With the DP World Tour Championship looming Justin Rose hopes he is strong enough to become European number 1 for the second time in his career.
He is 214,000 euros behind leader Henrik Stenson but has to finish in the top 5 to have any chance of overtaking the Swede who has been on top form this year.
Graeme McDowell also has a chance of winning the Race To Dubai if he can muster up a victory regardless of where Stenson finishes. You really get the feeling McDowell will be in the mix come Sunday afternoon, he’s just that type of player.
But is Rose is determined to finish the season off on another high to go with his historic major win at Merion back in June.
Rose last won the Order of Merit back in 2007 and feels like it’s his time to shine again.
There’s a lot of money at stake here for a lot of players, which can sometimes bring out the best in them, let’s hope for a terrific week of golf and an exciting finish!
