2018 Fantasy Race to Dubai


Dave Tindall is our main man in Europe. In addition to his weekly previews of European Tour events on Mondays, he’ll share his selections and analysis for the Fantasy Race to Dubai at EuropeanTour.com.
 
Format: Pick 6 golfers. Players accumulate points based on Race to Dubai (R2D) points earned. Captain’s points are doubled. Unlimited team changes can be made each week.
 
Team Tindall (Team name: YESSIR!)
 
 

Last week: Miserable again. Feels like I’ve started this season par, double bogey, par, bogey. Must keep telling myself that Tiger shot an opening 40 when winning the 1997 Masters by 12.

Pos: 7,137


Jason Scrivener
: Loves this layout. Made semis last year and also top three in 2016 Perth International at Lake Karrinyup. Impressive top six in Dubai two starts ago so I’ll make him skipper.


Ryan Fox
:
Top three in Malaysia last week for the big-hitting Kiwi. Messed up when trying to secure 24th and final matchplay spot last year but should make it through this time.


Paul Peterson
: A win and T11 in his last two starts and looks the sort of steady player who will play hard, bouncy tracks well when on top of his game.


Kiradech Aphibarnrat
: Won the Paul Lawrie Match Play in 2015 and seems to play well everywhere. Closed with 66 in Malaysia last week.


Brett Rumford
:
Last year’s winner dominated both strokeplay and matchplay portions of the event and he looks in good nick again ahead of his defense.


Thorbjorn Olesen
: Former course winner (2014 Perth International) and won the GolfSixes in England last year so has had success in this week’s format too.

 
 
 
Matt Cooper is part of our European team. He contributes to player news, and he’ll share his selections and analysis for the Fantasy Race to Dubai at EuropeanTour.com. He was the winner of the Ladies European Tour’s Fantasy League in 2011.
 
Team Cooper (Team name: NormanStanleyFletcher)
 

Last week: Not a week to remember, but as we've noted before the format means there is no great penalty for getting it massively wrong.


Position
: 611th


Kiradech Aphibarnrat
: Arrives fresh from a final round 66 in Malaysia and a past winner of the Paul Lawrie Match Play.


Thorbjorn Olesen: Course winner who twice striped 67 in Dubai and was in contention with 18 holes to play, just two starts ago.


Paul Peterson
: His Asian Tour win in Myanmar was coming after a fine finish to 2017, which in itself was a good response to losing his ET card. Round three 65 last week shows he's not lost the form.


Ryan Fox
: Third last week, has been ninth on the course and has a win in Western Australia.


Hideto Tanihara
: Fifth last week in Malaysia a nice reminder of what his best can achieve, made the match play rounds last year, a WGC World Match Play semi-finalist.


Satoshi Kodaira
: Giving the 28-year-old, in the form of his life, a go. Two-time winner in Japan last Fall, arrives fresh from back-to-back second-place finishes.
