The top-60 players on the European Tour's year-long Race to Dubai standings have qualified for the season-ending tournament, and that includes the four Europeans in the top-10 of the world rankings –- McIlroy, number four Henrik Stenson, number six Sergio Garcia and number seven Justin Rose.

While that assured him of the lion's share of the bonus pool ($1.25 million out of $5 million), there is a chance for someone among the 59 other players to win the tournament and walk away with a cheque of $2.13 million ($1.33million for the winner of the tournament and an $800,000 bonus for finishing second in the Race to Dubai) on Sunday evening.
