Tommy Fleetwood leads the standings and looks to win his first ever Race to Dubai title, with Justin Rose in second, 256,737 points behind.

On the three-way race for the Race to Dubai title, Garcia pleaded ignorance about the possibilities.

Garcia, of course, won the Masters in April and then went on to lift to Andalucia Valderrama Masters in October. "Obviously, both Tommy (Fleetwood) and Justin (Rose) are playing really well", he pointed out. After 15 years with TaylorMade, Garcia is testing Callaway clubs for his last event of the year in preparation for changing equipment deals. However, Fleetwood would also have to finish outside of the top 20 and Rose outside of solo fourth.

"I see a 2-percent chance of me winning the Race to Dubai, but I'm fine with it".

The European Tour's season-finale DP Tour Championship takes place at Jumeriah Golf Estates in Dubai this week, which culminates in the final stop in the Race to Dubai. "Excited for these last few weeks of the year", he enthused.

Garcia practiced at the Earth on Tuesday and felt that the course had improved compared to the previous years.

The course measures nearly 7,700-yards and the final four holes all feature water - it could be a grandstand finish on Sunday. But the former Amateur World No. 1 is in no doubt that his 2016 DP World Tour Championship victory stands out above all the rest. For £6.99 you can get a day pass, if you just wish to watch one of the rounds, or for just £10.99 you can get a week pass to see the whole tournament. The wins refused to come, however, until he overcame an eight shot 54-hole deficit to win the World Golf Championship HSBC Champions and, seven days later, a nine shot 36-hole disadvantage to claim the Turkish Airlines Open.
