Italian Open starts countdown to Dubai
With the FedEx Cup at its climax, across the Atlantic, the Race to Dubai is gearing up for the final stretch with just 10 tournaments left to play before crossing the finishing line at the DP World Tour Championship.
The Italian Open, which tees off on Thursday, will start the final stretch and a scramble is set to ensue as players try to play themselves into the top 60 of money earners.
Only the top 60 money earners get to go to Dubai.
The Italian Open will be broadcast exclusively live on SuperSport and in HD starting on Thursday.
For South Africans Thomas Aiken (66), Jaco van Zyl (75), Keith Horne (87), Darren Fichardt (99), Hennie Otto (101), Tjaart van der Walt (106) and Garth Mulroy (113) the scramble has already begun as they find themselves just out of the top sixty.
Richard Sterne, who currently occupies 39th position, is the only South African inside the top sixty looking to do the Italian job.
