The top 50 golfers on this year’s European Tour will fight it out this week to claim the final event of the season at the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai, which is worth $2 million to the winner.
For some players, the even bigger prize is winning the 2019 Race to Dubai, the European Tour’s championship, which this tournament often determines.
Traditionally, the European Tour has played a secondary role to the PGA Tour in the United States, where prize money has been higher. While the money on the European Tour has increased, tradition and prestige remain important to many players.
