2014 European Tour

The 2014 European Tour was the sixth edition of the Race to Dubai and the 43rd season of golf tournaments since the European Tour officially began in 1972. Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy was named Golfer of the Year and Brooks Koepka of the United States Rookie of the Year.


The table below shows the 2014 European Tour schedule which began with five events in late 2013.[1]

Events from 2013 that were not on the 2014 schedule were the Avantha Masters and the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles (hosting the 2014 Ryder Cup, will return in 2015).

New for the 2014 schedule were the NH Collection Open, Made in Denmark, D+D Real Czech Masters tournaments and the EurAsia Cup team event between the Europe Tour and the Asian Tour.

The Ballantine's Championship moved from South Korea to Singapore and was renamed as The Championship at Laguna National.

Race to Dubai

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]
