The RSM Classic, PGA Tour – 10 pts Outlay
At Sea Island Golf Course , 7,005 yards, par 70 – Thursday November 17th to Sunday November 20th
Dating back to 1929, Seaside began as nine holes by English architects Harry Colt and Charles Alison along the southern tip of St. Simon's Island. Bobby Jones once described Seaside as among the best nine holes he’d ever encountered. Joe Lee designed the “Marshside Nine” in 1973, and Tom Fazio was commissioned to bring the two together in 1999. Once again, entrants also will play one of the first two rounds at the revamped Plantation course, where Rees Jones also fused two previous nine-hole layouts into an 18-hole parkland test.
Olympic bronze medallist Matt Kuchar and Zach Johnson, neighbours on next-door St. Simon’s Island, join fellow U.S. Ryder Cup member Brandt Snedeker and captain Davis Love III for the final event of the fall season. Jim Furyk also is amid a line-up that includes five of the top 35 players in the world rankings. More than a half-dozen entrants don't have to venture far from their St. Simon's Island homes, a list that also includes former U.S. Open champion Lucas Glover, PGA TOUR winners Harris English, Jonathan Byrd and Brian Harman. Bob Estes, a four-time PGA TOUR winner, tees it up for just the third time since the end of 2013 but second in three weeks. He missed the cut in Las Vegas.

DP World Tour Championship, European Tour – 10 pts Outlay
At Jumeirah Golf Estates, 7,675 yards, par 72 – Thursday November 17th to Sunday November 20th
Earth is one of two courses set across the 1,119 hectares of lush green landscape at Jumeirah Golf Estates, and has been the home of the DP World Tour Championship since 2009. Designed by Greg Norman, the 7675 yard course is inspired by the great parkland courses of Europe and North America.
Earth plays to a par 72 and features rolling fairways, brilliant white bunkers and a deep red ochre backdrop framed by trees and shrubs.
There is no shortage of hazards, with a total of 99 bunkers as well as a variety of lakes. Each of the last four holes plays alongside or over water, culminating in a meandering creek running the full length of the 18th hole.
60 players will compete in the final event of the season, with four still in the running to win the Race to Dubai.
Open Champion Henrik Stenson currently leads the Rankings, followed by 2016 Masters Tournament winner Danny Willett. Alex Noren is now up to third position after claiming his fourth victory of the season at the Nedbank Golf Challenge hosted by Gary Player, while defending Race to 10 Dubai champion Rory McIlroy is also in contention, but must win this week to have a chance of being crowned European Tour Number One for the fourth time.
The additional incentive of a share of the $5million Bonus Pool for anyone finishing the season in the top ten means the likes of Tyrrell Hatton, Branden Grace, Rafa Cabrera Bello, Louis Oosthuizen, Chris Wood and Thorbjørn Olesen will all be looking to maintain their positions.
Slightly further down the Rankings, Jeunghun Wang has pulled ahead in the race to be named Sir Henry Cotton Rookie of the Year. Along with his rivals in the field - Li Haotong, Soomin Lee, Brandon Stone and Ricardo Gouveia - Wang is aiming to be the highest placed rookie in the final Race to Dubai Rankings and collect the award previously won by the likes of Martin Kaymer, Sergio Garcia and Ian Poulter.
