SHANE LOWRY shot his lowest round since 2011 at the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai today to finish on 18-under-par.

He signed off with a 63 to finish up on 18 par and tied for second, one shot behind the victor, Jon Rahm.

"My Sunday's have been poor of late", he said.

"My caddy Dermot said to me after last week that he feels it's as good as my all-round game has been in a long time". "I'm chuffed to shoot it".

Lowry started 2017 in 43rd spot in the world rankings, but after a stop-start season, he drifted out to 85th.

Having claimed two tournament victories in succession to give himself a chance of ending the year as the European Tour's number one for a second time, Rose led by one overnight in Dubai and remained atop the leaderboard after turning in 32 to reach 19 under on Sunday.

After birdies on holes four and five, Fox's sole blemish came with a bogey on the par-four 12th, before he was able to birdie 14 and 15 and end his season on a positive note.
