Mulroy set for another title bid at Dunhill 11-24-2015
Garth Mulroy
Garth Mulroy won the 2011 Alfred Dunhill Championship and is back at Leopard Creek for another crack this week.

His two-shot victory four years ago started a streak of home dominance and South African golfers have now won the last four editions. Mulroy finished third when defending the title in 2012 while he also posted T12 in 2009 so is clearly one to watch at this venue. He recorded a top 10 in the European Tour's Portugal Masters last month while his latest finish is a T8 in the Cape Town Open so he'll head to Leopard Creek in good form.
Dunne starts rookie season at Leopard Creek 11-24-2015
Paul Dunne
After coming through Q School earlier this month, Paul Dunne heads to South Africa to contest the season-opening Alfred Dunhill Championship.

The Irishman had to navigate all three stages (14 rounds) to secure his European Tour card, ending that gruelling process by shooting a 72 in the final lap at Cataluyna Resort to finish T13. Of course, he's already made waves in 2015 after taking the 54-hole lead at the Open Championship at St. Andrews when still an amateur. Dunne eventually slid to T30 after a closing 78 while he later posted top 25s in the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship and British Masters. This is his first start in any pro event on South African soil.
Johnston starts 2016 campaign in South Africa 11-24-2015
Andrew Johnston
Andrew Johnston took third place in last year's Alfred Dunhill Championship and returns to Leopard Creek in South Africa for this week's renewal.

That flying start set the tone for a solid rookie season in which the Englishman parked up at 70th on the final Race to Dubai. His biggest cheque actually came in his final event via a 10th spot in the Turkish Airlines Open earlier this month so the planets could be aligned for Johnston this week. He also contested the 2010 Alfred Dunhill Championship back in 2010 but missed the cut although that has minimal relevance given his performance 12 months ago.
Bland ready for 2016 opener at Leopard Creek 11-24-2015
Richard Bland
After finishing 73rd on the 2015 Race to Dubai, Richard Bland heads to the Alfred Dunhill Championship in South Africa for the opening event of the 2016 season.

Bland has contested this tournament five times previously and it's fair to say his results fall into the feast or famine category. He missed the cut in 2004, 2009 and 2010 but, on the two times he did make it to the weekend, Bland cracked the top 10 in 2007 and 2012. The Englishman was also T5 in the 2014 Africa Open so has some good results in this part of the world. He wrapped up his 2015 season by connecting three top 25s, the most recent a T16 in the Turkish Airlines Open.
Pepperell set for Alfred Dunhill Championship 11-24-2015
Eddie Pepperell
Eddie Pepperell makes his way to Leopard Creek in South Africa to take part in the first event of the 2016 European Tour schedule.

The Alfred Dunhill Championship is the first of 46 tournaments and Pepperell will look to bank some early points. The Englishman finished 49th on the Race to Dubai for the second straight season following his T58 in Dubai last week although he made four less starts this time. He'll be teeking it up at Leopard Creek for the third time. Pepperell posted T30 on debut in 2012 but missed the cut on his only other appearance in 2013.
