HOME JUSTIN ROSE AND TOMMY FLEETWOOD Da vid Gorman he shared the 54-hole lead, before finishing in a tie for 8th place. "My Sundays have been poor of late. I feel like a couple of my friends text me before today and were saying I was due a good Sunday. There it is. That's as good as I could play." Lowry fired 10 birdies in his round, the lowest of any player in the field by two shots. The Offalyman left Dubai satisfied, the same could not be said for Justin Rose, who blew his opportunity of winning both the tournament and the Race to Dubai with an error-strewn finish. Rose had seemed in cruise control mid-round, but that's golf and we see the effects of pressure again and again. Fleetwood had made it easier for Rose too by bogeying his final two holes to finish in a tie for 21st place. In the end, a year of golf boiled down to one stroke, as Fleetwood took the crown. With Rahm winning, had he played in South Africa or Turkey, a top 4 finish in either would have given him the Race to Dubai title. NEWS IN BRIEF EUROPEAN TOUR PGA TOUR LPGA TOUR IRISH NEWS EQUIPMENT COLUMN STATS So Fleetwood was ultimately rewarded for being more committed to the European Tour, playing in 12 more European Tour events than Rose, and 11 more than Rahm, albeit Rahm had the handicap of only becoming a European Tour member in March. With not much time for reflection, the 2018 season starts next week at the Hong Kong Open.
