Ryder Cup Stars Set For DP World Tour Championship In Dubai

Ryder Cup stars Matt Fitzpatrick, Tommy Fleetwood, Tyrrell Hatton, Nicolai Højgaard, Viktor Hovland, Shane Lowry, Robert MacIntyre and Sepp Straka are set to tee it up at the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai from November 16-19.

The players formed part of Luke Donald’s triumphant European Team at Marco Simone Golf & Country Club last month and will be joined by teammates Rory McIlroy and Jon Rahm at Jumeirah Golf Estates following the stunning 16 ½ – 11 ½ victory over the U.S Team in the Eternal City.

The Earth Course will once again play host to the top 50 golfers available in the Race to Dubai Rankings in partnership with Rolex, and the one-month countdown began today with Fleetwood on hand to hit a ceremonial tee shot off the first tee ahead of the fifth and final Rolex Series event of the DP World Tour season.

Fleetwood, who secured the Ryder Cup for Europe when he was guaranteed at least half a point in his match against Rickie Fowler, said: “Dubai has a special place in my heart, both as my home away from England and the home to one of my academies.

“I’ve played a number of tournaments here at Jumeirah Golf Estates and I look forward to the 15th edition of the DP World Tour Championship in November. The fans have been unbelievable over the years and it has been amazing to witness it grow over time with all the activities available for kids and families, plus some pretty decent golfers.

“It’s an exciting tournament and I can’t wait to have some of my Ryder Cup teammates here as well, it is going to be another special week.”
