This year the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai, will celebrate its 10th edition, as the top 60 in the Race to Dubai Rankings descend on the Middle East.
Each year the Race to Dubai winner is crowned at Jumeirah Golf Estates' Earth Course. Lee Westwood (2009), Rory McIlroy (2012, 2015) and Henrik Stenson (2013) have all won the DP World Tour Championship and gone on to be crowned the Race to Dubai Champion.
The tournament completes the Rolex Series and was won by Jon Rahm in 2017, his second Rolex Series win of the season after triumphing at the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open hosted by the Rory Foundation.
Now celebrating its tenth year, the stage is set for another thrilling conclusion to the Race to Dubai, where the European Tour’s top 60 golfers will be battling it out on the spectacular Earth course at Jumeirah Golf Estates, for a share of the US$8 million prize purse.
The European Tour’s season ending tournament also offers a US$5million Bonus Pool for the Race to Dubai which is divided among the leading 10 players by earnings at the end of the season-long competition spanning 47 tournaments in 27 destinations and across all five continents on the 2018 European Tour International Schedule.
