Matt Wallace shoots 65 to lead at halfway stage

Fleetwood applies pressure on Molinari Wallace leads in Dubai

Fleetwood applies pressure on Molinari Wallace leads in Dubai

The only player in the field who can prevent Molinari finishing top of the order of merit is his good friend Tommy Fleetwood.

"Look, everyone has to look out for themselves and next year I'm looking out for me", McIlroy told reporters after shooting three-under-par 69 in the first round at the European Tour's season-ending DP World Tour Championship in Dubai on Thursday.

"With the limited schedule that I play over here on the European Tour, to have a chance to go out and finish the year off right and win a golf tournament, give myself a little early Christmas gift of a trophy, would be unbelievable", Reed said.

Although the tournament remains poised for an exciting finish, the fate of the Race to Dubai was nearly sealed on the penultimate day of the season when Tommy Fleetwood, needing to win to retain the title over Francesco Molinari, slumped to a 74 and fell eight shots behind the leaders. I just haven't capitalised on those chances. "I think you kind of know when your time's up".

The 28-year-old Englishman, who was fined 3,000 pounds ($3,800) for slow play in the first round, shot a 7-under 65 Friday for a one-stroke lead over Danny Willett (67), Jordan Smith (68) and Adrian Otaegui (68).

Wallace, who is chasing his fourth European Tour title of the season, started the second round in red-hot form with back-to-back birdies on the opening two holes before picking up two more shots on the front nine to go out in 32.

Howell ends 11-year title drought to deny record-breaking Rodgers

He's tied for sixth with Mcllroy, South Africa's Dean Burmester and Thailand's Kiradech Aphibarnrat as Molinari's 73 left him tied for 27th with Dunne on three-under. "There were times when I was despising golf because it was like Groundhog Day; turn up, be in pain, miss the cut and repeat". "I've had chances and missed them so am still trying to knock on that door and win a tournament, the same as everybody is".

"It feels the same as if I'm back home playing the big events", he said. "I will be going out there to make a few birdies and see what happens and try to get a bit of form on the weekend going into next week".

The former world number one's momentum was halted with a three-putt bogey from long range on the third, but the 29-year-old nearly holed his tee shot on the par-three sixth and tapped in for his third birdie of the day.

After making birdie at the seventh and eighth holes, Wallace made a 20-foot par putt at the ninth.

Harrington's first round 75 was a handicap but while he birdied four holes in a row from the fifth, he could only par his last ten holes for a four-under 66 that proved one shot too many.
