* - Defending Champion
One of the most lucrative, exclusive events in the world stems from Sun City this week. Luke Donald, defending champion Lee Westwood, Martin Kaymer, Masters winner Charl Schwartzel, Graeme McDowell, K.T. Kim, Open champion Darren Clarke, Jason Dufner, Anders Hansen, Francesco Molinari, Simon Dyson and Robert Karlsson are in the field. Molinari replaced the ailing Thomas Bjorn, who withdrew with a neck injury. The hook of this tournament, aside from playing a beautiful golf course and competing against the best field in the world, is the $5 million in prize money. Last year, Westwood, then ranked No. 1 in the world, cemented his status as the game`s best with a eight-shot victory at the Nedbank Golf Challenge. Tim Clark had the distinction of coming in second miles behind. Golf Channel will broadcast some action. The Dubai World Championship looms for most of this field next week.
