The top 60 players in the Race to Dubai tee it up on Thursday at the Earth Course at Jumeirah Golf Estates and the course facing them is very long, a par 72 of 7,675 yards.

All the previous winners of the event are long drivers of the ball so that’s the sort of player we’ll look at this week.

Victor Dubuisson looks like the best value at the top end of the market. He finished 3rd here last year and barring a terrible start to his defence last week in Turkey he may well have retained his title there instead of finishing 15th as he did.

Romain Wattel has a game that should be well suited to this course and he finished 21st on his only visit here. His recent form figures read 4, 6 and 11 and he has a good mix of power hitting and a solid short game. He ranks 2nd to Rory McIlroy on the Oddy Ratings and on stroke average on the European Tour.

Louis Oosthuizen is this week’s value loser South African. 

He has very solid form at the course with two top 10’s and four top 15’s from five starts. Recent form figures of 6 and 14 give us some hope that he might play pain free this week after struggling with injury for much of the past year.
