Rickie Fowler will make his first start of the new year as he preps for this week's Farmers Insurance Open in San Diego, California.

Fowler has plenty of success at this week's venue but none in recent editions. He started his Farmers career with finishes of T5, T20, T13, and T6. Since then, he's missed the cut in four of his last five with the lone cut made going for a T61. He's done all that with a different schedule in the lead-up. Sometimes playing in Abu Dhabi right before. Sometimes warming up at Kapalua. His short-term course history might deter some gamers from drafting him this week but overall he still presents himself as a top tier pick, anytime he pegs it. Fowler ended 2018 with top 20s in 12 of his last 13 OWGR eligible events. It shouldn't take him too long to get back into the groove.

Erik Van Rooyen returned to action in last week's Abu Dhabi Championship and stays in the United Arab Emirates for the Omega Dubai Desert Classic.

The South African enjoyed a strong first full season on the European Tour in 2018, finishing 38th on the Race to Dubai after three top fives and two further top tens. He was also T17 at The Open. He's played twice this season, with T26 at his home Alfred Dunhill Championship and a solid T32 in Abu Dhabi on Sunday. Van Rooyen revealed himself to be a lover of links golf last season (T4 Irish Open) and this event has correlated well with The Open Championship so he could be a decent option on his course debut this week. Finishes of 17-26-32 in the UAE add to that feeling.

Sean Crocker will look to bank some more Race to Dubai points after getting an invite to this week's Dubai Desert Classic.

The American, who decided to take the Brooks Koepka route by playing on the Challenge Tour last year, secured his European Tour card for 2019 by finishing inside the top 15 on the second tier's money list. Beaten by eventual champion Bryson DeChambeau in the semis of the 2015 US Amateur, Crocker has already played five times on this season's RTD. He's only 2-for-5 but has taken T9 at the Australian PGA and T18 in the Alfred Dunhill Championship in South Africa. He missed the cut in Abu Dhabi last week and also in last year's Dubai Desert Classic (69-71) but did show up well in the region when securing a fifth place in the Challenge Tour Grand Final last year.

Emirates GC has been good to Bradley Dredge down the years and he returns to the United Arab Emirates course again this week to contest his 16th Omega Dubai Desert Classic.

Dredge has finished in the top ten just once but extend the search to top 20s and the Welshman has racked up no less than nine of them. The latest came when T18 in 2016 while he made the cut for the 14th time out of 15 on his last visit two years ago. Dredge just managed to retain his card last year after finishing 110th on the Race to Dubai and this could be a good opportunity to bank some early points. He made his first start of the new 2019 season in Abu Dhabi last week and, despite a bright first 36 holes (70-68), had to settle for T54. This will be his 465th start on the European Tour.

Colin Montgomerie is one of the stellar names to have won the Dubai Desert Classic and he returns to Emirates GC this week to try his luck alongside some of his former European Tour rivals.

Monty's last 11 starts have come on the Champions Tour and, despite some consistent results, he hadn't managed a top ten in that sequence until T7 in last week's Mitsubishi Electric Championship in Hawaii. The obvious question for gamers here is whether he can still compete at this level. Despite a strong record in the event, including a victory in 1996, the 55-year-old Scot is just 2-for-6 since 2010 although he may be encouraged to see a course where accuracy should be rewarded more this year due to some of the landing areas on the fairways being narrowed. Monty missed the cut here last year when playing the event for the first time since 2014 although he did shoot 69 in round two. Had he been burning it up at Seniors level, confidence would be higher than he could tee it up in all four rounds this time.

Sergio Garcia lifted the trophy in 2017 and will bid for more success when he returns to the Dubai Desert Classic this week.

While piecing together four straight top 20s from 2008 to 2013, Garcia had never managed a top ten in six appearances when pegging it up at Emirates GC two years ago. He put that right in style by shooting 65-67-68-69 to take first prize and three months later ended his long wait for a first major by landing The Masters. Sergio had to settle for T32 when defending last year but he arrives this time having connected six worldwide top tens. The latest came via T7 in last week's Singapore Open on the Asian PGA Tour so that should have taken some rust off. Reports this week that the course is firm and the rough longer than usual could play into Sergio's hands a little so he's definitely worth a close look when pondering the front end of the market.

Victor Perez will make his debut in the Omega Dubai Desert Classic at the Emirates GC, U.A.E. this week.

In one sense Perez has been going backwards ever since he reached the European Tour: His results read T3-T14-T42-T54. Whilst that will be a worry the fields have more or less improved in strength through that period so it’s not so bad as it looks. However it’s a results business so he’ll want to address it sooner or later. What does stand out is that he drives the ball well. Three times (including last week) he has ranked top four for Total Driving, in Hong Kong he topped the Ball-striking stats and in Mauritius he was third. He had a wild week in Abu Dhabi (75-65-75-69), but those good rounds hinted at a fondness for the U.A.E. which was first revealed when he finished T2 and T7 there on the Challenge Tour.

Tommy Fleetwood is seeking a first career top five finish in the Omega Dubai Desert Classic at the Emirates GC this week.

Last year the Englishman ranked first for Total Driving, Total Accuracy, Ball-striking and All-round game as he finished T6. He was also second for All-round and first for Total Driving when T10 at the course in 2013. But in his other five visits to the Karl Litten-designed track he has failed to finish better than T47 and never ranked better than 50th for All-round. Seems it either goes really well for him here or pretty badly and he has had his struggles in round one, only once being closer than five swings off the lead. Finished T42 last week in Abu Dhabi when seeking the three-peat, but there was little wrong with his long game as he ranked first for Total Driving and Ball-striking.
