Dubai Desert Classic This Week On The European Tour

The European Tour stays in the desert this week to play the Dubai Desert Classic at the Emirates Golf Club (Majlis Course) in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Once again there's a great field at a European Tour event except this week's even better with the headlining of world No. 1 Tiger Woods.

Tiger won this event in 2006, and shared third place at this tournament last year. Tiger has been here 5 of the last 8 years, good for the tournament obviously(do I hear appearance fees)

Last year Henrik Stenson fired four rounds in the 60s, including a final-round 68, to hold off Ernie Els by a single stroke. Woods also carded four rounds in the 60s, but ended two back.

Els has a stellar record at the event, finishing in the top eight in all nine of his appearances. He is 157-under par in those nine starts.

In addition to Woods and Els, Adam Scott and Stenson will be on hand this week. That gives this field four of the top 13 players in the world as well as the winners from last week's European Tour event (Scott by three over Stenson at the Qatar Masters) and PGA Tour event (Woods by eight at the Buick Invitational).

The Golf Channel will have four hours of coverage each day. You will also be able to catch coverage online at MyP2P.
