Molinari leads Fleetwood in race for European title

The Italian has topped the season-long Race to Dubai standings ever since he got his hands on the claret jug in July, and this week the only player that can take the overall crown from him is Tommy Fleetwood, who won the Race to Dubai past year. Most of this is simply the fallout from a completely revamped European Tour schedule, which was an answer to a sort-of revamped PGA Tour schedule for the 2018-19 season.

Here's how to watch the DP World Tour Championship on TV, online and even without Sky Sports.

Rory McIlroy dropped a bombshell Tuesday by hinting he could give up his European Tour membership in an effort to get back to the top of the world rankings next year. He will play only once more - in Hawaii in the first week in January - over the next 13 weeks.

McIlroy has only two on his schedule and may miss the Irish Open, which he has hosted for the last four years.

"I guess my thing is that I want to play against the strongest fields week-in and week-out, and for the most part of the season that is in America, " McIlroy said.

All that to say, I'm not sure this is as big of a deal as its being made into.

As a PGA Tour member, McIlroy is required to play 15 tournaments, and aside from the four major championships, he'll have plenty of choices, especially when the schedule is extremely busy in late February up until the Masters.

"If I want to continue to contend in the Majors and to continue to contend in the Majors, and to continue my journey back towards the top of the game, then that's what I want to do". That has pushed the European Tour's flagship event, the BMW PGA Championship, to September and McIlroy warned that he might not be the only high-profile name to make the move. "So, I think that will work out well". The Race to Dubai - the rebranded Order of Merit - roll of honour comprises Westwood, Martin Kaymer, Luke Donald, Fleetwood, Stenson (2) and McIlroy (3).
