DP World Tour Championship - Tournament Preview

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.

Course: Earth Course, Jumeirah Golf Estates, Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Ryan Fox: Unbelievably consistent player now up to No.23 in the world. Ranks Top 6 in Strokes Gained: Tee To Green, Putting Average, Birdie or Better, Par 5 Scoring, Driving Distance and GIR.

Jordan Smith: Won in Portugal recently but remains underrated. Has strong desert form. Ranks 2nd in Par 5 Scoring, 3rd in Strokes Gained: Tee To Green and 1st in GIR.

Antoine Rozner: Outstanding desert player whose two wins have come in the Middle East. Ranks 3rd in GIR, 10th in Strokes Gained: Approach and 11th in Strokes Gained: Tee To Green.

Adrian Meronk: Pole whose form has been tailing off but has three Top 8 visits in the desert. Ranks Top 10 in Strokes Gained: Putting, Putting Average, Birdie or Better and Par 5 Scoring.
