Gary Player has expressed his hopes for Tommy Fleetwood to win the Nedbank Golf Challenge for the third time in a row, otherwise known as a three-peat.

The Nedbank Golf Challenge will take place from November 9-12 at the Gary Player Country Club, designed by Gary Player himself. Tommy Fleetwood is a two-time defending champion at the 2023 Challenge.

Player and Fleetwood share a friendly relationship, often seen during events like this.

Gary Player recently talked about Tommy Fleetwood on social media. He shared his thoughts on Twitter. He said:

"It was fantastic catching up with our two-time defending Nedbank Golf Challenge champion, Tommy Fleetwood, when he returned the trophy upon his arrival to Sun City."
"Though, I had to throw a jab about South Africa’s victory over England in the Rugby World Cup. It’s always a pleasure to spend time with him as he’s such a gentleman to me and the fans. I’m thrilled this tournament will always hold a special place in his heart. Wishing Tommy the best of luck this week."
"Will he three-peat?"

This Challenge is a big golf tournament in South Africa. This event is also notable because it helps children through the Gary and Vivienne Player Foundation.
