The German has 11 European Tour wins to his name.

Let’s start Fantasy Focus by giving you the bonus transfer code for this week, allowing you one extra transfer: Graem3McDowell – valid until 23:59 on Wednesday


The FedEx Cup play-offs are in full swing, however we’re set for a one week break before the third event. The BMW Championship will begin in Illinois on the 17th, with Jason Day top of the standings.

Martin Kaymer and Tom Watson will both be heading to the European Tour’s KLM Open in Holland this week.

Kaymer, who hasn’t won since his US Open success last year, has lost his PGA Tour card for next season. The German didn’t play at least 15 tournaments in America, meaning his card was always going to be at risk.

Watson hasn’t played on either Tour since missing the cut at The Open in July. He admitted, though, that the lure of the course at Kennemer G&CC was too great to resist.

GM tips for each category this week

USA 1: David Lipsky – The last couple of tournaments have been promising for Lipsky. He finished T14 in Denmark and T22 at the Czech Masters. Another top 20 finish is certainly possible in this form.

USA 2: Peter Uihlein – A solid T17 at the Czech Masters could set the 2010 US Amateur Champion up for a good week in Holland. It will give him confidence if nothing else.

Great Britain: Bradley Dredge – Welshman Dredge has T11 and T6 finishes in his last three tournaments. Will the good form continue in Holland?

Ireland: Damien McGrane – His T8 at the Czech Masters appears to be somewhat of an anomaly when it comes to McGrane’s form. However, it came within the last two weeks, giving him a better chance of rediscovering what made him tick in Prague.

Scandinavia: Rikard Karlberg – You could do a lot worse than select Karlberg this week. He has T13, T14 and ninth place finishes in his last three tournaments.

Rest of Europe: Rafa Cabrera-Bello – A strong period between the Irish and French Opens saw Cabrera-Bello ride a powerful wave. The standout performances for the Spaniard were his second place finish at the Lyoness Open and T4 in Ireland.

Asia: Y.E. Yang – If the 2009 US Open winner’s recent ET results are anything to go by, Y. E. Yang could be looking at a top 20 finish this week. He was T10 and T16 at the Scottish Open and Omega European Masters.

Africa: Hennie Otto – The South African is due a good performance. He finished in a respectable T20 at the BMW International Open, but will be eager to make up for poor results in his three tournaments since.

Australasia: Richard Green – With a couple of top 10 performances in as many tournaments, Green will do well to match those results in a strong field. However, form is very much with him.

South America: Felipe Aguilar – The Chilean’s last ET appearance was in Paul Lawrie’s Match Play, where he finished T33. A T22 at the Scottish Open is the kind of result that makes him seem a strong candidate for another solid week of golf.
