The Dubai Desert Classic Golf Tournament
A couple days ago the Dubai Desert Classic was held at the Emirates Golf Club at Emirates Hill Dubai, UAE. I received a free ticket from the golf club that i take classes in which is the Sharjah Golf and Shooting Club. On arrival, I went straight to the driving range area, where I got to watch the professionals practice hitting. Some steps away was the pitching and bunker practice area, where they practiced chipping, pitching, and hitting in the bunker. After that, I watched a couple of pro's tee-off. Eventually came Rory Mcllroy and his tee-off group which also included Martin Keymer. Mcllroy is currently the worlds Number 2 golfer! We followed his group around the eighteen holes for around 8 hours in total, in between rounds, I ate lunch at the various canteens they had around the course. The winner of the Tournament was Cabrera Bello with the score of -18.
