Woods to tee it up at Desert Classic
TIGER Woods will compete in the European Tour’s Dubai Desert Classic next month, the former world No 1 said yesterday. “I’ve always enjoyed playing in Dubai and it’s fantastic to see how the city has grown phenomenally from when I first started playing there,” Woods said on the event website www.dubaidesertclassic.com. Woods, sidelined by back pain for the past 15 months, will launch his official comeback at the January 26-29 Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines in southern California, the PGA Tour event announced. The Desert Classic at Emirates Golf Club runs from February 2 to 5.
