SHANGHAI (AP) Justin Rose can unseat Rory McIlroy at the top of the Race to Dubai money list with a top-two result in the BMW Masters starting Thursday.

McIlroy, the defending BMW Masters champion, also would need to finish outside the top seven on the Lake Malaren Golf Club course.

With six events remaining in the European Tour season, Rose arrived in China's financial capital trailing McIlroy by $353,000 on the money list.

Having won the European Tour money title in 2007, Rose says it would mean a lot more to earn it this time.
