Race to Dubai

golferThe Race to Dubai is an annual golf event which spans the entire season and offers a huge amount of prize money and prestige to competitors as they battle it out in tournaments throughout the year. Many of the world’s top players compete and Rory McIlroy, Henrik Stenson and Luke Donald are among the illustrious list of former winners.

The Race to Dubai 2017 was won by Tommy Fleetwood after an exciting climax at the DP World Tour Championship. The 2017 competition began on 1st December 2016 with a new and exciting schedule. Find out more information on the 2017 tournament.

The race is organised by the PGA European Tour and replaced the Order of Merit in 2009 as a new and exciting way of determining the best player over the whole year. Golfers earn points based on their performances at different competitions and the top 60 qualify for the season finale at the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai.

The overall race can feature up to 50 tournaments, played right across the globe, and attracts international interest, giving fans a great opportunity to follow the sport everywhere it goes, keep track of who is in pole position to qualify and predict how the rest of the season might unfold.
