Highlights from the second round of the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai. I've given myself plenty of chances this year.

Fleetwood needs to win and hope Ryder Cup teammate Molinari finishes worse than fifth to top the European Tour money list, the Race to Dubai, for the second straight season.

Wallace compatriot Danny Willet got another round of 67 for a 134 total to be a stroke back with another Englishman Jordan Smith and Spaniard Adrian Otaegui, the latter two both carding 68s.

Matt Wallace entered the DP World Tour Championship having won three times and earned almost 1.5 million pounds.

The first is that Fleetwood has managed to keep a bogey off either of his scorecards and the second is that Molinari shot a sloppy 73 to drop into a share of 27th place on three-under. I started off great.

"And then I had a really tough two-putt on nine, I had a 40-footer up and over (a ridge) and left myself about 20 feet, so I had to reread it and that took longer than it should have done".

"I have to be pleased", the four-time major victor said. "I just haven't capitalised on those chances". The important thing today was the same goal.

Rory McIlroy, Dean Burmester and Kiradech Aphibarnrat are well poised alongside Fleetwood on eight under.

Having birdied four of his last five holes in the first round to sit handily placed in a tie for fifth overnight, the Moor Park professional continued where he left off yesterday to equal the lowest second round score and move to the top of the leaderboard at the finale to the European Tour season. They then headed to the Media Centre to see where the press conferences take place before walking under the iconic waterfall bridge towards the 18th green, which is where one of this week's collection of stars will be crowned the 2018 DP World Tour Championship victor.

"McIlroy is their favourite but lots of them have also been desperate to see Rahm too after his superb victory here past year".

The best part? Their captain - Thomas Bjorn - played the role of an actual captain and needled them with a walkie talkie from a ship several hundred yards away.

More youngsters from the Junior Academy will be given a tour of the iconic course on Saturday on what promises to be a thrilling day of action on "moving day" of the tenth edition of the DP World Tour Championship with Molinari looking to fend off Fleetwood as he sets his sights on becoming the first Italian to win the Race to Dubai title.
