Desert Dazzle

by Mike Cullity

The European Tour’s season came to a stirring end on Sunday in Dubai, with Jon Rahm and Tommy Fleetwood emerging the big winners.

With a bulletproof 67 in the final round, Rahm won the DP World Tour Championship and lent further credence to the notion that he is Europe’s next superstar. Crowned European Tour rookie of the year in advance of the tournament, the 23-year-old Spaniard capped a year in which he had won twice previously, in California and Northern Ireland, and rocketed into the world’s top five.

Fleetwood, meanwhile, won the Race to Dubai after red-hot Justin Rose stumbled down the stretch, making three bogeys on his final nine to fall a stroke shy of the season-long accolade. Fleetwood, a 26-year-old Englishman with flowing locks and a working-class way, shot 74 Sunday but left $1.25 million richer.

In Florida, it felt like déjà vu at the LPGA’s season-ending CME Group Tour Championship. Lexi Thompson, seemingly in control, loses after a stunning turn of events. Sound familiar?

There was no rules imbroglio this time, as there had been in April at the ANA Inspiration, where Thompson lost in a playoff after officials assessed her four penalty strokes in the final round for improperly replacing a marked ball the day before. This time it was a missed tiddler on the 72nd hole, a blown gimme, that cost the 22-year-old American a chance at a big title.

With observers’ jaws still hanging agape after Thompson’s gaffe, Ariya Jutanugarn calmly birdied the last for a one-stroke victory. Still, Thompson can take solace in the $1 million she earned for winning the LPGA’s season-long Race to the CME Globe.


A Letter from the Publisher

On behalf of the team that publishes GlobalGolfPost each week, I want to thank you for your support. It means a great deal to us that you take time each week to read our weekly golf news publication.

When we launched just 16 months ago, our goal was to deliver golf news, information and analysis to serious golfers around the world. And we were then, as we are now, determined to take advantage of all that the digital platform has available. Your response has been overwhelmingly supportive, and we appreciate that very much.

From the beginning, the journalism side of our enterprise clicked, quickly. Having such esteemed golf writers like Lewine Mair, Paul Mahoney, Dermot Gilleece and John Hopkins join us made it easy to deliver the kind of golf content you want.

And now the business side of our enterprise is starting to work well, which usually happens if you get the content right. But here's where I want to ask for your help:

I'd like you to tell all your golf friends about us. Perhaps talk up the Post at your golf course. Get your regular foursome to sign up for a free subscription. Perhaps even send an e-mail to all your golf pals and encourage them to give us a try.

The key to our success now is to grow our audience of serious golfers throughout the UK. I hope you will take a moment to help us continue to grow and delight you.

Fairways & Greens,

Jim Nugent
