Jon Rahm returns to his homeland and is the short-priced favourite to take his national open in a field full of talent and value.
No player profiles better to beat hotpot Jon Rahm than South African Hennie Du Plessis. Du Plessis ranks 6th in Birdie or Better, 6th in Strokes Gained: Tee To Green, 7th in Par 5 Scoring, 7th in Driving Distance and 14th in GIR. Has seven Top 16 finishes in his last 14 tournaments.
There is no player longer off the tee than big-hitting South African Wilco Nienaber. He leads the Tour in Driving Distance. He also ranks 14th in Par 5 Scoring and 19th in Birdie or Better. Mixes form but has two Top 7s in his last eight tournaments and he did finish 6th at his only crack here.
Super-consistent South African Thristan Lawrence is already a winner on Tour this year and only Richard Mansell has been closer to the top of the leaderboard more often this season. Lawrence ranks Top 10 on Tour in Birdie or Better and Par 5 Scoring.
Veteran who finished 17th in 2019 here. His length off the tee will suit with Fisher ranking 20th in Driving Distance. Also ranks 9th in GIR and 13th in Strokes Gained: Tee To Green. Recent form ordinary but this is a course that will suit his game.
