Tandi Cuningham


South African golfers have left an indelible mark on the professional mens' circuits around the world. Tandi Cuningham seems to be on a mission to prove that what men can do, women can do � maybe even better. The 22-year-old became an instant star of the game when she beat a classy field to win the South African Open at Parkview Golf Club early this year. Cuningham tore into the Parkview greens with the dominance of a seasoned player when she took an eight-stroke lead into the third and final round. Yet, her victory in the SA Open was her first in only her third appearance as a professional. She has now set her sights on Europe where she hopes to have the same impact. � Phathisani Moyo
