Rory McIlroy has won a fifth Race to Dubai title after American Max Homa claimed victory on the international stage for the very first time.
Homa, who was a bright light in an otherwise underwhelming Team USA Ryder Cup side, shot a 6-under 66 to claim the Nedbank Golf Challenge in South Africa on the DP World Tour.
The American finished at 19-under for the tournament, four strokes ahead of one of Luke Donald's rookies - Nicolai Hojgaard.
Homa, who has also won six PGA Tour victories, carded a final round that included six birdies, an eagle and two bogeys.
The victory was all but assured after he pulled away from the field with birdies at 15 and 16 at Gary Player's course in Sun City.
Elsewhere, Justin Thomas finished in fourth on 12-under.
Nicolai's twin brother Rasmus, as well as Thorbjorn Olesen, Sebastian Soderberg, Hennie Du Plessis, Dan Bradbury and Ryo Hisatsune finished inside the top-10.
Homa picked up €961,124.05 for the victory.
His win means the aforementioned McIlroy, 34, cannot be caught in the Race to Dubai Rankings.
It is the fifth time he has finished top of the order of merit on the former European Tour.
The Ulsterman claimed the honour in 2012, 2014, 2015 and 2022.
He is scheduled to compete at the season ending DP World Tour Championship, where the top 50 players will compete in a $10m prize purse tournament.
