The Chance to emulate his Seve Ballesteros Later Going into a share of the lead at the DP World Tour Championship is being eyed by jon Rahm.
Rahm, looking to win the season-finale for a time, birdied four of his final nine holes to post a 66 and combine Mike Lorenzo-Vera in the top of the leaderboard.
Victory for Rahm might see him join Ballesteros as the only Spanish gamers to win the Race to Dubai or the European Tour Order of Merit, providing Bernd Wiesberger finishes outside of the top two, with the world No 5 shy of ending the year as European No 1.
Gives me goosebumps to consider that [winning the Race to Dubai], Rahm told Sky Sports. As a Spaniard, when you connect or youve got the chance to place your name onto a record where there is just 1 name and that title is Seve (Ballesteros), it is quite impactful.
It is very emotional for all of us. To think not Sergio (Garcia) or Miguel ??ngel (Jimenez) or Ollie (Jose Maria Olazabal) or even a number of other great players can do it.
It is hard to believe I have the chance to be the second, but I am only going to try to take pleasure in the afternoon. Hopefully I can keep this going everywhere for 18 more holes and be the last man standing.
Fleetwood also stays in the hunt to acquire the Race to Dubai with a two-under 70 maintaining the 2017 European No 1 in four strokes of the lead, for the second time in 3 years.
While a runner-up end will be enough if Rahm doesnt end the week with a fourth Rolex Series title A victory in as many starts would visit Fleetwood top the standings, as long as Wiesberger stays outside the two.
One thing I probably have not done great from the past is that you just misjudge exactly what you believe a winning score might be you think guys are going to keep going at it, Fleetwood said. You dont understand whats going to happen on a Sunday.
All you can do is play your golf and hit your shots, and then get the best score you can and see if thats good enough. It will go on the market, trying my very best, tomorrow.
There is a couple more situations. There is 1 tournament happening and then theres the Race to Dubai. I think that its only. So far, I really feel like Ive done a wonderful job of it.
See the DP World Tour Championship and the Rush to Dubai season dwell on Sunday from 6.30am on Sky Sports Golf along with Sky Sports Main Event!
