The finale of the DP World Tour takes centre stage of the golfing world this week with the usual venue of Jumeriah Golf Earth Course the host once again. A star-studded field is here with Rory McIlroy, Jon Rahm and US Open champion Matthew Fitzpatrick all coming over. Realistically one of Rory, Ryan Fox or Fitzpatrick will win the overall DP World Tour rankings this year but I think the actual tournament is far more open than that. The earth-course is a great all-round test where there really is no hiding a weak part of your game.

First up of three this week is Shane Lowry. Winner of the BMW PGA Championship back in September which is another all round test on the DP World Tour. The correlation between the winners of these events is also quite interesting, Danny Willett has won them both, Jon Rahm has won them both, Tyrell Hatton has won the BMW and come 2nd in Dubai, so I think we can convince ourselves the course should suit. Further evidence to back this up is Lowry’s 3 Top 10s here from 8 starts, a very solid record. Currently alongside Tommy Fleetwood in the betting, and while Tommy won last week, I can’t help thinking Shane is currently the better golfer and I’d put him on a par with Hovland and Fitzpatrick around that 10/1 mark. All of this leads me to think he’s value at 14/1.

Next up is Alex Noren, another previous BMW PGA winner is coming into this event in good form with a 4th place finish on the PGA tour at the Houston Open last week. His ball striking stats at that event were very impressive, gaining over 9 strokes on the field across the tournament. He hasn’t played this tournament for a few years, but his last trip here resulted in a Top 10 finish and he’s no stranger to winning big DP World Tour events.

Finally, Thriston Lawrence stays on the card from last week. It was a week of what could have been for Lawrence as a first-round 74 and a final-round 76 ruined what was some excellent play in the middle 2 rounds. All of this means I think he’s drifted more than he should have done and while this is a much stronger field than last week, I make him closer to a 70/1 shot than a 100/1 shot.
