Sergio Garcia plays down European No 1 chance

Nedbank Golf Challenge- Day One

The Spaniard is one of only two players who can still overtake Tommy Fleetwood at the top of the standings, although needs a win at Jumeirah Golf Estates to have any chance of finishing European No 1.

While the PGA Tour Champions is catching flak for its playoff system, one that enabled Kevin Sutherland's sole victory to defeat Bernhard Langer's marvelous seven-win campaign, there won't be any controversy involved with the European Tour's Race to Dubai coronation this week.

Now in the running for the European No 1 title for 2017: Englishman Tommy Fleetwood with 4,235,987 points, Justin Rose with 3,979,250 and Sergio Garcia, who has 3,184,582 points.

Sergio Garcia insists he has no regrets at leaving himself just a two per cent chance of winning the Race to Dubai for the first time as he gets to grips with a surprising change of equipment.

Defending champion Matt Fitzpatrick is in the field this week after he won this tournament previous year with a birdie at the 72nd hole.

Justin Rose - The Englishman has won his last two events and will be gunning for the Race to Dubai title.

The world #6 will win the Race to Dubai if he finishes second on his own, as long as Fleetwood doesn't win.

Final preparations are in place for some of the world's best golfers, ahead of this year's DP World Tour Championship.

"Winning the Race to Dubai would be great but I'm not going to change my whole life for it", the 37-year-old said
of his refusal to alter his
schedule. A couple of the fairways are looking better than the last few years.

"The US Amateur is also up there for me, it always will be one of my favourite wins, but to claim DP World Tour Championship in the way that I did, and the field I was up against, was very special and something I will never forget". It was designed by Greg Norman, who has identified European parkland courses as his inspiration, which is perhaps why the elite-level players have taken to the layout very nicely.

On the three-way race for the Race to Dubai title, Garcia pleaded ignorance about the possibilities. It doesn't really bother me. I can't control what other people do.

Justin Rose is the closest challenger to Tommy Fleetwood this week. I can live with it. "It has been a great year and that's not going to change".

But the former Amateur World No. 1 is in no doubt that his 2016 DP World Tour Championship victory stands out above all the rest.
