At only 28! Rory Mcllroy is regarded as the future of the sport of golf, after the greats such as Ernie Els, Tiger Woods etc. Rory alongside Jordan Spieth and Justin Day, have taken the whole world by storm as the leading swingman of the sport. The 2017 Sunshine Open was bound to be an exciting event as the Irishman teed off at the tournament as one of the headline players, alongside the official player ambassador Ernie Els.
Bidvest Protea Coin as one of the key sponsors of the annual event had the all-important task of ensuring that the event ran smoothly in terms of security organisation. We were to ensure that all key figures involved (tournament sponsors and players), as well as the public enjoyed an event free tournament. The event was successfully secured and declared incident free - another positive for Bidvest Protea Coin.
However, the major highlight of the entire tournament for Bidvest Protea Coin was the moment when Rory Mcllroy handed over his designer cap to one of our security personnel which effectively translated as a token of appreciation to Bidvest Protea Coin for ensuring a safe environment throughout the course of the tournament.
