NOTES
Just 25 days after Luke Donald won the 2011 Race to Dubai, the 2012 version begins with the Africa Open. Former British Open champion Louis Oosthuizen walked off with the title 12 months ago and will be on hand to defend his championship. Last year, Oosthuizen birdied the first playoff to trump Alvaro Quiros, who won the 2011 season-ending Dubai World Championship, and Chris Wood. Oosthuizen may have to withdraw during the tournament as his second child is due any day now. Also in the field this week is two-time U.S. Open champion Retief Goosen, who won this title in 2009, and last year`s South African Tour Order of Merit winner Garth Mulroy. Golf Channel has the telecast all four days. Next week is the Joburg Open, which was won by another South African major winner, reigning Masters champion Charl Schwartzel.
