Henrik Stenson will return to the Nedbank Golf Challenge hosted by Gary Player for the first time in three years, when The 2016 Open Champion tees it up in the penultimate Rolex Series event on the 2019 Race to Dubai from November 14 – 17, 2019.

Ever since the par-72 golf course opened at Sun City in the late Seventies, the Gary Player Country Club has been a timeless test of golf at the highest level and some of the world’s best golfers have walked its fairways.
