DP World gives used golf balls second life with first-of-its kind shipping container
DP World, the leading provider of smart supply chain solutions and title partner of the newly named DP World Tour, has created a unique shipping container that will collect and redistribute used golf balls during the 2022 DP World Tour season, giving them a second life.
Travelling through DP World’s global logistics infrastructure and network, the container will visit six DP World Tour events. Fans will be invited to donate used and unwanted golf balls, which will be redistributed to organisations that are championing golf from the grassroots up, to help grow the game globally.
By launching this campaign, DP World will not only support the development of grassroots golf but will also shine a light on how the increasing popularity of the game and the pandemic-induced supply chain challenges have impacted the sport industry.
The container, which is made from a repurposed 20-foot shipping container, can house as many as 200,000 golf balls and will weigh approximately 12 tonnes when full.

John Rahm voted Golfer of the Month for November presented by DP World
Jon Rahm has been crowned Golfer of the Month presented by DP World for the second month in a row after receiving 56.6% of the public vote. Rahm won the season-ending DP World Tour Championship for the third time in November to seal a record fifth Rolex Series title.
The Spaniard returned to The Earth Course at Jumeirah Golf Estates for the first time since his win in 2019 when he defeated a red-hot Rory McIlroy and Tommy Fleetwood down the stretch.
This time round, the two-time champion started the week in steady fashion, opening with a two-under-par round of 70 to sit in a tie for 14th. Rahm made a move on Friday with a 66, before following that up with bogey free 65 on Saturday to open a one-shot lead over fellow U.S. Open winner Matt Fitzpatrick heading into the last day of the 2022 season.
A final round 67 gave Rahm a two-shot victory over a charging Tyrrell Hatton, who finished with a best of the day 66.
Making it on the DP World Tour | The Challenge Tour Graduates
The fifth and final episode of this season of The Graduates, a year-long series following the 2021 Challenge Tour graduates as they look to adapt, thrive and survive on the DP World Tour, sees five graduates make the final event of the DP World Tour season - the DP World Tour Championship.
In a chance to reflect on what has been an exceptional breakthrough year, Oliver Bekker, Ewen Ferguson, Hurly Long, Yannik Paul and Marcel Schneider all took time to look back at the many successes, near-misses and learnings from the 2022 season.
Ferguson was unquestionably one of the breakout stars of 2022, securing his maiden DP World Tour title at the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters and lifting another trophy later in the year at the ISPS Handa World Invitational presented by AVIV Clinics in Northern Ireland. He almost made it a hat-trick of wins as he finished second at the Made in HimmerLand three weeks later.
Yannik Paul became the second 2021 Challenge Tour graduate to win on the DP World Tour this year after he birdied the final hole to win the Mallorca Golf Open last month. He started his DP World Tour career with a top ten at the Joburg Open. Another four followed, including finishing second at the Soudal Open before his maiden victory.
Another of three Germans set to feature at the DP World Tour Championship, Hurly Long finished third at the Ras Al Khaimah Classic and second in Kenya in just his third and fourth events of the season. Since then, he has added a further six top tens, including both the Barbasol Championship and Barracuda Championship which were open to DP World Tour members due to the strategic alliance with the PGA TOUR.
Oliver Bekker graduated from the Challenge Tour last year after finishing seventh on the Road to Mallorca. He quickly established himself as a top-ten machine on the DP World Tour, finishing in the top ten in six of eight events from February into the start of May, including a runner-up finish at the Catalunya Championship after losing out in the play-off to Adri Arnaus.
Marcel Schneider recovered from missing his first six cuts of the season to seal three consecutive top tens in Belgium, Netherlands and Germany in May and June. Three further top tens have since followed, with Schneider not missing a cut since he withdrew from the Cazoo Open supported by Gareth Bale in early August, as well as making his Major Championship debut this season.
Fantasy DP World Tour
The 2023 DP World Tour Fantasy game has launched – with the 2023 season-long winner set to receive a once-in-a-lifetime prize that turns fantasy into reality.
Whoever finishes in first place will be treated to a trip to the 2024 DP World Tour Championship in Dubai – the season-ending tournament on the DP World Tour schedule. When there, they will receive tickets to watch all the action and receive a private lesson from a top DP World Tour professional on the driving range, hitting balls alongside the world’s best players as they prepare for the tournament. The lucky winner will then take on the challenge of playing the famous Earth Course at Jumeirah Golf Estates the day after the world’s best players have battled it out to win the DP World Tour Championship and the season-long Race to Dubai Rankings in Partnership with Rolex.
The Official DP World Tour Fantasy game allows fans from all over the world to compete against each other in predicting the top six players at each tournament during the season, with weekly prizes on offer. Fans can also challenge family, friends, colleagues or followers by creating their own private or public mini league, or by joining one of the many leagues from local TV broadcasters and DP World Tour partners. Other highlights for 2023 include the launch of the Rolex Series Standings – a separate leader board for the five Rolex Series events with additional prizes on offer.
Speaking about the launch and the once-in-a-lifetime prize, Max Hamilton, Commercial and Consumer Director of the European Tour group, said: “Previous editions of our Fantasy game have proved extremely popular with our global fan base and for 2023 we wanted to up the stakes and offer a prize to the season-long winner that turns fantasy into reality. Getting the chance to visit the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai, have your swing analysed by a top DP World Tour professional, and then play the famous Earth Course in Dubai, is a money can’t buy experience. Best of luck to all those competing throughout the 2023 season.”
