Race to Dubai victor Henrik Stenson out of 2017 European Tour finale

And, given that he is playing with new equipment on a Jumeirah Golf Estates course which is not one of his favourites, that two per cent chance of topping the money list could even be somewhat optimistic.

It will take one final big effort for the victor to emerge after a tough season, and then the players can put their feet up for a while: this is the last European Tour event of 2017, with just the co-sanctioned Hong Kong Open, Australian PGA Championship, Mauritius Open and Joburg Open to come.

Defending champion Matt Fitzpatrick is in the field this week after he won this tournament a year ago with a birdie at the 72nd hole.

Final preparations are in place for some of the world's best golfers, ahead of this year's DP World Tour Championship. The wins refused to come, however, until he overcame an eight shot 54-hole deficit to win the World Golf Championship HSBC Champions and, seven days later, a nine shot 36-hole disadvantage to claim the Turkish Airlines Open. "I had some important things that I needed to take care of". "I'm happy finishing second, third or fourth or whatever".

Garcia practiced at the Earth on Tuesday and felt that the course had improved compared to the previous years. "But other than that, it's good", he said about the 7,675-yard Greg Norman layout.

It's all lush green rolling fairways, white sand bunkers (99 in total) and crystal-clear lakes (which patrol the last four holes in particular).

On the three-way race for the Race to Dubai title, Garcia pleaded ignorance about the possibilities. "I'm going to give everything I have, play the best I can, give myself the best opportunity of winning and see where I end up". I can't control what the other people do.

Making up the top 10 in the standings at the moment are; Tommy Fleetwood, Justin Rose, Sergio Garcia, Jon Rahm, Tyrrell Hatton, Ross Fisher, Rafa Cabrera Bello, Alex Noren, Branden Grace and Francesco Molinari.

Not a Sky Sports customer and want to watch the DP World Tour Championship?

The 23-year-old endured a rocky summer but is heading into this week's season-ending event in fine form having picked up his fourth European Tour title at the Omega European Masters in September before going on a consistent run that has seen him finish in the top 15 in each of his six events since the victory in Switzerland.
