Ahead of the 2011 Dubai World Championship on Thursday and Luke Donald’s attempt to top both money lists, Genworth has unveiled a concept golfer outlining this year’s European Tour Ultimate Performing Golfer.

Genworth Financial, Official Statistics Partner of the European Tour, launched the Ultimate Performing Golfer- a new composite model designed using statistical analysis from across the current European Tour season.

From the accuracy of Donald to the driving distance of Alvaro Quiros, the Ultimate Performing Golfer utilises the key attributes from the leading European Tour players in 2011.

The Ultimate Performing Golfer has been devised using Genworth’s statistical partnership with the European Tour and takes into account the leaders of the Tour categories heading into the tournament.

Included are the likes of Donald, Rory McIlroy, Sergio Garcia and Retief Goosen with a number of players fighting it out to be crowned number one of each category.

The Ultimate Performing Golfer is based on the premise that modern golfers must master not just one but various aspects of the game.

Following his win in the UBS Hong Kong Open, McIlroy has taken over at the top of the Stroke Average Category with a figure of 69.13, but he is being pushed hard for that prestigious title by Donald, Charl Schwartzel.
