Fleetwood will retain his No. 1 Race to Dubai rank win, lose, or draw this week as No. 5 Alex Noren, the next-highest ranked in the field, trails Fleetwood by over €1.8 million.

The Englishman is on an absolute tear this year, rising inside the world top 20 while accumulating as many ranking points as almost anyone on the planet.

Two wins, two runner-up finishes and a solo fourth at the U.S. Open are the recipe for Fleetwood becoming known for more than his long locks.

Fleetwood comes in well rested since tying for 61st at the PGA Championship three weeks ago. He’s riding seven made cuts in a row.

Since gaining and maintaining full European Tour status in 2012, Fleetwood hasn’t missed this event. Can you blame him? His results, starting with most recent read: T49, MC, T5, T9, T19

Not having fully hit his stride as a player until this year, the coupling of past success and current form leads me to believe Fleetwood will only increase his RtD lead that places him nearly €800,000 ahead of No. 2 Sergio García.

That’s unless the next guy in my rankings has something to say about things.
