2020 South African Open field: Players, rankings



The 2020 South African Open field is set with the passing of the typical Friday entry deadline. The field is set for this event, played at Randpark Golf Club in Johannesburg, South Africa.

The South African Open field is headlined by Louis Oosthuizen and Erik van Rooyen, the only top-50 players in the field.

This is a monster 240-player field in the first European Tour event of calendar 2020. The European Tour co-sanctions the event with the Sunshine Tour of South Africa.

We do not yet have Monday qualifiers for this event. There are 15 Monday qualifiers through three separate tournaments. There are also seven to-be-determined invitees.

The field will be playing for a $1.22 million purse, or 17.5 million Rand.

Historically, this tournament has been played around December or early January. In 2018, the tournament merged with the Joburg Open, another early-year event, to create a monster field.
