| ||Two-time defending champion Louis Oosthuizen is skipping this event. Last
year, Oosthuizen closed with back-to-back 67s to earn a 2-stroke win over
Tjaart van der Walt. Oosthuizen, who also won this title in 2011, set a new
tournament scoring record in 2012 with his total of 265. That was two strokes
better than the old mark of 267, which Retief Goosen set in 2009.
