Patrick Reed and Collin Morikawa are both from the US, do not attend many European Tour events, but are still capable of winning the title brace at the end of the season.

Similar to the FedEx Cup of the PGA Tour, Race to Dubai (RTD) is part of the European Tour which covers the entire season and will close the results at the closing event of the DP World Tour Championship. The winner received the title of Excellent Golfer with three million USD.

In addition to the official European men’s arena events with 38 events this season, Race to Dubai also counts for major events and the World Golf Championship (WGC) group.

In the European Tour, Reed played full-time, and Morikawa received his affiliate membership card in February. He also chooses this method for next year, and will attend the Dubai Desert Classic in January for the time being.

And from the disturbance of the overall schedule due to the epidemic, Reed came first with 1,427.7 points and Morikawa reached 1,881.7 points and closed the top 3 of Race to Dubai. Of the seven scoring events for Reed, Saudi International and the BMW PGA Championship were purely European Tour. The rest, Reed won one of the two WGC tournaments, finishing top 15 in all three major.

Meanwhile, Morikawa is absent from the original calendar of the old continent, the three major paintings and the two WGCs. The major PGA Championship title alone earned him 1,665 points.

If you win the DP World Tour Championship, Reed or Morikawa becomes the first American golfer to hold Race to Dubai. In the case of getting to the crown, Morikawa was the first American player to not compete in European soil, but still held Race to Dubai at the end of the season.

Before the DP World Tour Championship, the only candidate group to win was to win a double of the title, in addition to Reed and Morikawa, there were also Tommy Fleetwood and Lee Westwood – two genuine European players.

“Winning Race to Dubai is an important milestone in my personal career because I want to be a world player. I like to try in many places, many pitches so it will be the first step in the journey,” Morikawa said before match in Dubai.

After 54 holes, Reed stood T1 at -11, alongside Laurie Canter and Matthew Fitzpatrick. Westwood was one stick behind the top. Morikawa and Fleetwood’s doors closed gradually. Morikawa is scoring -5 and Fleewood -4.

At this time, the top 10 currently has three more heavyweight candidates for the double title, but with the simplest conditions are Fitzpatrick, Adri Arnaus and Tyrrell Hatton. Fitzpatrick needs to win the league while Reed, Fleetwood, Morikawa and Westwood finish third or lower. Arnaus must win and Reed finish 18th or worse. Hatton needs to win and Reed is third or lower overall.
