I would consider Matthew Fitzpatrick to have close to a perfect game for this course. He is a total all rounder as he impresses from tee to green which is necessary here in Sun City. His last six performances read 11-9-15-15-11-WIN. He is in solid nick and Tyrrell Hatton aside has the best form in the field. In his two appearances here he has posted two top 20 finishes. As ever I am reluctant to get too involved with him pre tournament as it appears to me a good/bad performance depends upon his attitude. He often throws tantrums on the course and unlike Hatton he hasn't yet been tagged for that behaviour. Nevertheless his class is way beyond most and big wins are in his nature. This could be another notch on his post. For those awake when he tees off I'd happily take a few pts shorter should he start well. I may leave some of my stake until then also.
 
M Fitzpatrick - 2pts @ 20/1

The season is a few weeks away from closure and the race to Dubai is hotting up as Fleetwood and Rose go to head to head for the coveted crown. Fleetwood tees it up this week in Sun City where he can gain a significant advantage on Rose heading to the Earth Course. It will be touch and go right to the end I'd say and the final event in Dubai next week will be a super watch for many reasons. This week we have an open enough event with Hatton taking up uneasy favouritism at 14/1. Closely followed by the two South Africans Grace and Oosthuizen, who I personally believe should both be a few pts bigger in the market. Neither of the top 3 appeal to me and I'll be looking elsewhere.

Peter Uihein polished off another top 15 finish last week and despite never really getting into main contention over the weekend he can be proud of his efforts. Indeed this is a solid run for the American and I don't think he is far off notching a win and then we'll listen to the reason why (His mate Koepka won the US Open) he won. Apart from that nonsense, I do think he is close. The Gary Player course in Sun City is a proper test of an all round game. Long game must be in solid nick to steer clear of the thick kikuyu and the putter must be hot also. It definitely is tough to pinpoint a certain strength needed to win here without thinking of another aspect you must need. Driving is probably the most important as the game becomes very tough from these awkward lies in this part of the world. Overall Uihlein showed he could mix it with the best when he was runner up in Paris in the summer. That course is probably similar to this in that all aspects of your game are tested and you can't contend without having all parts in working order. Uihlein has posted a top ten here in his only appearance back in 2013 and with three tops 15 finishes on the trot the past month he must be a likely contender.

I'll finish with one smaller bet. Victor Dubuisson put 4 rounds together last week and personally I think bookies have forgotten all too easily how he played only a few weeks ago in the Alfred Dunhill. He absolutely caught fire on that Sunday to come right through the field and threaten the top of the leaderboard. We all know he is a difficult character and an even dodgier one to throw some of your cash on so as ever we will tread with caution as far as Victor goes. His last three visits here read 3-4-20 so he clearly has a liking for the joint.
