Johannesburg, South Africa – 13 February 2014: GAC-sponsored pro golfer George Coetzee is celebrating this week after clinching his first European Tour Title by winning the Joburg Open.

In doing so, the South African rose up the Official World Ranking from No.74 before the tournament to No.66, and secured a spot in the upcoming WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship, in Marana, Arizona, USA later this month.

It bodes well for the 27-year-old from Pretoria, who is expected to move into the top 60 in the world. Coetzee’s Top 3 finish also earned him a place in this year’s British Open at Hoylake.

GAC signed up Coetzee as its Brand Ambassador two years ago, when he was considered one of the rising stars of professional golf, joining other sporting stars including fellow golfers Richard Sterne, Graeme Storm and Chris Wood. Our golfing ambassadors regularly attend and support GAC corporate golf events and appear in international tournaments under the GAC banner.
