4 Gold Rolex Series Bibs in Nedbank Golf Challenge Field

For the 2017 season, the European Tour created what is called the Rolex Series – a grouping eight high-profile events in a season-long series, culminating with three consecutive contests to anoint the Race to Dubai winner.

These elite events offer larger purses and are contested at the Tour’s more historical venues and iconic destinations. To promote the importance of the series, the winner’s caddie wears a gold bib at all Rolex events, signifying that the player is a reigning Series tournament champion.

To date, there have been six gold bibs handed out, and four of them are in the field at Gary Player Country Club.
