  • Rory Mc Ilroy in action

"Of the 12 players that represented Europe in the Ryder Cup this year, Rory is the only one who is going to do that and the others have all signed up to play the minimum of four events outside of the majors and WGCs. We have expanded our support for the European Tour to 2021 and we will continue to deliver great experiences for golf fans across the globe".

Danny Willett made a superb start to the DP World Tour Championship and put it down to 'one of those days'.

Rory McIlroy is considering relinquishing his European Tour membership next year, which would rule him out of ever becoming Ryder Cup captain.

With such a dazzling array of talent on display, the 10th anniversary edition of the Race to Dubai's grand finale event promises to be a truly captivating occasion.

To be fair to McIlroy, the golf calendar is undergoing a significant shift next year which is positively encouraging the superstars to spend more time in America.

If anything, McIlroy would seem now likely, and given a totally revamped 2019 season that features the Players Championship in March, the PGA Championship in May and the BMW PGA Championship moving to September, to tee-up in the July 11th starting Scottish Open and a week prior to the 148th Open Championship at Royal Portrush.

Molinari became the first Italian to win a major when he claimed The Open at Carnoustie, which followed victory in the PGA Championship at Wentworth and a maiden PGA Tour title in the Quicken Loans National.

"I've got a couple of "pure" European Tour events on my schedule up until the end of August". 'I am starting my year off in the States (Tournament of Champions in January) and that will be the big focus of mine up until the end of August, and then we will assess it from there.' The former world No 1 is ranked seventh now and has only won once since claiming the 2016 Tour Championship. However, the Englishman needs to win this DP World Tour Championship and for Molinari to finish worse than in a two-way tie for fifth.

'If I want to contend in the majors and continue my journey back towards the top of the game, that's what I want to do.

It has been a season of firsts for Francesco Molinari, but the Ryder Cup hero is looking forward to two more before finally being able to reflect on a remarkable year.

I guess I should say even more on the PGA Tour.

"I know we're going to sound really cheesy, but if I don't win I'd rather see him win than anyone else. It's never going to be easy when you have these kind of players here, and hopefully I can play good enough golf to have a chance on Sunday", said Molinari. By losing European Tour status, McIlroy wouldn't qualify for the Ryder Cup, but since 2019 is a gap year between events, he doesn't have to worry about that.

When is the DP World Tour Championship?
