Stone has high hopes for Open

“At Erin Hills I managed this side of it really well. I treated it the same as any normal week on tour. I stayed in a normal hotel room, got there on the Monday and did my prep correctly. Basically I made sure not to skip any of the normal processes that have got me the success in the past. I was very target orientated and focused on what I was trying to achieve. I was very deliberate in the process and had a very steady week.”

Stone will join fellow Sun International ambassador Louis Oosthuizen in a contingent of nine South Africans hoping to end the country’s Major drought, which stretches back to Ernie Els’s triumph in the 2012 Open.
