Rose eyeing Dubai glory

Home

Justin Rose knows that winning this week's DP World Tour Championship would also see him clinch the Race to Dubai.

The Englishman is eyeing a perfect finish to the season, and hopes to snatch Europe's biggest prize away from current leader Rory McIlroy, who is the favourite in the betting odds for the all-important decider.

Rose is one of seven players who can win the bonus pot for ending up as the earner of the season, but while other players like Danny Willett and McIlroy have various permutations to consider, and could still win the Race to Dubai even if they finish down the field, Rose knows he must win the tournament – a 'simple equation' that is helping him focus.

“For me, it’s a pretty simple equation. I need to go out and pretty much win the tournament and if I do that, it could be a great week,” he said.

“There’s probably more pressure because I have to win, but it’s a much more simple equation.

“Those guys are going to have to keep their eye on one another because there’s a scenario where they could finish 20th and 25th and pick up the Race to Dubai.”
