The DP World Tour Championship Dubai brings the 2018 European Tour to a close this week when the event is once again played at the Jumeirah Golf Estates in Dubai.

The US$8.5 million event involves the leading 60 eligible players from the season long Race to Dubai list, two of those being Australians Lucas Herbert and Wade Ormsby.

Herbert is about to complete his first season in Europe having begun the year without any status at all and played his way into the season ending event in 42nd place.

A runner-up effort at the Portugal Masters and 3rd place finishes at the Sky Sports British Masters, the Sicilian Open and the World Super 6 Perth the highlight of a very impressive season for the 22-year old.

Herbert gets to play for one last cheque on this year’s European Tour before heading back to his homeland for the Australian PGA Championship.

South Australian Wade Ormsby is in 45th place with €909,999.

The bulk of Ormsby’s money came from his win at the Hong Kong Open early in the season but he gets to play the event for the second occasion having first played in 2014 when 47th.

West Australian Jason Scrivener narrowly missed out on a place in the field, the list of starters going down to 64th place on the Race to Dubai rankings after those ineligible were deducted from the list. 

New Zealander Ryan Fox has also made the elite field.
