is the thing about golf, you always feel like there are areas to improve and I’m constantly working on both my weaknesses and strengths in all areas of my game to ensure I keep improving," said Grace.

"I'm aiming to win more titles. Fingers crossed!" asserted Grace.

Grace is set to make his debut at the Plantation course on Thursday, which boasts an impressive field headlined by defending champion Jordan Spieth and world No 1 Jason Day.

Grace will be the only South African participating in Hawaii after qualifying for the tournament thanks to a nine-under-par 275 win at the RBC Heritage last year.

The SBS Tournament of Champions is set to tee off on Thursday, January 5 in Maui, Hawaii.
