2. NO ALFRED DUNHILL CHAMPIONSHIP

It's confirmed!

The co-sanctioned European and Sunshine Tour's Alfred Dunhill Championship will not take place this year at Leopard Creek.

3. VETTEL DOES NOT DO SOCIAL MEDIA

Formula One World Championship leader Sebastian Vettel just cannot fathom the concept of social media.

He said in a recent interview that the social media life is really not for him.

It's a interesting fact considering his rival Lewis Hamilton has over 4 million followers on Twitter and Instagram, and has been in trouble a few times for his social media tendencies.
