Fleetwood, Rose, Garcia fighting for Race to Dubai title

From FOX Sports - November 13, 2017

The Race to Dubai has reached the home straight, and only three players are still in the running.

Tommy Fleetwood, Justin Rose or Sergio Garcia will be Europes No. 1 player for 2017 after the final event of the season on the European Tour, this weeks DP World Tour Championship in Dubai.

Fleetwood holds the lead by 256,737 points, but knows he will be overtaken if either of his two challengers wins atJumeirahGolf Estates.

As much as it depends on what they do, it is in my hands, said Fleetwood, who has led the Race to Dubai standings for most of the season following his win in Abu Dhabi in January. I can take it out of everybodys hands, but well see. Its great to be in this position.

The Englishman would have clinched the season title by winning the Nedbank Golf Challenge in Sun City last week, but finished in 10th place.

Neither Rose nor Garcia played in South Africa and should be fresher in Dubai, with Fleetwood having played each of the final four events of the European Tours seasonthe WGC-HSBC Champions in Shanghai, the Turkish Airlines Open, the Nedbank and the World Tour Championship.

Thats going to be key this week, especially when you get to Sunday, said Rose, who won in China and Turkey to stay alive in the Race to Dubai. Its a long, grueling raceits a lot on the body and its a lot on the system for the guys.
