Speaking about his Dubai trip, Woods said: “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."

“It was great winning in Dubai in 2006 and 2008. When you win in Dubai, you know you’ve beaten an outstanding field. The support from the fans is also just wonderful."
Woods is an amazing 92-under par for the 28 rounds he has played at the Majlis course since making his debut in 2001.

Mohamed Juma Buamaim, vice chairman and CEO of golf in DUBAi, added: "We are naturally delighted and proud that Tiger Woods is joining us for the 2017 Omega Dubai Desert Classic and, like every one, I also look forward to seeing his trademark fist-pumps.


“Having one of the world’s greatest golfers play in your event is something many tournament organisers dream of; so for us to be able to welcome him to the Majlis Course for the eighth time is a major boost for golf in the Middle East, especially Dubai."
