The Top 50 in the Race to Dubai Standings will battle it out for the season-ending crown at the 11th edition of this prestigious event. Last year, Danny Willett broke a long winless drought when he defeated Matt Wallace and Patrick Reed by two strokes, while Francesco Molinari earned Race to Dubai Champion honors. They are both back this year, and will tee it up against some of the best players in the world. Everyone will be chasing current points leader Bernd Wiesberger, who has three wins since May; those in close pursuit include last week’s winner Tommy Fleetwood, reigning Open Champion Shane Lowry, and two-time DP World Tour Championship winner Rory McIlroy.
Jumeirah Golf Estates’ - Earth course has been the sole host of this amazing golf tournament. This gorgeous Greg Norman-design features parkland-style layout commonly found in Europe, with rolling terrain and several water hazards in play.
PLAYERS TO WATCH
Rory McIlroy: He has an opportunity to join Henrik Stenson as the only players to win the FedEx Cup and Race to Dubai in the same season. Both he and Stenson are the only two-time winners of this tournament, and this is a great opportunity for Rory to double-dip into the record books with a third victory.
Jon Rahm: He won this event in2017, and won his last European Tour start in his native homeland. Don’t be surprised to see Rahm earn a second DP World Tour Championship and cap off a fantastic season in style.
