The DP World Tour 2024 saw the commitment of South African players, in particular Louis Oosthuizen, winner of the Mauritius Open with a score of 271 (68 69 65 69, -17) and second player of LIV Golf after Dean Burmester. Among the Azzurri, Renato Paratore and Andrea Pavan ranked 18th with a score of 280 (-8), continuing their good season in which they always appeared in the top 20.

Guido Migliozzi ranked 40th with a score of 285 (-3), while Matteo Manassero, despite an excellent first round, finished in 66th place with 144 (par) and did not make the cut. However, mention must also be made of the feat of Joaquin Niemann, also from LIV Golf, in Australia.

In this way, the Arab Super League once again demonstrates its strength in the DP World Tour.
