The 2015 European Tour comes to an end this weekend at the DP World Tour Championships in Dubai.
Thanks to Rory McIlroy’s untimely ankle injury in August, the Race to Dubai has been thrown wide open and there are now a total of seven players that can win.
While the Northern Irishman still leads the standings thanks to his two wins on the circuit, second place Danny Willet came oh so close to edging McIlroy this past weekend at the BMW Masters.
Willett needed only to finish better than 27th to take the Race to Dubai lead, but a final round of 70 in Shanghai left him tied for 28th.
Meanwhile, Justin Rose made a huge gain following his tied for seventh finish. The Englishman has been ever so consistent of late, finishing in the top 13 in his last five events, including a win at the Hong Kong Open.
Also worth a mention is Henrik Stenson. The Swede has a near perfect record at the desert course and will be hunting down a third successive win.
The world number seven has no less than five runner-up finishes for the 2015 season, so he will be itching to finally get his hands on some silverware, even if he can’t win the Race to Dubai.
Patrick Reed could take some attention away from the Europeans this weekend as he is on a fantastic run of form in Asia.
The American has finished tied for third, tied for seventh and second in his last three events in Asia. His sole runner up finish came at last weeks’ BMW Masters.
