Dubai, United Arab Emirates (SportsNetwork.com) - Henrik Stenson birdied his final hole on Saturday to close out a 5-under 67 and maintain the lead of the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai.

Stenson, who leads the Race to Dubai standings, finished 54 holes on Jumeirah Golf Estates' Earth Course at 17-under-par 199. He is trying to become the first player to win the PGA Tour's FedEx Cup and Race to Dubai in the same year.

Victor Dubuisson, last week's Turkish Airlines Open winner, fired the low round of the day with an 8-under 64 to claim second place at 16-under 200.

Ian Poulter (66) and Alejandro Canizares (70) shared third at 13-under, while Miguel Angel Jimenez (66) sat alone in fifth at minus-12.

Justin Rose (68) and Lee Westwood (65) are tied for sixth at 11-under 205.

The top nine players in the Race to Dubai standings all have a chance to win the title, but only Stenson, Rose and Graeme McDowell control their own fate. If Stenson, Rose or McDowell win this tournament, they will win the Race to Dubai, regardless of where anyone else finishes.
