Fantasy Golf Picks for the DP World Tour Championship:

dp world tour championship picks

Sullivan and McIlroy playing in the final round together last year

GB: Andy Sullivan - The three-time European Tour winner was runner-up here last year and has a 2nd and a T3rd finish in his last three starts.

Ireland: Rory McIlroy - The world number three is by-far the bookies' favourite this week having won the FedEx Cup on the PGA Tour. He won this tournament last year and in 2012, and has won the Race to Dubai three out of the last four years.

Scandinavia: Henrik Stenson - Noren or Stenson? Pick who you wish! I'm going for Stenson - he's won this tournament twice, is the Open Champion and needs to win to guarantee his second Race to Dubai title. Noren also hasn't finished in the top 34 the week after victory this season.

Rest of Europe: Sergio Garcia - The Spaniard came T12th here in 2014, T9th in 2012 and T11th in 2011. He's won on the PGA Tour this year and contended in the US Open - he could be one to watch.

Africa: Branden Grace - The Qatar Masters winner is sixth on the Race to Dubai standings and is coming off of a T3rd finish last week in Sun City.
