Re: Open Era Tournament Ownership

Reigning US Open champion Angel Cabrera will lead a field that includes four Major winners and two Presidents Cup campaigners when the South African Airways Open tees off at Pearl Valley Golf Estates in December.

Cabrera will join defending South African Airways Open champion Ernie Els, former champion Retief Goosen and former world number one Greg Norman on the fairways of the Jack Nicklaus-designed Pearl Valley when the €1,000,000 Championship is played there from 13 to 16 December 2007.

Pearl Valley Golf Estates will become the home of the Championship for the next three years, it was announced today. The three-year deal is aimed at ensuring greater investment in the medium and long-term success of the Open.

The deal, and the presence of five of the world's leading golfers and the iconic Norman, offer powerful examples of the growing status the South African Airways Open enjoys on the international golf schedule.

Cabrera returns to the Championship having claimed his first Major in the US Open at Oakmont this year, while Els and Goosen bring a total of five Majors between them - and Norman brings a record of 88 tournament wins including two Majors.

The world-class field also includes Presidents Cup campaigners and former South African Airways Open champions Trevor Immelman and Tim Clark.
