This week on Tour it's the second of the three European Tour Finals Series at the Nedbank Golf Challenge at the Gary Player CC in Sun City, South Africa. Marc Leishman won the title last year.
Fantasy Picks for the Nedbank Golf Challenge:
GB: Richard Bland - The Englishman is having the best season of his career and hasn't missed a cut since July at the French Open. Since then he's had four top seven finishes and his worst result has been a T30 at the WGC-HSBC Champions.
Rest of Europe: Martin Kaymer - The German has three top six finishes in his last five starts and won here in 2012.
Scandinavia: Henrik Stenson - The Swede now leads the Race to Dubai with just two events left and won this tournament eight years ago. He also finished runner-up last year and fourth in 2013.
Africa: Branden Grace - The South African is the highest ranked home player in the field and came T4th here last year.
Asia: Thongchai Jaidee - The Thai came ninth here last year and is on a decent run of form. Expect Thongchai to earn you some points this week.
