Henrik Stenson and U.S. Open champion Justin Rose have been confirmed in an expanded 30-man field for the Nedbank Golf Challenge in South Africa in December.


Stay on course with this season's pro golf schedules.

Their participation was announced on Thursday by organizers.

FedEx Cup winner and No. 4-ranked Stenson of Sweden, the European Tour's Race to Dubai leader, has played the Nedbank four times and won in 2008. No. 5-ranked Rose of England played last year, finishing 11th out of 12, then won his first major in June.

The Nedbank will have a bigger purse of $6.5 million, with the winner still collecting $1.25 million at the Sun City resort. The Dec. 5-8 tournament has been increased from a 12-man field and will count toward world ranking and Ryder Cup points and the Race to Dubai money list.
