A serious group of South African golfers head into the lucrative season-ending tournament of the European Tour in Dubai tomorrow and a few others tackle the RSM Classic on the American circuit.

Dean Burmester leads the “Saffers” at the DP World Tour Championship at Dubai’s Jumeirah Golf Estates, where the “Race to Dubai” order of merit/money title will climax this week.

The tournament’s prize fund is a handsome $9 million (over R138 million), aside from bonuses that apply to the Race to Dubai competition-within-a-competition.
