    Christiaan Bezuidenhout will be one of four South Africans in action at this week’s Wyndham Championship in North Carolina.

    Bezuidenhout failed to make the cut at last week’s PGA Championship at TPC Harding Park and looks set for a big week when the players tee off on Thursday.

    The 25-year-old has been firing hot and cold in recent weeks, with the PGA Tour’s resumption proving quite testing so far for South African golfers.

    But, Bezuidenhout has been showing signs of a consistency and could very well be in contention at Sedgefield Country Club.

    Last year’s Andalucia Masters winner will be part of the afternoon field on Thursday and tee off alongside Luke List and Harry Higgs.

    Charl Schwartzel is also set for an important week at the Wyndham Championship with the glimpses of success that he has shown lately.

    The 2011 Masters champion finished in T58 after a difficult final round at the PGA Championship but managed a top-three spot at the 3M Open a week earlier.

    It was his second top-five finish on the PGA Tour this year and he will be hoping for more of the same over the weekend.

    Schwartzel will tee off in the third group on Thursday alongside Rafa Cabrera Bello and Nick Watney.

    Similarly, Dylan Frittelli also appears to be on the verge of a big win on Tour with the form that he’s been in.

    The effects of Covid-19 hasn’t held him back and a stronger finish over the weekend could reap high reward.

    Frittelli has been paired with Tommy Fleetwood and Jim Furyk for the opening two rounds.

    Branden Grace will also be back in action on the PGA Tour after missing the PGA Championship due to Covid-19.

    Grace got a big scare when he tested positive for coronavirus at the beginning of the month, but has since produced several negative results and is ready to hit the ground running.

    After finishing in T19 at the Charles Schwab Challenge in June, Grace has missed four cuts in his last five appearances, which means a good performance is very much needed for him to get back to his best.

    Grace will tee off with Russell Henley and Anirban Lahiri on Thursday.
