Frittelli embraces favourite tag at SA Open

Cape Town - Dylan Frittelli said he will embrace the favourite tag leading up to this week's South African Open at Randpark Golf Club.

Randpark's two golf courses, Firethorn and Bushwillow, will play host to 240 golfers, who will compete for a minimum of R17.5 million in prize money.

Frittelli, who finished T5 at this past weekend's AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open, understands that this year will not be easy with the increased field.

"It kind of sucks that there are 240 guys playing in it, this time it's going to be tougher to win.

Adding to the strength of the field this week are home heroes Ernie Els, Trevor Immelman, Louis Oosthuizen and Charl Schwartzel, who have all reached the pinnacle of the sport by winning Major titles.

England's Chris Paisley is the defending champion, winning the last SA Open at Glendower GC in January this year.
