It is the commercial end of the season on the DP World Tour, with only three events remaining until the end of the season.
This week a trip to Portugal and the Dom Pedro Victoria golf course is on the agenda portuguese champion. That’s before the players take a week off before traveling to South Africa and eventually Dubai.
All eyes are on the Race to Dubai qualifying with Rory McIlroy’s lead looking hard to break. That said, many players at the other end of the table are hoping for a good week in Portugal to secure their playing privileges for next season.
Last year, Thomas Pieters won on a golf course where birdies and eagles are the order of the day. Last year, the Belgian shot 19 under par on a course where power is a valuable commodity.
Let’s take a look at all the details before the week starts…

The bunker bet
Nicholas h.Ojgaard: Big hitters tend to do well here, and Nicolai certainly isn’t lacking in tee shots. The Dane has been in good form lately but has failed to win in 2022. This could be his week.
