The Star Early Edition - - SPORT -

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.
