Australian veteran Marcus Fraser will make just a third trip to the Andalucia Masters Valderrama at Real Club Valderrama, Spain this week.

Just the two trips to the southern tip of Spain for the Aussie and mixed returns: In 2004 he managed T24, but he missed the cut in 2011. He likes tree-lined courses, but clearly has seen little at this layout to prompt him to return on a regular basis. This week he arrives whilst languishing at 146th on the Race to Dubai so has little choice. Two weeks ago he opened 68-68-67 to lie T3 after 54 holes of the Alfred Dunhill Championship, but a final lap 77 saw him manage only T10. At Walton Heath in the British Masters he could manage only T48.

Callum Shinkwin needs something special this week in the Andalucia Masters Valderrama at Real Club Valderrama, Spain.

It's been a tough campaign for the Englishman for whom T8 in the Italian Open is his only top ten finish. Since then he has made only four cuts in 11 starts and arrives fresh off three failures to play all week. Hence a ranking of 123rd on the Race to Dubai and the need for a fine performance to retain his card. He has played the course once before, in the 2016 Open de Espana, but he scraped into the weekend with a pair of 75s and then added 78-79 at the weekend, which is not an effort that screams for inclusion in any selection this week.

Steven Brown will make his course debut in this week's Andalucia Masters Valderrama at Real Club Valderrama, Spain.

The Englishman plays out of Wentworth and it has often been true that specialists at one perform well at the other. That said, Brown shot 80-77 on the West Couse in May at the BMW PGA Championship. He was T2 in the Made in Denmark on a tree-lined track and had a great chance of winning it, eventually losing out in a play-off to an inspired Matt Wallace. Since then he missed four cuts and was then T16 at Walton Heath in last week's British Masters. His card is safe (97th on the Race to Dubai) so he can play a free hand and might be a sneaky outsider for a top ten.

55th on the Race to Dubai, Joakim Lagergren tees it up in the Andalucia Masters Valderrama at Real Club Valderrama, Spain this week.

It's been a funny season for the Swede since his maiden win in May at the Sicilian Open. He followed it with three missed cuts, followed it with four weekends on the bounce, then another four failures to play four rounds, before T29 last week in the British Masters when an opening 68 had him T5 on Thursday night. It was a first sub-70 lap in 12 tries. He often plays tight, tree-lined venues very well (top tens at Royal Golf Dar Es Salam, Carya, Milano, Delhi), but that trend has never been in evidence in two starts at this course. He shot 69-83 in the 2016 Open de Espana and 75-73 in this event last year.

Bradley Dredge will make an 11th appearance in the Andalucia Masters Valderrama at Real Club Valderrama, Spain this week.

The Welshman is right on the cusp of retaining his card, lying 111th on the Race to Dubai, needing to move up at least one spot, but threatening his hopes is a course record which is showing diminishing returns. In his first four starts at the RTJ Sr track he featured in the top ten every time at some stage in the week, recorded his best finish (T3) in debut in 2002 and had a pair of top 20s in 2003 and 2005. Since then? Never inside the top ten at any point in the week and a best of T34 in 2016. T6 in the KLM Open and T16 at the Portugal Masters, he missed the cut in both of the last two weeks.

Richie Ramsay needs a good week in the Andalucia Masters Valderrama at Real Club Valderrama, Spain and has some form there.

A third visit to the RTJ Sr track for the Scot and on both previous occasions he started with sub-70 laps on Thursday. His 65 (T1) in 2011 set him on target for T3, but the 69 (T7) in 2016 could only lead to T29. A worry might be that he still lacks even one sub-70 round on Friday, Saturday or Sunday. He's 124th on the Race to Dubai and one reason is that he is 101st for Driving Accuracy, but he's also 59th for Greens in Regulation so it's not all bad. He's going to need something special to avoid Q School and hasn't had a top three since the Irish Open last summer.

Wade Ormsby saved his card in the Andalucia Masters Valderrama at Real Club Valderrama, Spain last year; this year he doesn't need to.

The Aussie had missed the cut on debut at the Spanish course in 2016, posting 78-80, so must have little reason to think he could pull a card-saving effort out of the bag, but he did just that, going 73-70-67-70 to grab T5. At 33rd in Driving Accuracy he has the tee box game for this course, but 164th for Greens in Regulation is less impressive. The Hong Kong Open champion like tree-lined venues but hasn't made the top ten since the week after that success in China just under 12 months ago.

Jeunghun Wang will make his course debut in the Andalucia Masters Valderrama at Real Club Valderrama, Spain this week.

The Korean has had a downbeat year after a promising T6 in the Dubai Desert Classic. But he was T9 at halfway in the KLM Open and the same position after 18 holes at Walton Heath last week (finishing T29). At 85th on the Race to Dubai he will be sniffing points to make the big money events and at 63rd in the Driving Accuracy tables he has the game from the tee to maybe thrive. More pertinently he has a win on a tight, cork tree-lined, RTJ Sr layout in the form of Royal Golf Dar Es Salam two and a half years ago.
