DP World Tour Championship: Field, tee times, and groups for the season finale
Published: 18 November 2023
The DP World Tour reaches its conclusion in Dubai.
The DP World Tour reaches its climax in Dubai for the season-ending Tour Championship, but who is playing and what are the tee times?
Jump To: Round 4 Tee Times | Who Will Win
Four is set to become five for Rory McIlroy, as the Northern Irishman prepares to end the season as Europe’s No.1 golfer once again. It will be the second time Rory has defended the prestigious Race to Dubai title, having previously won the Order of Merit in 2012, 2014, and 2015.
It is also the first time a player has been crowned champion before the final event of the season. McIlroy did not play at last week’s Nedbank Golf Challenge, where the only players with a chance of catching the four-time Major champion failed to secure enough points to stay in contention.
Adrian Meronk’s T15 finish in South Africa only gained the Polish player 94.5 points, keeping him an insurmountable 2,294 points adrift of McIlroy, with the only other contender, Ryan Fox, finishing T51.
The most legitimate threat to McIlroy’s defense would have come in the shape of World No.3 Jon Rahm , had the Spaniard decided to make the trip to Sun City. A solid performance at the Nedbank would have put a sizable dent into the 2,083-point deficit, making Rory’s walk in Dubai a little less processional.
There is still a rather big tournament to be won in Dubai however, and with McIlroy and Rahm gunning for their third and fourth Tour Championship titles respectively, the competition is likely to be as fierce as ever.
Rahm secured a two-shot victory over the stellar field in 2022, making it three wins and a top-five finish from his four trips to the Earth Course. In doing so, Rahm became the first player to win the Tour Championship three times, and the only player to have won five Rolex Series titles.
While McIlroy and Rahm will no doubt be heavily fancied once again in Dubai, a contingent of their Ryder Cup stablemates including Viktor Hovland, Tyrrell Hatton, Tommy Fleetwood, and Matt Fitzpatrick will all relish the opportunity to steal bragging rights out in the desert.
Where is the DP World Tour Championship being played?
The 45th and final event of the DP World Tour season is held at the Jumeirah Golf Estates in Dubai, a luxury golf community rated among the best lifestyle estates in the world.
The Estate boasts two Greg-Norman-designed courses – Fire and Earth, with the latter having played host to the DP World Tour’s flagship event for 14 years.
At 7,675 yards, the par-72 Earth course has been inspired by the great parklands of Europe and North America, featuring rolling terrain, rushing water, and unforgiving bunkers. The greens typically run at 12 on the stipmeter and water is on play on the 6th, 14, 16th, 17th, and 18th holes.
Englishman Justin Rose holds the course record at the Earth Course. His ten under 62 in 2012 however was not quite enough to prevent Rory McIlroy from winning his first Tour Championship title.

Who is playing in the DP World Tour Championship?
The Tour Championship will feature the top 50 players in the Race to Dubai Rankings including six of the top 20 in the Official Golf World Rankings .
Ten members of Europe’s winning Ryder Cup team from Rome will tee it up in the desert with only Justin Rose and Ludvig Aberg missing out. Other notable names not making the 50-player cut are England’s Aaron Rai and Scotland’s Richie Ramsey, who hold six DP Tour wins between them.
Seven of the top 20 players in the Race to Dubai Rankings hail from Scandinavia, including Denmark’s Thorbjorn Olesen, Nicolai and Rasmus Hojgaard, Sweden’s Alexander Bjork and Vincent Normrman, Finland’s Sami Valimaki, and Norwegian FedExCup Champion, Victor Hovland .
Non-European golfers in the field include Ryan Fox, Min Woo Lee, Ryo Hisatsune, Thriston Lawrence, Tom Kim, Daniel Hillier, Zander Lombard, and Lucas Herbert.
Who will win the DP World Tour Championship?
After a stunning 12-under par 60, England’s Matt Wallace (3/1) has launched himself into title contention, firing 12 birdies to top the leaderboard by a shot going into Sunday’s final round.
Hot on Wallace’s heels however are Europe’s Ryder Cup heroes Viktor Hovland (9/5) and Tommy Fleetwood (14/5) who will fancy their chances of a season-ending win in the desert.
Nicolai Hojgaard 14/1
Jeff Winther 18/1
Jon Rahm 28/1
Ewen Ferguson 30/1

DP World Tour – Race to Dubai standings
Going into the season-ending Tour Championship, Rory McIlroy has compiled an insurmountable lead over the chasing pack from just nine tournaments played.

Adrian Meronk is currently the highest-ranked player, not otherwise exempt through the top 50 of the 2023 FedExCup standings, and is in prime position to earn an exemption into the Players Championship and two PGA Tour Signature Events in 2024.
Also in contention for dual membership are Rolex Series winner Victor Perez, Ryder Cup rookie Robert MacIntyre, and first-time DP World Tour winner Ryo Hisatsune.

DP World Tour Championship
Matt Wallace birdies every hole on the back nine to take lead at DP World Tour finale … but there's a catch
Matt Wallace's impressive Saturday in Dubai comes with an asterisk as his 12-under 60 with nine birdies on the final nine holes was played under lift, clean and place rules so they won't be listed in the DP World Tour record book.
DUBAI — On the Earth course he played like a man from outer space. Or at least a man possessed. Making nine straight birdies on his back-nine, Matt Wallace completed the third round of the Race to Dubai’s season-ending DP World Tour Championship at the Jumeirah Golf Estates in a mere 60 shots, 12 under par.
Great stuff clearly, but every one of Wallace’s 12 birdies and six pars comes with an asterisk. An overnight storm led to preferred lies being in operation, so the 33-year-old Englishman’s effort will not count in the former European Tour’s record books. What it did do, however, was take him to 16 under par and into the 54-hole lead, one stroke clear of FedEx Cup champion Viktor Hovland and fellow Englishman Tommy Fleetwood in the race for the $3 million first prize.
That “non-counting” fact is disappointing, but perhaps fair enough. Wallace himself admitted that “ball in hand” had aided him on at least two pitch shots from what he was able to turn into perfect lies.
Still, if his (almost) historic effort had been deemed official, Wallace would have equaled the records for most birdies in a DP World Tour event, the low-nine relative to par and most birdies in succession over 18 holes. He is though the first man ever to make those nine birdies on either a back nine or a front nine.
“It didn’t feel that good playing alongside what Matt was doing,” said a smiling Dan Bradbury, his playing partner who shot a “pedestrian” 68. “But I’m happy with my day. I was just trying to act normal around him. He missed one putt on seven, which he’s probably not too happy about. But it was all so easy. I was listening to him and his caddie. It was, ‘aim here’ and he hit it there. Every time. There wasn’t a weakness. One of those days. The phrase ‘couldn’t miss’ is appropriate.”
More From Golf Digest
Wallace seemed equally non-plussed by it all, to the extent that the World No. 87 didn’t realize the bunker shot he struck to a foot on the 18th green would have made him only the second man to shoot 59 on the DP World Tour (after Oliver Fisher at the 2018 Portugal Masters) had it fallen in.
“Dan said he felt like he had shot five over and he shot four-under,” Wallace said. “I putted nicely, which is a change from the form I’ve been in. I was so confident today. I felt like as long as I hit it on my line, I was reading them really well. I’ve been working towards this, so it’s really nice that it all came good there on the back-nine. I guess I’m just not scared to go low. I love making birdies and always want to make one more. I always want to push forward, and I guess it showed out there.
Asked to pick out the best shot on a day when he clearly hit so many good ones, Wallace identified two.
“The 3-wood into 14 was mega,” he claimed. “I just flushed it into the middle of the green. That was a great shot but the one that really pushed me on was the 6-iron into 12. Off an upslope to a left pin, I hit it to four feet.
“And yes, I had no idea what I was achieving,” he continued. “Because you don’t think that far ahead. When I went onto the 16th tee all I was thinking was ‘ball in play.’ When I got down there, I had a perfect number. So I took it on. I went through the same process I would on day one. Then I hit it to a foot. It doesn’t always happen like that. But I hit a lovely shot. The confidence and the flow was there.”
Indeed, Wallace might not be done yet. Now that he is paying full attention, he has a singular aim in mind come the final round.
“Give me one more hole,” he said. “Hopefully I can do it [make a birdie] on the first tomorrow and get to 10.”

Jon Rahm can't finish in style as his birdie attempt drifts right of the cup.
But the Spaniard takes down the 2022 DP World Tour Championship with a two-stroke victory after a final round of 5-under 67.
Just brilliant play from the former World No.1
This is the fourth time he has won this tournament and a record fifth Rolex Series title.
A. Arnaus, J. Campilo -10
Jon Rahm's tee shot at 18 wasn't his best and he found himself way left in the trees with a dodgy lie and overhanging trees blocking his route to the green.
He had to keep his second shot low...and he did.
Rahm manages to find the spot he was aiming for and he will have the simplest of approaches to the green.
And it's a beauty!
He can enjoy the walk now.
Rory McIlroy splashes his third shot out of the bunker at 18 but cannot convert the birdie.
He will finish top of the DP World Tour Rankings.
Some 2022 from McIlroy.
Green Jacket next year, anyone?!
Tyrrell Hatton cards a 6-under 66 to finish the DP World Tour Championship on 18-under par.
Jon Rahm makes his par at the tough par-3 17th.
Rory McIlroy is striding up the 18th now after hitting his second shot into the greenside bunker at the par-5 closing hole.
The Northern Irishman, 33, receives a warm reception from the crowd in Dubai.
The World No.1 will finish top of the DP World Tour Rankings...
Jon Rahm finds the green at 17.
And with it, he moves closer to winning the DP World Tour Championship for a record third time!
Oh man, Alex Noren's tee shot at 18 dribbles into the water. He walks back to his bag and places his hands on his hips.
Jon Rahm can surely enjoy the last few holes now?
Rory McIlroy is four behind now and that is that for the Northern Irishman. He's just about to play the par-5 18th.
If anyone is going to beat Rahm now it has to be Alex Noren.
The Swede makes birdie at 17 to move to 18-under.
Eagle finish, anyone?!
. @JonRahmpga extends his advantage once again. He leads by two with five holes left. #DPWTC | #RolexSeries pic.twitter.com/mmhxGt5iBv — DP World Tour (@DPWorldTour) November 20, 2022
Jon Rahm makes birdie at 15.
The Spaniard stuffs his approach to 6ft and he gobbles up the birdie to move to 20-under, three clear of Tyrrell Hatton and Alex Noren.
As I type this, Rory McIlroy has found the water...

Who wins this? #DPWTC — GolfMagic (@GolfMagic) November 20, 2022
Jon Rahm's lead is now two strokes heading into the final stages.
Rahm drains a 30ft bomb for birdie at the par-3 13th.
This was after Tyrrell Hatton made birdie at 14.
Hatton needs a big finish now!
My oh my. Tyrrell Hatton just had a superb chance to TIE the lead at the par-5 14th.
The Englishman finds the green in two and has a fantastic chance for eagle.
But his effort drifts just left of the cup.
Hatton shouts: "It can't go that way!"
It's a birdie at least.
Things are getting interesting...
Alex Noren just had an outside chance of a birdie at No. 12.
From 25 feet his putt drifts agonisingly close to dropping.
It's the same story again for the Swede at No. 13.
Can anyone stop Jon Rahm ?
Rahm's lead is now one shot at 18-under.
Sweden's Alex Noren finds a birdie at 11.
Tyrrell Hatton is getting a bit frustrated that some of his putts aren't dropping at all. He breaks a run of three consecutive pars from No. 10 with a birdie at 13.
The Englishman now has a par-5 up next...
Rory McIlroy may still be projected to finish top of the DP World Tour Rankings, but he's not out of this yet.
The Northern Irishman is now knocking on the door but holes are quickly running out.
He's just made a birdie at No. 10 and finds the fairway at 11...
He's four back of Rahm now.
Jon Rahm turns in 33, but that was white-knuckle stuff from the Spaniard at No. 9.
Left off the tee. Left of the green with his approach... and somehow, somehow he finds his par.
If he goes on to win, he'll look back at that moment.
How it stands as of 10:01am GMT
Rahm -18 (8)
Noren -16 (9)
Hatton -15 (10)
McIlroy -14 (10)
Fitzpatrick -13 (8)
Fleetwood -11 (11)
Campillo -11 (11)
It already looks like Matthew Fitzpatrick's race is run!
The U.S. Open champion has had an absolute NIGHTMARE on No. 8.
His drive was landed way right in the native area and he had 212 yards to the pin at the par-4.
By the time he was playing his third he still had 174 yards to the green. Then he made an absolute hash of his greenside chip.
Fitzy cards a DOUBLE BOGEY and drops back to 13-under, five shots off the lead.

Hello to you wherever you are!
News editor Ben here taking you through the action of the final round of the DP World Tour Championship.
Both Rory McIlroy and Alex Noren are in prime position at No. 9 and are on the hunt for birdies.
And Noren has a superb chance, he's hit a cracker there.
McIlroy's response from 160? His 9-iron lands way, way short!
Rahm still leads by two...
Alex Noren has just drained a birdie at the 6th to pull within a shot of the lead.
Rahm fails to convert a seven footer for par at the 4th and it leads to his first bogey of the day.
He now falls back to -17.
Hatton drops home a birdie on the 6th to move up into a tie for second on -15 with Noren and Fitzpatrick.
McIlroy has binned a third birdie of the day at the 5th, too, and he's now within three of the lead.
That shakes things up somewhat!
-17 J Rahm (4) -15 T Hatton (6) -15 A Noren (5) -15 M Fitzpatrick (4) -14 R McIlroy (5) -12 T Fleetwood (6)
Rahm could not have dreamed of a better start here on the Earth Course today.
He's just made a third consecutive birdie at the par-4 3rd, this time from 10 feet, and he has opened up a three-shot cushion atop the leaderboard on -18.
What an incredible start this has been.
R4 Leaderboard Update:
-18 J Rahm (3) -15 A Noren (4) -15 M Fitzpatrick (3) -14 T Hatton (5) -13 R McIlroy (4) -12 T Fleetwood (5)
Don't rule out Fitzpatrick just yet...
It's a first birdie of the day from just inside of 30 feet at the par-4 3rd for the Englishman and he moves to -15.
That pulls him to within two shots of playing partner Rahm.

Matt Wallace produced a historic back-nine birdie charge to take a one-shot lead into the final round of the season-ending DP World Tour Championship in Dubai.
Wallace came into the weekend seven strokes back but birdied every hole of his back nine during a remarkable Saturday at Jumeirah Golf Estates, where a 12-under 60 lifted him to 16 under and ahead of a congested leaderboard.
The nine consecutive birdies - 12 in total - and the back-nine 27 all equalled historic bests on the DP World Tour, although will not go into the record books because of preferred lies being used during the third round.

Wallace goes wild in Dubai
Wallace took advantage of the par-five second and holed from 10 feet to pick up a shot at the sixth, then responded to missing a seven-foot birdie chance at the next to convert from 12 feet at the eighth and reach the turn in 33.
The four-time DP World Tour winner started his incredible burst of scoring when he rolled in from 30 feet at the 10th and 20 feet at the par-four next, before adding further birdies from six feet at the 12th and close range at the 13th to close within two of the lead.

Wallace two-putted from 40 feet at the 14th and fired his approaches to tap-in range on the next two holes, with a six-foot birdie at the 17th moving him top of the leaderboard and raising the possibility of a '59 round'.
Game respects game 🤝 @mattsjwallace ’s playing partner @DanJBradbury enjoyed watching that back nine up close 🤣 #DPWTC | #RolexSeries pic.twitter.com/gzd2XdUprL — DP World Tour (@DPWorldTour) November 18, 2023
The Englishman found the greenside bunker with his approach into the par-five last but was inches away from holing out for eagle, although a tap-in birdie matched the DP World Tour bests for most birdies made in one round and most consecutive birdies.

"What a day, an amazing day," Wallace said. "I just tried my hardest to get myself back in the tournament. I played great there and at the end there I didn't even think that it was for a 59, honestly. I think it helped me a little bit, but I just played really nicely down the stretch."
Fleetwood jumped two clear earlier in the day after five birdies in his opening seven holes, with the former Race to Dubai champion cancelling out a three-putt bogey at the 12th with a monster eagle at the par-five 14th.
The Englishman retained a share of the lead with a birdie at the 16th but bogeyed the next and failed to take advantage of the par-five last, where Hovland holed from seven feet to close a blemish-free 66 and also get within one of the lead.
Winther's eight-under 64 included a hole-out eagle from the 10th fairway and another eagle at the last, while Hojgaard was within one of the lead until closing a two-under 70 with back-to-back bogeys and falling back alongside Ferguson - who fired a bogey-free 64 - on 13 under.
Defending champion Jon Rahm is five behind after a five-under 67, while Race to Dubai champion Rory McIlroy moved back inside the top 20 on the leaderboard by finding a birdie-eagle finish to close a seven-under 65.

2023 DP World Tour Championship live stream, how to watch online, TV schedule, golf tee times, channel
The race to dubai may have a winner but plenty remains on the line in the european finale.
The DP World Tour season is set to reach its conclusion this week with the 2023 DP World Tour Championship taking center stage at Jumeirah Golf Estates, Earth Course in Dubai. The top 50 players from the Race to Dubai standings will once again take to this par 72 with one eye on a massive payday that could be theirs come Sunday.
Rory McIlroy has already wrapped up the Race to Dubai crown thanks to regular-season performance. Highlighted by a come-from-behind victory at the 2023 Scottish Open, the Northern Irishman has claimed his fifth season-long title on the European circuit. No matter the case, the heavy hitters have arrived and look to put their finishing touches on the calendar year.
Race to Dubai No. 2 Jon Rahm makes his first start since the 2023 Ryder Cup, as does FedEx Cup champion Viktor Hovland. Englishmen Matt Fitzpatrick, Tyrrell Hatton and Tommy Fleetwood all hope to continue their fine form. Fleetwood comes in following a nice start at the Nedbank Challenge, while Fitzpatrick won the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship his last time out in early October.
These stars have their pick of the litter when it comes to where they wish to play in the world. Adrian Meronk hopes for the same as PGA Tour cards will be granted to the top 10 players in the rankings who do not already have their PGA Tour cards for 2024. The top player among these 10 will be fully exempt and adds an extra layer of drama among the likes of Adrian Meronk, Ryan Fox, Robert MacIntyre and Victor Perez.
All times Eastern; streaming start times approximated.

Japan's Hoshino wins first DPWT event at Qatar Masters
D OHA, Qatar — Rikuya Hoshino of Japan captured his first DP World Tour title by shooting 4-under 68 to win the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters by a stroke on Sunday.
The 27-year-old Hoshino rolled in a par putt from 5 feet at the 18th hole and punched the air after holding off playing partner Ugo Coussard, who made birdie at the last to finish alone in second place.
Hoshino transferred his success on the Japan Golf Tour, where he has won six times, with a victory on the European tour circuit.
“Of course I was nervous,” said the No. 107-ranked Hoshino, who shot four rounds in the 60s at Doha Golf Club, “but I tried to keep enjoying it.”
It was Hoshino’s 34th appearance on the tour and he has already had two runner-up finishes this season, at the Australian Open and the Australian PGA Championship.
He is the fourth Japanese winner in European tour history, after Isao Aoki, Hideki Matsuyama and Ryo Hisatsune.
Hoshino started the final round in a share of the lead with Coussard and Rasmus Hojgaard, the highest-ranked player in the field at No. 68. Hojgaard faded away by shooting 73.

(left-to-right) Scott McLean, European Tour Greenkeeping Consultant, Andrei Dukhovny, Director of Moscow Country Club, David MacLaren, Head of European Tour Properties, Mary Bazhenova, Golf Membership Manager of Moscow Country Club and Konstantin Gribkov, Golf Director of Moscow Country Club.
European Tour Properties has extended its portfolio of Destinations by welcoming Moscow Country Club as the 28 th venue within its extensive network of world-class venues.
Situated only an hour outside of Moscow, the club features Russia’s first 18-hole championship course and will host the Staysure Tour’s VTB Russian Open Golf Championship (Senior) from August 17-19, 2018.
The Country Club combines five-star hospitality with top-quality golf in a tranquil setting close to the Russian capital, and this new partnership extends the network to 28 venues within 21 countries, across three continents.
The course itself was designed by renowned architect Robert Trent Jones II and is nestled within dense Russian forest of thick firs and birches, offering a fascinating landscape for any golfer.
In addition to golf, Moscow Country Club features a five-star hotel, cottages and townhouses to rent throughout the year, and a choice of eight restaurants for guests to enjoy.
With an indoor and outdoor pool, state-of-the-art gym, tennis courts and other leisure activities, the extensive facilities at Moscow Country Club make the venue a strong addition to European Tour Properties’ network.

Wolstenholme ready to take on Moscow
August 16, 2018.
Gary Wolstenholme is preparing himself for ‘a test of golf' at Moscow Country Club with the VTB Russian Open Golf Championship (Senior) set to get under way on Friday.

And Wolstenhome, a three-time winner on the Staysure Tour, has played Moscow Country Club on two previous occasions and he is relishing the chance to tackle a course which he believes is in better condition than ever.
“This is the third time I've been here and I've become more impressed with the golf course as I've played it,” said Wolstenholme. “I think the golf course is definitely in a lot better condition than when we were here three or four years ago.
“The weather's been very difficult, so the green staff have had to work very hard to make this such a good venue. The design of the golf course is an extremely good test.
“It's long and it creates a test for players to play both right-to-left and left-to-right shots which, if you're a golfer, you appreciate that creates more of a test in itself.
“I think the course lends itself to long hitting, especially with the weather that we had last night as the course is pretty long anyway.
“Magnus P Atlevi, Stephen Dodd, Phil Price, from Wales, and Phil Golding, who won at London Golf Club recently, all stand out to me as having a chance to do well, but golf being golf, who knows? I might even do well! It's such a good test, I think only a very good player will do well here.”
Golf is an emerging sport in Russia and Moscow Country Club is at the forefront of the quest to encourage more of the country's natives to start playing.
Wolstenhome, GB&I's record points scorer at the Walker Cup who also received an MBE in 2007 for services to golf, has outlined both what he thinks is needed to grow the game, and some of the benefits which accompany it.
“To me, I think driving ranges are the future as far as giving people an opportunity to play the game,” he said.
“Short golf is the future, as are par three tournaments and things like that. To me, that's where we can get golf going in the future.
“Golf has the opportunity to be able to cross dividing lines, whether it's social or cultural. The great thing about golf is wherever you go in the world – and there are golf courses everywhere – from war-torn areas to the most affluent areas in the world, you transcend that.
“You can have somebody who is the lowest of the low from the point of view of not earning a great amount of money to multi-millionaires. You share that enjoyment of what is actually an incredibly difficult sport.”
Joining Wolstenholme in Russia this week is Staysure PGA Seniors Championship winner Philip Golding, Order of Merit Number Five Phillip Price, WINSTONgolf Senior Open champion Stephen Dodd and 1989 European Tour Number One Ronan Rafferty
The action begins in Russia on Friday August 17, with José Manuel Carriles and Jean Pierre Sallat the first group to tee off at 8.00am local time (BST+2).
