Race to Dubai[edit]

Since 2009, the European Tour's money list has been known as the "Race to Dubai". It is based on money earned during the season and is calculated in euro, with earnings from tournaments that award prize money in other currencies being converted at the exchange rate available the week of the event. The following table shows the final top-10 in the 2014 standings and includes the bonus pool and bonus points from the "Final Series" (earnings converted to points before the Final Series).[2]
