The opportunity to emulate his idol Seve Ballesteros is being eyed by jon Rahm.
Rahm, trying to win the season-finale for another period, birdied four of his final nine holes to place a 66 at Jumeriah Golf Estates and combine Mike Lorenzo-Vera at the peak of the leaderboard.
Victory for Rahm can see him join Ballesteros since the sole Spanish gamers to win the Rush to Dubai and also the European Tour Order of Merit, supplying Bernd Wiesberger finishes out of the top two, with all the world No 5 hopeful of finishing the year as European No 1.
Gives me goosebumps to think about that [winning the Hurry Dubai], Rahm told Sky Sports. As a Spaniard, whenever you join or youve got the chance to put your name onto a list where there is just 1 name and that title is Seve (Ballesteros), it is fairly impactful.
Its really emotional for all of us. To believe not even Sergio (Garcia) or Miguel ??ngel (Jimenez) or even Ollie (Jose Maria Olazabal) or a number of other terrific players can get it done.
It is tough to feel I have the chance to be the second, but Im just going to attempt and enjoy the day. Hopefully I can keep this going tomorrow for 18 more holes and also be the last person standing.
Fleetwood also stays in the hunt to win the Rush to Dubai using a 70, for the second time in three years.
Even though a runner-up finish would be sufficient if Rahm doesnt end the week with a fourth Rolex Series title Another success in as many starts would see Fleetwood top the standings, so long as Wiesberger stays outside the two.
One thing I probably have not done great in the past is you misjudge exactly what you believe a winning score might be or you believe guys will keep going , Fleetwood said. You dont know what is going to happen on a Sunday.
Whatever you can do is play with your golfing and hit your shots, and then get the best score you can and see whether thats good . Tomorrow it will go out there, trying my very best.
Theres a few more scenarios. Theres 1 tournament going on and then there is the Race to Dubai. I think that its only an extra challenge, that is all. Thus far, I feel like I have done a terrific job of this.
See the DP World Tour Championship and the Rush to Dubai season closing dwell on Sunday am on Sky Sports Main Event along with Sky Sports Golf!
