Race to Dubai victor Henrik Stenson out of 2017 European Tour finale

Nedbank Golf Challenge- Day One

Nedbank Golf Challenge- Day One

Garcia not only needs to win, he'll need help from Justin Rose (T-4 or worse) and Tommy Fleetwood (outside the top 20).

The European Tour season concludes this week at the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai and three men are in the running to become Europe's number one.

Matthew Fitzpatrick is thrilled to be back in Dubai on the eve of his DP World Tour Championship title defence, which begins at Jumeirah Golf Estates on Thursday as the Race to Dubai reaches its conclusion at the European Tour's season-ending grand finale.

On the three-way race for the Race to Dubai title, Garcia pleaded ignorance about the possibilities. The wins refused to come, however, until he overcame an eight shot 54-hole deficit to win the World Golf Championship HSBC Champions and, seven days later, a nine shot 36-hole disadvantage to claim the Turkish Airlines Open.

What is changing is Garcia's equipment after his 15-year association with TaylorMade came to an end, with the Spaniard suggesting lucrative deals given to other players was a key factor. The world #19 was 2nd at the WGC-Mexico Championship, 2nd at the Shenzhen International, fourth at the US Open and T6th recently at the Italian Open. I can take it out of everybody's hands but we'll see.

Defending champion Matt Fitzpatrick is in the field this week after he won this tournament a year ago with a birdie at the 72nd hole. Trailing leader Tyrrell Hatton by one stroke as he made his way to the 18th tee, the door opened when he learned that his fellow Englishman, playing in the group ahead, had found the water with his drive up the last.


There was a time when being European No. 1 was a big deal.

The course measures nearly 7,700-yards and the final four holes all feature water - it could be a grandstand finish on Sunday.

But the former Amateur World No. 1 is in no doubt that his 2016 DP World Tour Championship victory stands out above all the rest.

Why not buy a Now TV pass?

Sergio Garcia arrived in Dubai believing he was the third member of two-horse race, so was pleasantly surprised to discover that his hopes of winning his first European Tour order of merit title amount to rather more than "a mathematical chance".

Justin Rose - The Englishman has won his last two events and will be gunning for the Race to Dubai title.
