Rory McIlroy has admitted he does not expect to retain his Race to Dubai crown this week, despite having an outside chance of denying Henrik Stenson. Alexander Mogilny Jersey . McIlroy heads into the season-ending DP World Tour Championship fourth in the standings behind Stenson, Danny Willett and the in-form Alex Noren, but a win could be enough to be crowned European No 1 for the third straight year if the top three struggle at the Jumeirah Golf Estates. Rory McIlroy says hes more concerned about ending the year as the world number one, rather than winning the Race to Dubai title. However, the world No 2 would require Stenson to finish outside the top 45 in the elite 60-player field, with Willett not making the top five and Noren finishing lower than second. McIlroy pipped Willett to the overall title with a dramatic victory over Andy Sullivan in the event last year, but he has effectively ruled out his chances of overhauling Open champion Stenson, who is also a two-time champion in the event. Victory in the FedExCup capped an excellent PGA Tour season for McIlroy Mathematically I can win, but its not going to happen, said McIlroy, when asked about his Race to Dubai hopes. I wouldnt hold my breath. I think the three guys that are ahead of me are playing very good golf, especially the two Swedes, Henrik and Alex.Alex with what hes done over the past few weeks, Henrik has had a fantastic year, and so has Danny, obviously... I dont expect those guys to play badly this week. Im just concentrating on trying to win the golf tournament and if I can do that, Ill be very happy. Rory McIlroy needs an unlikely set of results to retain his Race to Dubai crown McIlroy did not help his cause by opting to pull out of the Turkish Airlines Open earlier this month due to safety fears, but he reiterated that he was comfortable with that course of action.Im very happy with my decision, he added. Ive been here for the last couple of weeks and Ive done a bit of practice, enjoyed myself. So, no, no regrets at all. McIlroy believes Henrik Stenson will be crowned European No 1 McIlroy also insisted he was satisfied with his 2016 campaign overall, despite not managing to add to his four major titles, although he did claim the FedExCup for the first time after winning the Deutsche Bank Championship and the Tour Championship.

I won the Irish Open, which a huge thing personally for me. It mightnt be the biggest tournament in the world, but personally to me in my mind, it is one of the biggest I play all year.That was nice to be able to knock that off - and to win the FedExCup, as well, was big. That was something that I hadnt won before, and to win that, and in the fashion that I did, and winning two of the last three Play-off events over there, that was very satisfying. McIlroy with the Race To Dubai and DP World Tour Championship trophies last year My play in majors was disappointing, missing the cut at the US Open and the PGA. I had a top five at The Open but that was soon forgotten because of what Henrik and Phil did.But majors aside, I feel like its been a pretty good, consistent year. But going into next year, Id like to think that my performances in the majors are going to be better.
