British Open champion Morikawa’s chance for an American golfer to be topped No. 1 in Europe for the first time is already great and enters this week’s Dubai final. Jon Rahm withdrew from the DP World Tour Championship at the end of the season, which made it more likely to appear. The British Open fans can buy British Open Tickets from our website.

Collin Morikawa and Billy Horschel Americans who won a major victory in the UK this year-came to Dubai and became the top two players on the European Tour money list for the 2021 season.

Rahm is their closest challenger to them in the Race to Dubai standings, but the world number one has withdrawn because of the “long season requirement”. Only four other players have the opportunity to complete the tournament as the leading players in the tournament. Season-or is formerly known as the winner of the Medal of Merit.

The jobs of Tyrrell Hatton, Min Woo Lee, Matt Fitzpatrick, and Paul Casey have also been laid off. They can’t deny that Morikawa or Horschel won the Dubai championship title. They all need to win, and at the same time. Relying on the two Americans is not close to the top of the standings.

More likely is the duel between Morikawa and Horschel, which may be a historic week for the European Tour in the United States.

For British Open champion Morikawa, this is his second chance after finishing third in Dubai last year but failing to win the championship. The title was won by Lee Westwood. This time Morikawa took first place.

“It’s reassuring to go back to the courses I’ve played before,” Morikawa said.

“Nothing has really changed. My current game feels very good.”

Neither American can be classified as a fixture on the European Tour. In fact, Morikawa has only competed in two tournaments outside of the majors and the US World Golf Championships – the Scottish Open and the Dubai Desert Classic – first ranking.

This didn’t stop the tour from awarding him an honorary life membership on Wednesday, making him the 57th person to receive the award, after Tom Watson, Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, and Patrick Reed, the fifth American.

“I won’t take it lightly,” Morikawa said.

“This is a very powerful list. If you join this team and make history as the first American (to win the money list). I hope it will lay the foundation for an ever-evolving game worldwide.”

In fact, winning the British Open champion at the Royal St George’s Stadium in July took him to number one with 3,856.40 points. This is 236 points more than Horschel. He won this year’s Dell Technology Match Play and BMW PGA Championship. The European Tour’s flagship event at the Wentworth headquarters.

This week’s Earth Stadium winner gets 2,000 points and Hatton is fourth with 2,472.1 points. For example, Hatton must win and need Morikawa to finish third worse than a three-person tie. While Horschel must finish second place worse than a three-person tie.

Lee, Fitzpatrick, and Casey demanded that Americans be lower in the rankings.

For Horschel, presented an opportunity to move him closer to his ultimate goal of being inducted into the Golf Hall of Fame, this week, by the way, his first visit to Dubai.

“Growing up in the United States, all I thought about was winning the PGA Tour. Winning the major, and becoming the PGA Tour Player of the Year,” said Horschel, who was ranked 21st.

“I grew up watching a lot of European Tour records. But I never thought of playing here or achieving my success.

“So in order to stand where I am now. I’ve spent the past few months trying to sit down and imagine the whole thing. Trying to decompress and understand everything that’s ahead of me. I think I might be able to play with it blindfolded,” said the Englishman.

Fitzpatrick is defending champion and won the championship for the second time at Jumeirah Golf Estate last year after 2016.
