Charl Schwartzel and Brandon Stone will be looking for their second European Tour wins of the season when they tee off alongside Brett Rumford in the pick of the of the morning groups at the Tshwane Open.

The trio will start from Pretoria Country Club's tenth hole, at 07.40, with 2011 Masters champion Schwartzel aiming to win the tournament for the first time and add to the Alfred Dunhill Championship title he won in November, and the six other European Tour titles he has previously won in his home country.

Stone meanwhile, who fulfilled his billing as a star of the future by capturing his first European Tour victory at The BMW SA Open hosted by City of Ekurhuleni in January, will also attract plenty of attention from the home galleries.

Teeing off ten minutes earlier will be defending champion George Coetzee, Jaco van Zyl and Matthew Baldwin.

Coetzee, who has started the season promisingly, will be defending this week having won on his home course last year, while Van Zyl featured as one of our five players to watch for 2016, following his impressive season last year.

Four-time European Tour winner David Horsey will have another promising South African youngster for company in Haydn Porteous, who recently won the Joburg Open.

The final man in that threeball will be the experienced Keith Horne, with the trio set to start at 07.50 from the tenth tee.

Elsewhere, Fabrizio Zanotti, Trevor Fisher Jnr and Richard Sterne will start at 12.20 from the first tee, with former Ryder Cup player Edoardo Molinari starting at 07.00 from the tenth alongside Clément Berardo and Jaco Ahlers.
