|Lee Westwood (each way) - WON Best Bet||40/1|
|Darren Fichardt (each way) - Tied 9th||125/1|
Rory McIlroy is a short-priced favourite for only his second ever appearance at the Nedbank Golf Challenge - after he withdrew in 2009 - and he faces stiff competition for Sergio Garcia, who won last time out and has a fine record at Sun City - where he has finished no worse than 12th in his last seven appearances, winning in 2003 and picking up four other top-seven finishes.
Lee Westwood is an interesting punt at 40/1 with Betway. The Englishman doesn't win often enough nowadays but he warrants each-way attention as he won the Nedbank back-to-back in 2010 and 2011, and he has four other top-six finishes from six visits to Sun City. Westwood has been in good form of late too, tying for 2nd in Denmark and tying 5th at Valderrama recently.
Meanwhile, Darren Fichardt is a very tempting long shot at 125/1 with William Hill. The South African has won seven titles in the past nine years, including the Tour Championship in his homeland earlier this year. He has picked up four other top-tens in 2018 and will relish a return to Sun City as he finished 12th there in 2013 before taking a share of 6th in 2017.
