JOY HOPES TO RE­TURN TO MENA TOUR WIN­NING WAYS

7 Days in Dubai - - SPORT -

With two run­ner-up fin­ishes in the last three weeks, Luke Joy hopes a victory is just around the cor­ner as he pre­pares to play in the As­corp Golf Cit­i­zen Abu Dhabi Open at Yas Links. Af­ter los­ing the Dubai Creek Open and Golf Cit­i­zen Clas­sic in play­offs, the 28-year-old hopes to im­press on his ‘home course’ in the UAE cap­i­tal. “The goal is to even­tu­ally get into con­tention week in and week out and start win­ning golf tour­na­ments,” said Joy. “I feel like I am in the zone and I have the self­be­lief in my game which is the key. “I am pretty fa­mil­iar with con­di­tions at Yas Links, but still you have to ex­e­cute your shots and play as well as you can since the stan­dard of golf on the MENA Golf is very high.” Try­ing to deny Joy will be fel­low Englishmen Zane Scot­land, Lee Cor­field, Andrew Marshall and Car­los Bal­maseda, all mul­ti­ple win­ners of the tour.
