We start of course with Rory McIlory who has won the Race to Dubai for the second time in three years. Despite not playing at the Turkish Airlines Open, he takes the Harry Vardon Trophy after neither Sergio Garcia, Marcel Siem, nor Jamie Donaldson were able to win this weekend. McIlroy now has an unassailable lead standing 2.7million above the pack.
Not to be overshadowed by Rory American Brooks Koepka won Turkish airlines open securing his maiden European Tour win, capitalising on Ian Poulter’s nightmare third round, where he dropped a six –shot lead, and was unable to sink a birdie on the 18th that would have forced a playoff.
In Mexico, Christina Kim claimed her first LPGA tour title in nine years. The American was taken to a playoff by China’s in-form Feng Shanshan at the Lorena Ochoa invitational However, Kim rebounded and took the victory on the second extra hole. At the end of play, Kim described the victory as ‘the greatest in her life’.
And finally, Luke Donald has been busy tweeting the perks of professional golf. A series of Instagrams aboard the chartered Turkish airline flight to Dubai for the DP World Championship show the pros indulging themselves before the serious practice starts today.
