Rory is the defending #RaceToDubai champion, if he wins this week it’ll be his 3rd #RaceToDubai title in 4 years! He’s obviously a fan of the course, in 6 DP World Tour Championship appearances he’s has five top 5 finishes and never shot a round over par.
2. Henrik Stenson
Henrik will be trying to complete the hattrick this week as winner of the 2013 & 2014 DP World Tour Championships. He’s right at home around the Earth Course at Jumierah Golf Estates and is the current holder of the 72 hole scoring record (-25).
3. Justin Rose
Justin has been in exceptional form recently, winning the UBS Hong Kong Open & finishing T7 in the BMW Masters. He’s also the current course record holder at the Earth Course at Jumierah Golf Estates (62). Justin’s swing coach Sean Foley has made the trip this week from the states, which suggests he means business.
4. Victor Dubuisson
Victor has had a resurgence of form recently, winning the Turkish Airlines Open. He wasn’t exempt to play the following week at the WGC-HSBC Champions but he finished a respectable T17 at the BMW Masters last week. Victor finished 2nd in this event last year.
5. Byeong Hun An
Byeong is the current BMW PGA Champion and is 7th in the #RaceToDubai standings. He’s been in solid form of late finishing 4th Turkish Airlines Open, T19 WGC-HSBC Champions, T3 BMW Masters. He’s a very capable player and handles the pressure of leading the big events well.
