A Fitting End to the 2012 Season

At the time I'm writing this, the final round of the DP World Tour Championship has started but over half of the players have yet to tee off. It may be finished by the time you read this post, although GC will probably be showing the final round twice more before Sunday is over. It should be worth watching.

After a season where we've seen more great storylines than we imagined possible, the last big tournament of the year comes down to this: The World #1 and #2 paired together, tied for the lead, with 2 other major champions -- one of whom has been just short of magnificent this year -- in the second to last group.

Does it get any better than this?

Rory McIlroy and Luke Donald are tied at -17. According to GC, Donald has played his last 100 holes at this course (going back to last year's tournament) without a single bogey. Rory's a bit under the weather, yet he's still managing to match Luke's score.

Right behind them at -14 are Charl Schwartzel and Louis Oosthuizen. But for a handful of shots this year, Oosthuizen would have won the Masters and 5 or 6 other tournaments. Schwartzel has been recovering from rib and ab injuries this year, but has been showing signs of returning to form.

I don't know what's going to happen, but one thing is clear...

After this year, the 2013 season is gonna have some mighty big shoes to fill.
