The European Tour Resumes This Week

Both the PGA Tour and the European Tour start their regular schedules this week. The European Tour kicks off 2018 with the BMW SA Open.

You may not realize it, but the South African Open is the second oldest national Open in the world (1893). It's hosted by the City Ekurhuleni (don't ask me to pronounce that) at Glendower Golf Club, a nearly 7600-yard course at Johannesburg. And the defending champion is Graeme Storm, whose win last year locked up his Tour card.

Rather than repeat a lot of information, let me just link you to a page at europeantour.com called Five Things to Know, which will give you all this info and more.

To be honest, the thing I find most interesting about the tournament (at least, so far) is that Rory McIlroy isn't included in the entry list. Graeme beat Rory in a three-hole playoff last year, and I thought he'd want to see if he couldn't finish one spot better this time.

GC's schedule shows their coverage of this event begins at 2:30am ET on Wednesday morning. It's listed until 9:30am ET then continuing at 11:30am ET after Morning Drive. I don't know if that's all live coverage or not... but it's definitely a bonus for us ET fans.
