After 48 events on the long European Tour season, it has come down to a 2-horse race for the crown of European number 1. It is quite fitting that the 2 guys in the race are both European current major champions, both of whom won their maiden majors this season, and are also both members of the victorious European Ryder Cup Team at Celtic Manor in October. They are also both ranked in the top 10 of the world rankings.
Having claimed 4 victories throughout the season, Martin Kaymer is currently leading the race but hot on his heels and only €290,910 behind on the money list is Graeme McDowell. Having won 3 times this season, McDowell – who is in sparkling form – will feel confident going into the last tournament of the season. With so much money up for grabs in the season finale it will be exciting to see who comes out on top. I plan on watching as much of the tournament as possible in anticipation…I’m tipping McDowell to finish in the top 3 and overturn the deficit.
