South Africa’s top golfers will be up against several Ryder Cup stars at the highly lucrative CJ Cup on the U.S. PGA Tour in Nevada this week.

This tournament at the Summit Club in Las Vegas boasts a prize fund of $9,75 million, but there are also decent offerings for other South African players at home on the Sunshine Tour and in Spain on the European Tour simultaneously.

The CJ Cup’s field is limited to the top 60 from last season’s FedExCup points list on the PGA Tour, plus there are a number of sponsor exemptions and eight men from the Korean PGA in a special arrangement.
