65 – The low score of the week set in the third round by Paul Casey, who jumped to T10

750 – The horsepower of the Volvo FH16 truck that Richard Sterne and Joost Luiten came very close to winning with their efforts on the driveable par four 18th

9 – Nationalities in the top ten following the third round, including 3 South Africans (Louis Oosthuizen, Branden Grace, Charl Schwartzel)

7 – The number of events won by South Africans out of the last 10 tournaments held in South Africa on The European Tour

10 – Eagles on Saturday, including 2 by Julien Quesne in his rollercoaster 66 (the 3rd and 14th holes)
