The DP World Tour Championship comes to its finale this week on the The Greg Norman-designed Earth Course which was specifically built to be the venue for the European Tour's season finale.
The course features wide fairways and minimal tree trouble. The par-five 18th has a stream which splits the fairway in two and come cause a few issues on the run home! The greens are large, undulating, and quick, with plenty of run-off areas. Given the shortage of trees and wide fairways we’re looking towards the big hitters this week and greens in regulation.Date: 17-20 November, 2022
