Six local professional golfers will cancel when Sunshine Tour returns after the summer holidays with the African Eye of Africa PGA Championships that start this Sunday until Sunday.

The event that began in 1923 as a game play tournament, before being transformed into its own shooting game format in 1965, returns to the Eye of Africa Signature Golf Estate south of Johannesburg with several international golfers.

Eye of Africa is proud of the R2 Million Prize Fund and Zimbabwean citizens Ryan Cairns and Mark Williams, Dean Nysschen took part in the tournament with relief.

On Monday, Benjamin Follet-Smith, Sheldon Steyn and Brian Gondo booked their seats through the qualifiers.

Trio was part of the 27 leading professionals who fought for 15 slots in previous qualifiers.

The African Eye was the first tournament in South Africa to have a European tour when the 1995 Lexington PGA Championship was held at the Wanderers Golf Club and won by Ernie Els.
