DP World Tour Championship set for exciting final round showdown


The 11th edition of the season-ending DP World Tour Championship in Dubai is set for an enthralling final day on Sunday.

Spaniard Jon Rahm and Frenchman Mike Lorenzo-Vera are tied at the top of the leaderboard on 15 under par.

Lorenzo-Vera carded another sub 70 round with a three under par 66 but he'll be ruing finding the water on the last before missing a short par putt for the only blemish on his scorecard at Jumeirah Golf Estates.

Rahm put himself in prime position to lift a fourth Rolex Series title at the European Tour’s grand final as well as being crowned the Race to Dubai champion with a sublime six under 66.

The Spaniard carded seven birdies and only one bogey as he nearly replicated the third round seven under par 65 he shot on the way to victory at the tournament in 2017.

Meanwhile, three-time Race to Dubai champion Rory McIlroy is lurking just behind the leaders after carding a spellbinding seven under par 65 left him two shots back.

The Northern Irishman carded five birdies, along with a sensational eagle on the seventh, to put himself in contention for a hattrick of wins at the tournament.

Tommy Fleetwood sits a shot further back in fourth place on 11 under par while Thomas Pieters completes the top five on ten under par. 

The final round gets underway at 7:50 am.
