The 28-year-old has 10 Sunshine Tour victories to his name but is still searching for his maiden success on the DP World Tour.

"We are delighted to welcome the Joburg Open as well as the DP World Tour and Sunshine Tour to our historic club," Rottanburg said.
"Houghton is a proud member of the Johannesburg golf community and we are honoured to reflect this by hosting one of the City's premier sports events and a major international golf tournament."
