Golf – Race To Dubai: Francesco Molinari In The Lead
Italian Francesco Molinari stayed on course to win his first Race to Dubai title in the wake of completing the opening round of the DP World Tour Championship a shot superior to equal Tommy Fleetwood.
If Tommy Fleetwood triumphs in the season finale and he finishes worse than tied fifth with one other person, only then can he be denied the general crown.
Francesco Molinari and Tommy Fleetwood may be good friends, but this week, they’re enemies. 😳
The Ryder Cup stars are the only two players with a chance to win the European Tour’s Race to Dubai at the season-finale next week.https://t.co/MdXWxyd8mK

At present, Adrian Otaegui and Jordan Smith lead with Molinari behind on four under.
Spaniard Jon Rahm is closely followed by England’s Danny Willett who is on five under.
Molinari three-putted both the fifteenth and eighteenth, prior sharing a lead after 14 holes at the Jumeirah Golf Estates.

Since his legendary Ryder Cup performance Francesco Molinari went 56-43 so it seemed his season was a bit too long. Therefore I never expected him to do that well in #DPWTC, where he’s currently leading the tournament with -6 after 14 holes. Great finish for a great season.
