Race to Dubai: Jon Rahm denies Tommy Fleetwood to win Tour Championship

Jon Rahm birdied the final hole to win the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai on 19 under par and clinch the European Tour’s season-long Race to Dubai title.

Rahm holed a three-foot putt to finish one ahead of England’s Tommy Fleetwood and win the event for the second time.

The win also meant the 25-year-old Spaniard also pipped Fleetwood, 28, to be the number one in Europe for 2019.

Rahm becomes the second Spaniard to achieve the feat after the late Seve Ballesteros, who won it six times.

“Seve was such an idol for us,” said Rahm. “To put my name there, it’s hard to believe. I can’t believe some of the things I have accomplished.”
