Morikawa seals Race to Dubai title

Overnight leader McIlroy’s challenge was ended with three bogeys in his last four holes

Collin Morikawa birdied five of the last seven holes to win the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai on 17 under par and clinch the European Tour’s season-long Race to Dubai title.

The world number two carded a closing six-under 66 to finish three clear of England’s defending champion Matt Fitzpatrick and Alexander Bjork.

Overnight leader Rory McIlroy faded late to finish tied sixth.

Morikawa becomes the first American to win the European Tour’s money list.

It caps a stunning season for the 24-year-old, having secured his second major title at the Open Championship and won the WGC-Workday Championship in February.
