ENMORE Park's European Tour Professional David Dixon takes his place in the South African Open this week knowing it is his final chance to avoid a return to the Tour Qualifying School.

He tees up in the event at the Serengeti Golf Club knowing that only a win is good enough save him from that trip to Spain the following week to attempt to regain his spot on the main Tour.

After a somewhat disappointing season that has never really got going for Dixon he travels to South Africa in a positive frame of mind after putting in some hard graft with his management team and coach since his last Tour start, which was close to two months ago.

He hopes that, if the win doesn't come his way, a good performance will send him to Tour School knowing he is more than capable of repeating his superb win over the gruelling 6 round event last year.
