Molinari 1 shot ahead of Fleetwood in race for European No 1


The 29-year-old McIlroy hit the spotlight in 2007 by securing his European Tour card in just his second event by finishing third in the 2007 Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.

Speaking to reporters Tuesday at the season-ending DP World Tour Championship, McIlroy said that he wants to play the best competition week-in and week-out, and "for the most part of the season, that is in America". The US PGA Championship, traditionally the year's final major, will move from August to May and the Players Championship will move to March.

First awarded in 1955, the Collare d'Oro al Merito Sportivo can only be bestowed on an athlete once in a career, for achieving the pinnacle in their sport, and there can be no doubt of Molinari's merit after he won the Open Championship and then became the first European to win five out of five points in the Ryder Cup.

"It is the result of the changes". All he has to do, therefore, is find two more events on the European schedule from September onwards, when the PGA Tour season will have ended. Since the latter is an Omega event, he will play the European Masters in Crans Montana, because he is obligated to play at least one Omega event.

"The way the schedule has worked for next year, it is going to be different for a lot of guys".

"I think everything is going to be so condensed between March and August so that's why I'm going to be taking quite a big off season to get myself ready". The Spaniard capped off an awesome rookie season here in 2017 with a one-shot victory and the Spaniard arrives in Dubai in fine form with five top five finishes in his last 11 European Tour starts, with two wins this year as he hopes to ensure the season finale isn't just about the "Moliwood" matchup.

Rory McIlroy has delivered a major blow to the European Tour, revealing he will be giving up his membership for the 2019 season to focus on the US-based PGA Tour. The European Tour will change literally any rule it needs to shoehorn McIlroy into captaincy.

'I'm always going to want to play in the Ryder Cup, so if I give up my membership, I'll rejoin in 2020 and try to make the team that way.'
