Nine Dogs and Only One Bone

The Race is on. It's nearly half past midnight here in North Carolina, and 16 players are on the course at the DP World Tour Championship. Stenson and friends won't tee off for another 3 hours or so.

According to the ET website, only 9 players still have a chance to win the Race to Dubai. Those players (in order from 1 to 9) are:
  1. Henrik Stenson
  2. Justin Rose
  3. Graeme McDowell
  4. Ian Poulter
  5. Jamie Donaldson
  6. Gonzalo Fdez-Castaño
  7. Thongchai Jaidee
  8. Richard Sterne
  9. Victor Dubuisson
Of course, you have to figure only the Top4 have a realistic chance to win. Donaldson is almost as far behind Poulter as McDowell is behind Stenson... and both McDowell and Poulter need help to catch the Stensonator.

As far as I can see, the big question this week is whether Stenson's injured wrist will determine his fate. Justin Rose has been playing extremely well the last few weeks and played well at Dubai last year. He's probably the favorite this week. But the Earth Course at Jumeirah Golf Estates can play to 7675 yards (7017 meters), which should favor Stenson if his wrist holds up.

You see, not only is Stenson long but he lives in Dubai as well.

Can Stenson win the Race to Dubai to go with his FedExCup? I don't know, but if I was a betting man I'd put my money on Stenson. We'll know the answer soon enough.
