European Tour reveals changes for 2018 season

European Tour reveals changes for 2018 season”

Off the course, too, things are pretty swell, with Garcia not long married and with a first bambino on the way.

There was a time when being European No. 1 was a big deal.

Sergio Garcia insists he is not out to spoil English celebrations as the European Tour reaches its climax in the Middle East this week.

"I don't even know", he admitted.

Dubai is a tournament that I really want.

Tommy Fleetwood leads the standings and looks to win his first ever Race to Dubai title, with Justin Rose in second, 256,737 points behind.

And if Fleetwood were to close out the Race this week, Fitzpatrick admits it would provide another spur of motivation. So I'm not expecting to finish 40th or 50th. I can live with it.

Whoever is triumphant will follow in the footsteps of the all-time greats of European golf in completing the lengthy, essentially year-long "international schedule" as the top player.

While the PGA Tour Champions is catching flak for its playoff system, one that enabled Kevin Sutherland's sole victory to defeat Bernhard Langer's marvelous seven-win campaign, there won't be any controversy involved with the European Tour's Race to Dubai coronation this week. The DP World Tour Championship takes place on November 16-19. Indeed, that year, like this, he played in 12 European Tour events.

Lee Westwood of England walks with caddie Billy Foster.

The only change a first Race to Dubai trophy would bring is a great year would transition to an "amazing" one. As it stands, a fourth triumph of 2017 would land Garcia the big prize, but only if Rose finishes worse than solo fourth and Fleetwood outside the top 20.

"We felt that needed changing from a player scheduling perspective as well as a purely competitive and level-playing field standpoint". "I'm going to give everything I have, play the best I can, give myself the best opportunity of winning and see where I end up". These can be considered the founding fathers of the modern circuit that came several years later in 1972, when the tall Englishman Peter Oosterhuis secured the second of four successive victories as he dominated in the first half of that decade.

Garcia will be experimenting with Callaway's clubs and ball after the end of his 15-year agreement with Taylormade.

As such, it does not exactly represent ideal preparation for the Earth course, a track the reigning Masters champion has not yet, well, mastered. The Spaniard can draw on decent form at the tournament having never failed to finish outside of the top-25 in six attempts. In fact, his best performance was a share of seventh, way back at the inaugural event, in 2009.

"I guess it's probably not one of my favourite golf courses that we play all year", he said. But it doesn't mean that I shouldn't be able to do well. "I'm excited not only for myself but for them and now there are three good weeks to test it and see how I feel". "But you know, we'll try to make that happen this week".
