Stenson’s dream European season has yielded two wins, including that breakthrough major success at the Open Championship, two second places, an Olympic silver medal and four further top 10 results. Given the Swede has won two of the three DP World Tour Championships, including the inaugural event in 2013 when he also secured the Race to Dubai title, he’s a deserving favourite to take home the $1.5 million. And considering Willett appears physically and mentally fried, having said openly that he’d prefer to put his cue in the rack rather than contest the rest of the Race to Dubai, the odds are tipped further in Stenson’s favour. FedEx Cup winner Rory McIlroy loomed as potentially the only realistic threat, currently sitting in third position on the order of merit, more than a million points back. But the Northern Irishman won’t be playing in Sun City this week, which all but gifts the overall title to Stenson or Willett, barring some sort of disaster.
