Jeunghun Wang’s dramatic three-way play-off victory at the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters propelled the 21-year-old from 40th to second in the European Tour Race to Dubai rankings after claiming 398,657 points to increase his season tally to 436,151.

The Korean made his debut in last year’s season-ending DP World Tour Championship at Jumeirah Golf Estates, finishing tied 17th before being named European Tour Rookie of the Year having secured back to back victories in the AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open and the Trophée Hassan II and his victory in Qatar puts him firmly on course for a return to the event, open only to the top 60 ranked players, this November.

In windy conditions overnight leader Wang carded a one-under 71 at the Doha Golf Club which meant the tournament was to be decided in a play-off against South Africa’s Jaco Van Zyl and Sweden’s Joakim Lagergren. Wang sunk a birdie on the first extra hole to clinch the title.

“We congratulate Jeunghun Wang on a terrific performance in Doha,” said Nick Tarratt, Director European Tour International Dubai Office. “He’s proven himself to be one of the fastest rising young stars on the European Tour and we hope to welcome him back to Jumeirah Golf Estates later this year.

Van Zyl and Lagergren each won 203,063 points after sharing second, which helped Lagergren climb to 10th in the Race to Dubai ranking while Van Zyl moved from 38th to sixth.

Aiken shared fourth with Lorenzo-Vera as they each gained 108,015, with Aiken rising from 12th to ninth and Lorenzo Vera catapulted into 10th.

Spain’s Rafa Cabrera Bello finished tied-sixth with compatriot Nacho Elvira and England’s Jordan Smith. They each claimed 70,139 which resulted in Cabrera Bello solidifying his fourth place position in the Race to Dubai rankings, while last year’s Road to Oman champion Smith moved from 16th to 13th and Elvira catapulted from 73rd to 24th.

This week is the Omega Dubai Desert Classic held at Emirates Golf Club, Week 7 of the 2017 Race to Dubai.

All the leading players on the rankings are participating in addition to Tiger Woods who continues to make his comeback from injury.

The 2017 DP World Tour Championship takes place at Jumeirah Golf Estates from Thursday 16 to Sunday 19 November.

January 23, 2017, Dubai: Tommy Fleetwood’s stunning victory in the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship saw the Englishman sore to the summit of the Race to Dubai after claiming 421,139 points to up his season tally to 526,481 meaning he has now all but assured his place in the season-ending DP World Tour Championship, Dubai, at Jumeirah Golf Estates with almost 10 months of the season still remaining.

Following up his tied-third finish in the UBS Hong Kong Open, Fleetwood continued his terrific early season form in the UAE’s capital to beat America’s Dustin Johnson and Spain’s Pablo Larrazabal, who won the event in 2014, by one stroke at 17 under par 271. His final round 67 included four birdies and an eagle which spurred him on to his first victory in three years. Thailand’s Kiradech Aphibarnrat, Bernd Wiesberger of Austria and Germany’s Martin Kaymer all finished two strokes behind the champion.

The 26-year-old, who topped the Challenge Tour’s Road to Oman Rankings in 2011, will compete in this week’s Commercial Bank Qatar Masters and the Omega Dubai Desert Classic the following week at Emirates Golf Club to complete the Desert Swing while his expected return to Dubai in November for the European Tour’s season-ending grand finale will mark his fifth DP World Tour Championship appearance as he looks to better his career-high finish of ninth from 2016.

“We are delighted to see Tommy back on the winner’s podium and wish him the best of luck in the remaining Desert Swing events,” said Nick Tarratt, Director European Tour International Dubai Office. “His performance in Abu Dhabi was outstanding and we look forward to welcoming him back to Jumeriah Golf Estates along with the rest of the Race to Dubai’s top 60 in November.”

Larrazabal’s shared runner-up finish gained him 219,470 points, which propelled him from 20th to third in the Race to Dubai rankings while Kaymer, Aphibarnrat and Wiesberger all gained 107,306 points for their tied fourth place finish. They share 13th place in the Race to Dubai standings.

Russia’s Dean Burmester sealed seventh place to claim 75,805 points which has helped him climb from 15th to ninth as the season gets into full swing.

The 2017 DP World Tour Championship, Dubai takes place at Jumeirah Golf Estates from Thursday 16 to Sunday 19 November.
