It was here that Gary sensed the mood of the other pros on the local circuit. They had regrettably built up a resentment possibly born of competitive jealousy against him, and because of this, he decided to play only a limited annual schedule in South Africa.

All this came after Gary won the Dunlop Masters for the second consecutive year by three strokes over Bobby Cole.
