2013 DP World Tour Championship: Leaderboard

Henrik Stenson 595

IT IS CRUNCH TIME for the 2013 European Tour with the season-ending DP World Tour Championship taking place in Dubai.

The top 60 players in The Race to Dubai are battling it out at the Jumeirah Golf Estates for a prize fund of US$8,000,000.

Henrik Stenson led The Race to Dubai coming into the event and hopes to be the first player ever to win both that points race in Europe and the FedEx Cup on the other side of Atlantic in the same season.

Stenson, who won two of the US PGA Tour’s last three events to seal the FedEx cup, goes into the event with a lead of 213,468 points over Justin Rose.

The Swedish world number three needs a win to guarantee his position as European Number One.

“It’s always one of the things that I would have liked to achieve in golf in Europe, and growing up on The European Tour and playing here for many, many years, it would mean a lot to be the overall winner of The Race to Dubai,” said Stenson.

“To be able to have a chance to do it together with winning the FedEx Cup is probably something I’m not going to have a chance to do again, and it’s going to be hard for some of the other guys to have a chance to do it, as well.

“It’s one of those that I really want it, but if you want something too much, that’s going to make some trouble for you normally. It doesn’t take Einstein to figure out that I want that to happen, but I have to put that aside and focus on playing the best I can with my circumstances and my game for this week – we’ll see where that takes us.”

Stenson has been battling an ongoing wrist problem throughout the Final Series and rested for a couple of days prior to the event.

Australia’s representatives in Dubai are Marcus Fraser and Brett Rumford with the field including the likes of Rory McIlroy, Lee Westood, Graeme McDowell, Luke Donald, Martin Kaymer and Louis Oosthuizen.
