We all like Fisher's price

The Race To Dubai and The Fedex Cup are now completed and all the players can head into the Nedbank Challenge without stress and with just their Christmas turkey on their minds, they are all guaranteed a fantastic share of a massive purse.

It may be snowing across much of Europe but The Nedbank Challenge is set in the stunning warm resort of Sun City in South Africa. It is played at the Gary Player Country Club and consists of a 12-man field.  The prize is paid out in US dollars and there is just a mere $250,000 for the player that finishes last in the 12 man field.

South African fans will be able to watch their home favourites, Retief Goosen (8/1), Tim Clark (12/1) and the British Open champion Oosthuizen (12/1) play in this stellar field.

Ross Fisher could be a great punt at 9/1 but his problem can be his lack of consistency. In the Dubai World Championship last week, he shared the lead at the halfway stage of the third round but he threw it all away by shooting a 76 in the fourth round.

He will be embarrassed by his failure to take advantage of his position on Saturday evening but will want to put it right. His form of late has been decent and he is excellent value.

The star attraction in Sun City is the new world number one Lee Westwood. It was impossible for him to retain his European crown last week by winning the Race To Dubai as he has spent much of this year struggling with a leg injury.

Westwood (3/1) will be more than satisfied with his current status as world number one and with Kaymer having not taken it at The Dubai World Championship, he can relax at this event and enjoy his golf.

There is a substantial prize on offer but he stated in Dubai that his leg was still giving him grief and although he has been superb of late, he has been disappointed with elements of his play, so I am giving him a wide berth from a punting perspective.

He has missed some short putts of late and the greens are tricky at the Gary Player Country Club. He could well win the event but there is little value at 3/1.

I think 20/1 is a massive price for Edoardo Molinari, he has won the Johnnie Walker Championship this year and the Barclays Scottish Open.

It has been a long but fantastic year for Franceso's brother and it has culminated with him being very average since his Ryder Cup heroics. He is a solid putter and his driving is very accurate, so he could be over-priced for the conditions, if he finds his pre October form.

Although the South Africans have home advantage, it is a quality field and any of these players could make it a December to remember!
