It’s the business end of the season on the DP World Tour, with just three events until the season concludes.

This week, it’s a trip to Portugal and the Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course for the Portugal Masters. That’s before the players take a week off, before heading to South Africa, and finally Dubai.

It’s all eyes on the Race to Dubai standings, with Rory McIlroy’s lead looking tough to overcome. That being said, there will be plenty players at the other end of the standings looking for a good week in Portugal to secure their playing privileges for next season.

Last year, Thomas Pieters was victorious, on a golf course where birdies and eagles are the name of the game. Last year, the Belgian made it to 19-under-par, at a course where power is a valuable asset to have.

Let’s take a look at all the details ahead of the week getting underway…

Portugal Masters details

Course: Dom Pedro Victoria, Vilamoura

The bunkered Bet

Nicolai Højgaard: Big hitters tend to do well around here, and Nicolai is certainly not short off the tee. The Dane has been in strong form recently, but hasn’t picked up a win in 2022. This could be his week.
