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

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

In its ninth year, this tournament is the final stop of the European Tour calendar where players are vying for the championship title, as well as the Race to Dubai crown.

"The putt was the worst one, I could see my hands physically shaking when I was taking the putter back so it was nice to hole it and a great way to win the tournament".

And, it did turn out to be a good year so far for the Spaniard. "It's been a wonderful year". Fitzpatrick claimed the biggest title of his career in dramatic fashion in Dubai a year ago.

Victory this week would see Fleetwood open up an unassailable lead over nearest challenger Justin Rose ahead of the season-ending World Tour Championship in Dubai, with the latter choosing not to compete in South Africa following his back-to-back wins at the WGC-HSBC Champions and Turkish Airlines Open.

"Winning The Race to Dubai is great, but I'm not going to change my whole life for it", Garcia added.

"I'm not going to change the way I go out there", Garcia told a pre-tournament press conference. "I'm happy finishing second, third, fourth or wherever I finish at the end of the week".

It's all lush green rolling fairways, white sand bunkers (99 in total) and crystal-clear lakes (which patrol the last four holes in particular).

"Never in a million years would I have expected what I've done this year", said Rahm, who joins the likes of Nick Faldo, Jose Maria Olazabal, Sandy Lyle, Colin Montgomerie,
Garcia and Martin Kaymer in claiming the accolade. It was designed by Greg Norman, who has identified European parkland courses as his inspiration, which is perhaps why the elite-level players have taken to the layout very nicely.

Sergio Garcia can also seal his first Race to Dubai title but is over a million points behind.

"I don't even know", he admitted. "What I'm going to do, I'm not going to change the way I go out there".

"I sat down with my team and had a discussion about what was going on in my game and figured out that I needed to drive it better and that's made a massive difference", said Fitzpatrick. "I can't control what the other people do and obviously both Tommy and Justin are playing really well". "I'm not expecting them (Fleetwood and Rose) to finish 40th or 50th but I'm fine with it". I can live with it.
