5 Million Dollars, that is what the winner could pocket in this weeks tournament. The Seasoning
competition, the Race to Dubai culminates at Jumeirah Golf Estate’s Fire Course this
weekend, which has been its home since 2009. This year will however, be different, there will be
no big crowds, no cheers or claps, no spectators to give such an event the tribute it deserves. 60
players will contest in this great event to crown the European Tour’s top player.
Who will end the 2020 season as Europeans Tour number one. Patrick Reed is favourite to win at
8/1 but I like Viktor Hovland, Colin Morikawa, or our very own Christiaan Bezuidenhout, to come
through on Sunday. Whoever it is, it will be very exciting. This field has many proven and worthy
winners. The tournament gets underway on Thursday 10/12 and finished on Sunday 13/12.
This weekend also sees the QBE shootout in Florida, USA. This is a 3-day team event, played
over 54 holes, not the usual 72 holes. A very exciting format which should lead to some low
scores. I’m hoping to see Louis Oosthuzen and Bubba Watson do well. They will be 6 1/2 to 1,
with favourites, Ancer and Wolff at 6/1
