SUN CITY, South Africa — It was the first golf tournament to offer prize money of $1 million, with half of it going to the winner.
Nearly three decades after American Johnny Miller walked away with that check in 1981, the Sun City casino resort in South Africa's North West province continues to attract the stars of world golf — and offer one of the sport's biggest prizes.
It was the Sun City Million Dollar Challenge when Miller won the inaugural event. Now the Nedbank Golf Challenge, the 30th edition has drawn top-ranked Lee Westwood among the 12 players competing for the hefty $1.25 million top prize.
Only the majors and the World Golf Championships have a bigger first-place check.
