DURBAN — The preliminary field announced for the third Volvo Golf Champions to be played at Durban Country Club was littered with talent and will include three of the players on Jose Maria Olazabal’s victorious European Ryder Cup team from Medinah.

Nicolas Colsaerts, Francesco Molinari and Paul Lawrie are all confirmed entries, while Olazabal and 2010 Ryder Cup captain Colin Montgomerie are also going to be teeing it up on January 10.
Two-time Ryder Cup vice-captain Thomas Bjorn, former Ryder Cup player Paul Casey and the European Tour’s most recent winner, Peter Hanson, will also be joining these Ryder Cup heroes and look to kick-start their 2013 campaign with a win in Durban.
South Africans Branden Grace, Louis Oosthuizen and Retief Goosen (provided his back recovers) have also accepted their invitations for the event and it is a field that already has a formidable look about it.
