American Keegan Bradley will make his debut in the 2015 Nedbank Golf Challenge as part of a star-studded group of players announced to the media at the Gary Player Country Club.
The 2011 PGA Championship winner was announced alongside fellow Major champion Louis Oosthuizen as well as Lee Westwood, Branden Grace, Robert Streb, Scott Piercy and Steven Bowditch as part of the 30-man field for the 3-6 December tournament. They join Ernie Els, Webb Simpson, Danny Willett, Henrik Stenson and Thomas Aiken, who had already been confirmed for the European Tour and Sunshine Tour co-sanctioned tournament at Sun City.
Bradley is the fourth Major champion in the current field of 12 players. The winner of three PGA Tour titles became only the fourth golfer in history to win a Major on debut when he claimed the 2011 PGA in his rookie season as a professional.
Bradley adds to a strong American challenge for this year’s tournament alongside former US Open
champion Simpson, and fellow PGA Tour
campaigners Streb and Piercy.
Streb makes his debut at Sun City on the back of a solid season on the PGA Tour, while Piercy heads into the NGC as a three-time winner on the PGA Tour. Englishman Westwood returns to Sun City hoping to win a third NGC title following his victories in 2010 and 2011.
The South African challenge is bolstered by the inclusion of Oosthuizen and Grace as the country’s young stars in the field. The duo produced a celebrated performance for the International team in the recent Presidents Cup in which they became the first International pairing to win all four matches before the Sunday singles.
