February 10 until 13

The 22nd annual Dubai Desert Classic golf tournament, which kicks off on February 8 has already confirmed a star-studded line-up, which includes the current champion from Spain, Miguel Angel Jimenez, some of the world’s top players from the European Tour and, of course, Tiger Woods from the US.

In a statement released by tournament promoters, Woods said that he wants to win back the title he once held back in 2008, adding that the quality field would force him to play his best game.

Said Woods: “The level of competition has always been extremely high so I know I’ll have to play my best golf if I’m going to regain my title. It’s a great venue, the course is always in immaculate condition and the weather reminds me of back home in Florida.”

The players are competing on the Majlis course for $2.5 million. Tickets start at Dh170.
