McIlroy finishes top of money list without hitting a shot

Rory McIlroy has secured first place in the DP World Tour rankings without even playing a round. This is because his closest competitors cannot catch up to him after the penultimate event of the season at Sun City. McIlroy has now topped the European Tour money list five times, first in 2012 and then in 2014, 2015, and last year. Going into the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai this week, McIlroy has 5,164.5 points, putting him 2,083 points ahead of second-placed Jon Rahm, the Masters champion, with Adrian Meronk in third. McIlroy earned over seven million euros in prize money from nine tour events this year. Meronk, from Poland, participated in the Nedbank Challenge at Sun City and added 94.5 points to his total after finishing 15th. The tournament in South Africa was won by Max Homa from the United States, who finished four shots ahead of Denmark’s Nicolai Hojgaard. The top 50 players in the Race to Dubai rankings will compete for a $10-million purse at Jumeirah Golf Estate starting on Thursday.
