Justin Thomas’ two-year dominance of the PGA Tour Money List came to an end in 2019 as Brooks Koepka scooped $9,684,006 and won three tournaments to top the standings, and the bookmakers are backing the American to successfully retain his crown in 2020.

He faces some serious competition though, with Rory McIlroy leading the charge after he also won three tournaments, including the season-ending Tour Championship at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta.

Behind him in the betting but with serious ambitions of topping the Money List are the likes of Dustin Johnson, Jon Rahm, Patrick Cantlay and Xander Schauffele, while it is no major surprise to see that bookmakers are not writing off the possibility of Justin Thomas regaining the crown in 2020.

But right out at 50/1, the bookies are not expecting Tiger Woods to stand up to the rigours of a full PGA Tour campaign and claim the Money List prize for a record-setting 11th time.

Jon Rahm won the Race To Dubai for the first time in his career as the 2019 European Tour season came to a thrilling climax in Dubai.

The 25-year-old Spaniard birdied the final hole of the DP World Tour Championship to pip Tommy Fleetwood to both the tournament title and the tour crown and in 2020 he will look to become only the second man to win back-to-back Race To Dubai titles since it replaced the old Order Of Merit format.

The bookmakers fancy Rahm’s chances of ruling Europe once again in 2020, but he faces plenty of competition and the bookies do not believe that the defending champion is the leading contender for the crown ahead of the start of the season. Instead they have made three-time winner Rory McIlroy their number one pick as he looks to win the Race To Dubai for the first time since his back-to-back successes in 2014 and 2015.

Tommy Fleetwood is unsurprisingly considered a frontrunner after he went agonisingly close in 2019, while the likes of Justin Rose and Matthew Fitzpatrick are also considered serious contenders ahead of two-time winner Henrik Stenson, Bernd Wiesberger, Danny Willett and Patrick Reed.

Jin Young Ko may not have won the season-ending CMW Group Tour Championship, but that did not prevent her from finishing top of the 2019 LPGA Tour Money List thanks to an excellent campaign that saw her win four titles, including two Major crowns.

Ko will be a leading contender for the LPGA Tour season title once again in 2020 but in the ultra-competitive world of women’s golf there will be a whole host of ladies looking to get their hands on the prize, including Jeong Eun Lee Six, Brooke Henderson, Min Jee Lee, Lexi Thompson, and, of course, 2017 champion Sung Hyun Park and two-time winner Ariya Jutanugarn (2016 and 2018).
