Ernie Els heads Sun City field

Open champion Ernie Els of South Africa heads the field for the Nedbank Challenge to be played at the Gary Player country club at Sun City at the end of November.

The participants for the tournament, which has the richest first prize in professional golf with the winner pocketing $2 million, have been named at a function in Johannesburg.

The field is confined to just 12 players with a total purse of $4.06 million on offer at the invitation-only event. It includes five of the world's top 10 players and 11 of the top 20.

The lowest ranking player is Northern Ireland's Darren Clarke, who is number 22 in the world rankings.

The only newcomers to the tournament are Americans Chris DiMarco and Bob Estes, while defending champion Sergio Garcia of Spain returns.

Els has won the tournament twice while former winners Nick Price of Zimbabwe and Scotland's Colin Montgomerie will also tee off on November 28.

The rest of the field is made up of 2001 U.S. Open champion Retief Goosen (South Africa), Ryder Cup winner Padraig Harrington (Ireland), Michael Campbell (New Zealand), Jim Furyk (United States) and Robert Allenby (Australia).
