South Africa’s top 20 golfers

These are South Africa's top 20 golfers in the latest world rankings - after the European Tour's Vic Open, PGA Tour's AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, and Sunshine Tour's RAM Cape Town Open.

It's no surprise to me, however, that at the top of this list is Louis Oosthuizen. Clearly he is a world superstar. This is why perhaps the biggest leap the burly, 37-year-old South African has made is on the Official World Golf Rankings ladder.

He closed the year 2019 ranked 20, but burly two months in the new year the local titan has rocketed five paces to be the world's best 15th golfer.

Here are South Africa's top 20 golfers and their place on the OWGR
