Nicole Garcia Leads at Sun PinkStig Series

Nicole Garcia will start day two with two shots ahead of Nobuhle Dlamini, Tandi McCallum and Ivanna Samu at the Sun PinkStig Series taking place at Parkview Golf Club.

It was a record breaking turn out for the Pro-Am with Sun International, Maserati, Srixon and JetPatcher throwing their full weight behind South Africa’s women’s professional golf.

Sports icons such as Gareth SoldierBoy Mclellan, Shaun Bartlett, Gavin Hunt, Chris Morris, Alwyn Hollenbach, Albie Morkel, Matthew Booth, Heino Kuhn, Clinton Peters, Arno Jordaan as well as messages sent to the players came from all around South Africa.

The PinkStig Cubs also played their part with the 11 am start and playing the 18th hole as the official start of the Sun PinkStig Series, with family, friends and pro players walking alongside the cubs.

This innovation, which is the first of its kind at any professional women’s golf event is part of UniMedia’s strategy of creating impressions in the mind of the young aspiring golfing cubs to realize that there is a career as a pro woman golfer in South Africa and in the same spirit for the professional golfers to guide and encourage the cubs to play to their full potential. The day belonged to the pros and amateur golfers who came out knowing that they would be part of an historic event with the live streaming of the last two hours of the day’s play and VR ( virtual reality streaming) all made possible by Bladeworks Post Production and Bottomside Studios and Drone shots of several holes around the course provided by Adriaan van Jaarsvelt.

The day was filled with great golf, new friendships forged and introducing an array of technologies to enhance the picture of women’s professional golf. Today all the attention will be on the women professional golfers at their play for their spot at Sun City for the finale 4th – 6th December and also for their portion of the prize money of R100 000. The Sun City finale will have a purse of R250 000 and 6 more tournaments scheduled for 2018 after the Sunshine Ladies Tour season taking place from January to March 2018.
