This weekend, the European Tour makes its fourth and final stop in South Africa at the Joburg Open in Johannesburg. South African Charl Schwartzel won last year and is a heavy favorite to repeat as champion at 4/1 odds. His nearest competition is expected to come from fellow South Africans Thomas Aiken and Richard Sterne, both at 16/1.

Sterne is another former Joburg Open winner, taking the title in 2008. Oddsmakers rate England’s Danny Willett and Denmark’s Soren Hansen as Europe’s best hope to win in South Africa at 20/1 odds. Willett and Schwartzel are the only two golfers in the 210-man field ranked in the Top 100 of the Official World Golf Rankings.
