Stenson wins second Race to Dubai title

Sweden's Henrik Stenson won the Race to Dubai title for the second time in four years on Sunday. The 40-year-old came in to the season-ending DP World Tour Championship in Dubai in the lead and sealed the title in style.

Stenson carded a seven-under-par round of 65, five shots clear of his nearest challenger, 2016 Masters champion Danny Willett.

The Race to Dubai win - which rewards the most successful golfer over the course of the year - nets Stenson a bonus of $1.25 million as the European Tour's top player.

“It has been a great year, the best year of my career,” Stenson told Sky Sports. “I always thought it was going to be difficult to top 2013 but I think I have done that. It’s been a great year and it’s great to finish in this way.”

Stenson finished joint ninth in the DP World Tour Championship event, which was won by England's Matt Fitzpatrick.
