Jon Rahm bows out of this year's final event in Dubai

His health, and quality time with family, are what matter most to him at this time

From BBC Sport:

World number one Jon Rahm has withdrawn from the DP World Tour Championship in order to spend time with his family. The Spaniard's withdrawal rules him out of the running to win the Race to Dubai, in which he currently sits third behind Collin Morikawa and Billy Horschel.

Rahm has had a rollercoaster season, twice testing positive for Covid-19.

"I have come to the difficult decision not to travel to Dubai next week," he said.

"The demands of a long season with many ups and downs has taken a lot out of me. I feel I need to take time to recharge my batteries while spending quality time with my family."  Read more

“I would like to take this opportunity to wish DP World and the European Tour all the best for the season-ending event, which is always such a special tournament.
