DP World Tour Championship Golf Matchups

The European Tour puts a lid on the 2021 season with a talented field off to Dubai for the DP World Tour Championship. Anyone in the field can claim the tournament title but just a handful of players can with the Race to Dubai as the Tour’s top player this season. Collin Morikawa currently leads the R2D and can become the first American to win the season-long rankings. He has the lead playing in just nine counting tournaments. The field lost top European draws Jon Rahm and Viktor Hovland leaving a field of 53 players set to attack the Earth Course at Jumeirah Golf Estates. Rory McIlroy has had all kinds of success in this tournament with a pair of titles on his resume and not surprisingly he opened as the outright favorite. The small field presents a limited number of matchups, but they are doozies featuring some of the best golfers on both the PGA and European Tours.

Need to Know

The top 50 in the season-long R2D standings qualified to participate, though not all of them are here. Along with a select number of invites the field has just 53 golfers. With no cut line the entire field will battle for four days at the magnificent Earth Course at Jumeirah Golf Estates. The only host this event has ever known plays at 7,675 yards and par 72, and is one of the Middle East’s top courses. The length may seem scary but it really isn’t with wide fairways and large greens keeping balls in play. That’s reflected in past scores with all but one winner carding 15-under or better. Big hitters rock this course but there is something for everyone. The layout offers a variety of holes and requires every stick in the bag.

DP World Tour Championship Matchup Picks

Matt Fitzpatrick -105 vs. Abraham Ancer

The defending champ became a two-time winner with his 1-shot victory last year, and with a chance of winning the R2D crown you can bet Fitzpatrick will let it all hang out. A lot has to go right in order for him to overtake the likes of Collin Morikawa and Billy Horschel, and it starts with him winning the outright. He got into contention with his win in the Andalucia Masters last month. And you can’t ignore his results here; 6 for 6 with two wins and an additional three top-12s. I was surprised to see him at this price and will happily throw down on him in this matchup.

Collin Morikawa +113 vs. Rory McIlroy

I couldn’t pass on a matchup of the top two favorites; I just couldn’t decide who to back. In the end I went with Morikawa because of the plus-odds price. McIlroy has chewed up this course over his career, so I might regret my decision. But I can’t go wrong backing Morikawa, who followed up the Ryder Cup victory with a runner-up in the CJ CUP and a T7 in the ZOZO. In his debut here last year he was T10, so it looks like things are aligned for him to win the R2D race.

Callum Hill -115 vs. Justin Harding

It’s already been a season to remember for Hill, who posted his first ET win a few months ago in the Cazoo Classic. He also flashed his skill in the desert landscape with a T4 earlier this year in Saudi Arabia giving him four top-5s among his seven top-10s this season. Stats wise he’s a nice fit for this layout and we’ve had enough of a sample size to take that into account.

Garrick Higgo -110 vs. Rasmus Hojgaard

Higgo is another player who fits the mold of success on this layout. Wide fairways and big greens will certainly help his mammoth drives and a little touch on the dance floor will have him contending for the outright. Higgo showed he can play at this level with a pair of ET wins and a PGA Tour title in close succession. He got acquainted with the course last year posting a T14 and should be in better shape this time around, which is why I’m backing him.

Tommy Fleetwood -115 vs. Sergio Garcia

Given his history in the Middle East and his success at this course, it’s hard not to back Fleetwood. It hasn’t been a bad season for him; it just hasn’t been what we’re used to seeing. He hasn’t won in two years, but he’s closing the season with a flurry heading to one of his favorite spots on a run of solid form. His T13 at the Dubai Championship last week was his worst finish in his last four ET starts. He won the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship in back-to-back years and he has three top-10s in his last five DP starts. I think Fleetwood is worth the risk.
