The Sunshine Boys

The Sunshine Boys is the story of the amazing achievements of South African professional golfers. Edited and written by Dan Retief with contributions from many journalists who have chronicled the game, this book pays tribute to and records the feats of the golfers who made South Africa arguably the world’s most successful golfing nation given its relative lack of numbers and remote location on the globe.
The triumphs of Bobby Locke, Gary Player, Ernie Els, Nick Price, Sally Little, Retief Goosen, Trevor Immelman, Louis Oosthuizen, Charl Schwartzel and the many other excellent golfers emanating from the southern tip of Africa are recorded for posterity while the many feats, failures, fables and foibles will provide amusement and amazement.
South Africa has fewer golfers than many American states yet its players have punched way above their weight:
• 9 Players won 27 Major championships
• 6 Players won 14 Senior Majors
• 125 US PGA Tour titles
• 150 European Tour titles (189 including Zimbabweans)
• 5 World Cups
• 4 Players inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame
• 2 Alfred Dunhill Cups
