Cape Town - South African golfers Branden Grace and Louis Oosthuizen have cashed in on the lucrative $5 million Race to Dubai bonus pool, which is shared among the final top 10 of the season.

On Sunday, 22-year-old Matthew Fitzpatrick birdied the final hole to win the DP World Tour Championship by a shot at the Jumeirah Golf Estates in Dubai.

Only two South Africans finished in the top 10 of the Race to Dubai standings, as reigning Open Championship winner Henrik Stenson clinched his second Race of Dubai title.

SA’s No 1, Grace, finished seventh in the standings with 2 098 915 points earning him $350 000 (R4.6 million).

Meanwhile, 2010 Open Championship winner, Oosthuizen took home $250 000 (R3.5 million) after edging out England’s Chris Wood to secure a 10th-place finish with 1 938 370 points.

Grace finished tied 27th at seven-under par in Dubai, while Oosthuizen finished in a tie in 46th place at three-under par.

2011 Masters champion Charl Schwartzel finished 21st in the Race to Dubai standings, despite finishing third in Dubai with a 14-under-par, three shots behind Fitzpatrick.
