Lowry, Fitzpatrick Rise in Dubai Chase

With just two tournaments left until the start of the Final Series, the UK’s Matthew Fitzpatrick and Ireland’s Shane Lowry cemented their spots as major players in the upcoming race with big performances on Sunday.

Fitzpatrick’s win at the British Masters saw him rise to 12th in the Race to Dubai standings with 1,353,190 points.

Lowry finished second, and is now a strong fourth in the standings at 2,455,749 points; one of just six players above 2 million points on the year.

The top 60 players qualify for the lucrative Final Series, which spans Turkey, China, and the UAE over four straight weeks from late October to late November.

Also entering the top 10 for the first time this year is Denmark’s Soren Kjeldsen, who tied Lowry for second at the British Masters. Keldsen has 1,497,803 points.

The new man on the hot seat – No. 60 – is Germany’s Marcel Siem, currently at 476,879 points. Hot on his tail is South Africa’s Stephen Gallacher, just 3,303 points behind.
