The Race Is On

A Year-Long Battle

To win The 2011 Race to Dubai, a player must end his season at the top. Spanning a full year, it is a competition that began in South Africa with the Alfred Dunhill Championship on 9 December 2010 and will end at Jumeirah Golf Estates on 8 December 2011 with the US $7.5 million Dubai World Championship presented by DP World. In The Race to Dubai, the European Tour’s top players compete in a minimum of 50 tournaments in a season-long contest that replaced The European Tour Order of Merit and awards the winner the iconic Harry Vardon Trophy.

Throughout the rivalry, players are ranked according to their earnings from all European Tour events, the Major Championships and the World Golf Championships. The top 60 players will qualify for the Dubai World Championship, and the top 15 players at the close of that tournament will share the US $7.5 million Race to Dubai bonus pool.

The Race to Dubai is a true test of playing at a consistently high level throughout the entire season.
