Hosted by nine-time major winner Gary Player, the Nedbank Golf Challenge is the highlight of the South African sporting calendar.
Since its inception in 1981, the event has attracted stars from around the world and this year’s edition is no different.
Max Homa and Justin Thomas bring some American representation, while Tommy Fleetwood will look to retain his title.
Meanwhile, Fleetwood’s fellow European Ryder Cup heroes Justin Rose and Robert MacIntyre will play together alongside Qatar Masters champion Sami Valimaki.
Player’s tournament has an esteemed winners list, too, including the likes of Seve Ballesteros, Ernie Els and Sir Nick Faldo.
As the penultimate event before the season-ending DP World Tour Championship, the pressure is on in Sun City to move up the Race to Dubai standings.
So, here is everything you need to know…

The bunkered bet
Jordan Smith 25/1
Smith has long been on the verge of entering the winner’s circle again for a long while now and the Englishman comes to South Africa in good form after finishing fifth in Qatar. He is one of the best-ball strikers on the DP World Tour and his T13 finish here last year is evidence that he can challenge for the title this time around.
