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.
