The 2013 season gets under way with the first of six tournaments to be played in the Rainbow Nation, South Africa. Hosting the first event of the new season is the Royal Durban Golf Club, and it’s a new event too - The Nelson Mandela Championship presented by ISPS Handa. As always ETW will be getting all the latest news from the range on the eve of the event.

As the dust settles on the 2012 season our review this week comes from the season ending DP World Tour Championship, Dubai. ETW brings the best of the action from the Jumeirah Golf Estates, as Rory McIlroy confirmed his status as the best golfer on the planet by winning the last event of the season.

And the two time Major winner had time to reflect with ETW about a triumphant end to the best year of his already impressive career.

Whilst McIlroy enjoys a well deserved break, for those at the other end of the spectrum this week represented the last chance to secure their playing rights for 2013. For those 156 golfers playing at the PGA Catalunya Resort in Girona, Spain, Q School is a nerve-wracking affair and ETW will bring all the news about the winners and losers from this most dramatic of weeks.

Together with all of the latest news and statistics this completes another edition of European Tour Weekly.
