Thomas Abt will assume the role of Commissioner of the Sunshine Tour on 1 October.

Current Commissioner, Selwyn Nathan, will remain as Deputy Chairman of the Sunshine Tour and will serve as Executive Director for the duration of the handover to Abt.

Abt was appointed Deputy Commissioner in February 2018 and the announcement forms part of a restructuring of the Tour.

Sunshine Tour Tournament Director, Ludwick Manyama, has been appointed as the new Transformation Manager of the Tour, while Pauli van Meersbergen, Tournament Director on the Sunshine Ladies Tour, has been appointed General Manager of the Sunshine Ladies Tour.

The Sunshine Tour’s leadership sees the departure of Grant Wilson, the Chief Operating Officer, after 17 years, and Theo Manyama, Tournament Director and globally-respected rules official, after 39 years. Both have taken retirement packages.
