As the European Tour moves to South Africa for the penultimate event of the season - we take a look at who could perform well this week. Not only is the Nedbank Challenge starting, we also have the Race to Dubai ongoing and it could be decided this week. If Henrik Stenson wins and Danny Willett finishes outside the top 10, Stenson will win the Race to Dubai for the 2nd time in 4 years.

Henrik Stenson Race to Dubai leader, Open Champion...... Stenson has had another fantastic season; he can win R2D this week and is rightly the favourite to win in South Africa. The Swede finished T2 at WGC-HSBC in China, and finished nothing worse than T13 in his last 5 European Tour events. To strengthen his case, he was 2nd last year here and 4th in 2013. To win 7/2 with bet 365

Thongchai Jaidee Despite a poor final round in Turkey, Jaidee is in a decent run of results without setting the world on fire. But something he has is history at Gary Player CC. 2015 – 9th, 2014 – 7th, 2013 – 9th. Top 10 finish 4/1 with Ladbrokes

George Coetzee South African who has played this course on numerous occasions: A solid T5 last week in Turkey strengthens his chances this week, showing a bit of form. Outside bet here. Top 5 – 12/1 with Coral

Ross Fisher On the back of a T6 in China, Fisher is finishing the season strongly. He is 16th in R2D rankings and very close to the lucrative top 10 places in which additional prize money (£5m) is split. 15th last season at Gary Player CC, but a 2nd place in 2014 suggests the Englishman knows his way around. To win 22/1 with BET BRIGHT

Branden Grace Back on home soil after a fantastic performance in two of this year’s majors T4 at USPGA and T5 at US Open show the South African is starting to perform on the big stage, He will look to finish this season as he ended 2015 including T4 at Nedbank. Grace is in 10th place on R2D rankings and now up to 15th in the world, look out for a strong week To win 28/1 with BETBRIGHT
