The European Tour heads to Karen Country Club for this week's Magical Kenya Open presented by Absa, which will see the African country host an event on Europe's top tier for the first time. 

We have picked three players you might want to consider for inclusion in your fantasy teams this week.

Favourite - Justin Harding

Last week's Qatar Masters Champion is looking to win back-to-back for the third time in his career this week in Kenya. The South African who will play in the feature TV groups on the opening two days has already won consecutively on both the Asian and Sunshine Tours. Less than 12 months ago Harding was 505th in the world after the Tshwane Open. He enters this week on the verge of the World Top 50 and an invite to The Masters at stake, expect Harding to be in the mix come Sunday. 

Form Horse – Robert MacIntyre 

Arriving to Kenya this week after making nine out of ten cuts, the Scottish Rookie has taken to life on the European Tour. After a fast start last week MacIntyre ranks 16th in greens in regulation this season. With the Karen Country Club course not particularly long and extremely tight in places, driving will be less important this week. Furthermore only three Challenge Tour graduates have a better stroke average this season (71.07).

MacIntyre who still lives at home with his parents in the remote west coast of Scotland, will be finishing up a two-month stretch and is looking forward to some time off at home next week. 

Wildcard - Adri Arnaus

Spanish rookie Arnaus comes into this week ranking 7th in strokes gained tee to green and off the back of a top 15 finish in Qatar. The Karen Country Club is a traditional layout with small landing areas and small greens. This may favour the Spaniard who has statistically ranks high in the putts per green this season (53rd).

Those are our picks. Now it is up to you to decide who you go for. Make sure you pick your fantasy team before play gets under way on Thursday morning.
