World No 1 Rory McIlroy says he has enough motivation to do well at this week's Dubai World Tour Championship, even though he has already secured the European Tour's Race to Dubai crown

Ahead of the $8 million season-ending tournament at the Earth course of Jumeirah Golf Estates here, McIlroy said: “I am obviously very proud and very honoured to have won the Race to Dubai this year. I’ve had four go’s at it since 2009. 

I came close a couple of times, and you know, it was great to be able to do it this year. It’s been a phenomenal year, and I’ve still got one more tournament left and I want to try to finish the season strong. I really want to play well this week.”
