european tours - europe11 - May 12, 2011

0 Euros: The amount Danny Lee and Shane Lowry banked between them when winning the Johnnie Walker Classic and 3 Irish Open respectively. Both amateurs when they scored their maiden European Tour wins they subsequently turned pro and are slowly coming to terms with their new status.

Number one: Lee Westwood who won two of his last four starts of the season to clinch the Race to Dubai title. His consistency in the last half of the season was extraordinary: two wins, another three top three finishes and a total of 10 top nine finishes in 12 events from July.

Number Two: Rory McIlroy who in only his second full season of professional golf came so close to withstanding Westwood's late charge for the number one spot. He topped and tailed his year nicely - four early top five finishes (including a maiden win in Dubai) started the season well and then he concluded with six top seven efforts in his final seven tournaments.

Three wins: Gregory Bourdy's European Tour career total after claiming the Hong Kong Open in November. In doing so he became the first Frenchman to win in three consecutive seasons.

Four second place finishes: Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano's 2009 season total. In April he was actually the runner-up for three tournaments on the trot: at the Estoril Open de Portugal, the China Open and the Ballantine's Championship. He completed the unwanted but lucrative quartet in the Scottish Open at Loch Lomond.
