Race To Dubai

 

The Race to Dubai is the season long competition that decides the best player on the European Tour. Like it’s PGA Tour equivalent, The FedEx Cup, the Race to Dubai is the top 60 players on the European Tour order of merit that battle out the finals over 3 weeks to decide the eventual winner. The final is held in Dubai at the Jumeirah Golf Estates and at the end will crown the European Tour champion. The last 3 tournaments of the Euro Tour season are some of the richest with the Tukish Airlines Open worth $7,000,000, the Gary Player hosted Sun City Nedbank challenge worth $7,000,000 and the Dubai tournament worth $8,000,000. Only the WGC events and the 4 majors have a bigger purse on the European circuit.

 

The points system is very easy to follow, players get one point for every Euro earned in prizemoney.

FedEx Cup

 

 

The PGA Tour has a season running competition as well. It is called the FedEx Cup. This season long competition ends in the playoff series and eventually in the crowning of the FedEx Cup Champion who receives $10,000,000. The points system is very different from the European Tour. Most PGA Tour events are worth 500 points for the winner and less as the positions go further down. WGC events are worth 550 to the winner and each of the 4 major championships are worth 600. This system is far more difficult to follow as different events are worth different points and even the time of the year they are played changes the points structure. Progressive cuts to the size of the field continue through the playoffs until the last tournament of the year, The Tour Championship, has only the top 30 players competing.
