The Spaniard secured a first-ever Major crown at Augusta earlier this year and heads into the DP World Tour Championship in third place in the Race To Dubai standings, with Tommy Fleetwood leading the way and Justin Rose in second.

Garcia needs to win the tournament to have any chance of overhauling the Englishmen, but he is not placing too much importance on that target as a barometer of the campaign as a whole.

He told the official European Tour website: “What I’m going to do is I’m going to go out there and try to do what I do every week – which is to play the best I can play and give myself the best option of winning.

“I can’t control what the other people do. Obviously both Tommy and Justin are playing really well and I’m not expecting them to finish 40th or 50th.

“To be totally honest, I see a two per cent chance of me winning The Race to Dubai, but I’m fine with it. I can live with it. It’s been a great year and that’s not going to change.

“It would be amazing (to win the Race to Dubai), but like I said earlier, even if it doesn’t happen, it doesn’t mean that my year is not going to be as good as it’s been.”
