European Tour Fantasy Golf Picks & Predictions

Tommy Fleetwood gave himself a legitimate shot at wrapping up the Race to Dubai title after a brilliant third-round 67 at the Nedbank Challenge

While the PGA Tour Champions is catching flak for its playoff system, one that enabled Kevin Sutherland's sole victory to defeat Bernhard Langer's marvelous seven-win campaign, there won't be any controversy involved with the European Tour's Race to Dubai coronation this week.

Last week's victor Branden Grace tees it up this week in a very strong field including all of the European Tour's biggest names barring Rory McIlroy and Henrik Stenson.

Now in the running for the European No 1 title for 2017: Englishman Tommy Fleetwood with 4,235,987 points, Justin Rose with 3,979,250 and Sergio Garcia, who has 3,184,582 points. As long as Rose doesn't finish in the top five and Garcia doesn't win, Fleetwood will lift the trophy on Sunday. I've played brilliant all year and to be in with a chance of winning the Race to Dubai, it's pretty special, really. "I'm happy finishing second, third or fourth or whatever".

"I guess all companies change and the politics with TaylorMade have changed after leaving Adidas", added
Garcia, who won his first major title at Augusta National in April.

The 23-year-old endured a rocky summer but is heading into this week's season-ending event in fine form having picked up his fourth European Tour title at the Omega European Masters in September before going on a consistent run that has seen him finish in the top 15 in each of his six events since the victory in Switzerland.

At the Nedbank Golf Challenge at San City in South Africa last week Fleetwood was 10th and the event was won by Branden Grace.

"I had some important things that I needed to take care of", he said.

Jack Sock wins at ATP World Tour Finals despite 4am fire alarm
Federer and German third seed Alexander Zverev meet in Tuesday's second match in the Boris Becker Group. "It was probably one of the most annoying noises I've ever heard in my entire life", Sock said.

He told the European tour website: "As much as it depends on what they do, it is in my hands". The eight-tournament series was supposed to attract Europe's elite on a more consistent basis.

Four other players in Sergio Garcia, fellow Spaniard Jon Rahm and the English duo of Tyrrell Hatton and Ross Fisher are all but out of contention for the $1.25 million bonus prize.

"I don't even know", he admitted.

"I can't control what
other people do".

I just think it's great that I've got the chance to win it, and a good chance.

Interestingly, Garcia looks to be using new clubs this week after being spotted playing with Callaway equipment.
