Rory McIlroy could move to the top of the European Tour money list on Sunday.

The Omega European Masters in Switzerland, which begins today, is the first counting event in the race for the Ryder Cup, although the 20-year-old can be forgiven for being more focused on the Race to Dubai.

If McIlroy can become the second-youngest player, after Seve Ballesteros, to lift the Harry Vardon Trophy he will pick up a prize currently billed at $2m (£1.25m).
