Li Hao­tong Wins the Omega Dubai Clas­sic

HK Golfer - - Divots -

Fol­low­ing four days of en­thralling golf at the Omega Dubai Desert Clas­sic, the “Ma­jor of the Mid­dle East” has con­cluded in vic­tory for Li Hao­tong of China. Li played fin­ished on 23 un­der par, with just a stroke lead over Omega am­bas­sador Rory McIl­roy on the renowned Ma­jlis course at the Emi­rates Golf Club.

The close vic­tory earns Li a tro­phy, win­ner's cheque and a brand-new Omega Sea­mas­ter Aqua Terra 150M Mas­ter Chronome­ter. Driven by the Omega Mas­ter Chronome­ter cal­i­bre 8901 - the el­e­gant 41 mm time­piece fea­tures an 18K Sedna™ gold case, brown leather strap, and 18K Sedna™ gold hands and in­dexes that are coated with white Su­per-Lumi-Nova for su­perb vis­i­bil­ity in all light­ing con­di­tions. The brown sun-brushed dial is dis­tin­guished by a hor­i­zon­tal teak pat­tern in­spired by the wooden decks of lux­ury sail­boats.

Omega Pres­i­dent and CEO Ray­nald Aeschli­mann said: “I’m proud to sin­cerely con­grat­u­late Li Hao­tong on his win and for treat­ing us all to such world class golf. It's been a thrill from the first day to the fi­nal few putts. Omega feels very hon­oured to be part of this fan­tas­tic event, which is a real high­light of the golf­ing year. This has been the per­fect start to 2018 and I wish all the play­ers a fan­tas­tic sea­son ahead."
