Bidvest Protea Coin receive a thumbs up from Rory Mcllroy

At the young age of 28 Rory Mcllroy is regarded as the future star of golf and often compared with the likes of Ernie Els, Tiger Woods and many other great players. Indeed 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. We were to ensure that all key figures involved (tournament sponsors and players), as well as the public enjoyed an incident free tournament. At the end of the tournament the event was indeed successfully secured and declared incident free - another positive for Bidvest Protea Coin.

A further highlight of the tournament for Bidvest Protea Coin was when Rory Mcllroy handed over his designer cap to one of our security personnel. This effectively translated as a token of appreciation towards Bidvest Protea Coin and its staff for ensuring a safe sporting environment throughout the tournament.
