Thursday sees the finale of the European golfing year, the DP World Tour Championship – the final event in the Race to Dubai.
There are only 50 players in this week’s field, and obviously any one if them can win this tournament. However, the season-long Race to Dubai has boiled down to just five potential winners. Leading the field is Bernd Wiesberger, with the other options being Tommy Fleetwood, Jon Rahm, Shane Lowry and Matthew Fitzpatrick.
Still, while those five have grander thoughts on their mind, the favourite for this week’s tournament is Rory McIlroy. The world no. 2 has been playing very well for most of this season, with four wins. He’s likely to return to the number one slot soon (especially with Brooks Koepka’s surgery) and this goal could be helped this week.
Rory loves this course – he’s come first or second three times here since 2012. He’s a short price, but we think he’s got a fantastic chance, particularly with his main challengers potentially looking at the bigger picture.
McIlroy is best priced 9/2 to win in Dubai. For those subscribers who want a bit more bang for their buck we also advise doubling Rory with Webb Simpson to win the RSM Classic at Sea Island.
Simpson is the favourite having finished third last season and losing in a playoff in 2011. He came 7th last time out so is obviously in form.
