Shot of the year?

Take a bow Patrick Reed. Take into account the situation – this eagle gave him a share of the lead – and this shot has to be considered one of the best of the season.

We don’t need to say any more, just watch the clip below!

Gallacher sneaks into Dubai

Following Sergio Garcia’s decision not to play in the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai this week, Stephen Gallacher, 61st in the Race to Dubai standings, will take his place, joining fellow Scots Marc Warren and Richie Ramsay in the field.

Of course, Dubai has been the scene of some Gallacher’s finest achievements in the game, entering the record books by winning back-to-back at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic in 2013 and 2014.

Rory Danny

Rory or Danny?

With just 1,613 points separating Rory McIlroy and Danny Willett and a massive 649,386 points separating Willett from third-placed Justin Rose, it looks like a straight shootout between the top two to claim the Harry Vardon Trophy.

Willett, who has won twice in the season at the Nedbank Golf Challenge and Omega European Masters, is searching for the title for the first time, while McIlroy is looking to lift the trophy for a third time in four years.

Here’s a look at the Race to Dubai top ten:

What on earth is hat?

Inbee Park closed the gap on Lydia Ko as world No.1 with a comfortable three-shot victory at the Lorena Ochoa Invitational – her fifth win of a tremendous year which also included major wins at the Ricoh Women’s British Open and the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship.

Her reward? $200,000 and the strangest of trophy and hat combos! Thoughts?

Park and Ko are now set to go head-to-head for the CME Group Tour Championship in Florida this week.
