The 2011 golf season begins next week with as many major champions at the Africa Open as the Hyundai Tournament of Champions on Maui -- one each.
British Open champion Louis Oosthuizen had booked a room at Kapalua to begin his PGA Tour season, until deciding the travel might be too much so early in the season. Instead, he will play in the Africa Open in his native South Africa.
The Africa Open field also features defending champion Retief Goosen and Charl Schwartzel.
