Tiger comeback continues in Dubai Desert Classic

Two-time Omega Dubai Desert Classic champion Tiger Woods is back in action at the Emirates Golf Club this week as he continues his comeback after 15 months out of the game through injury.
The 14-time Major champion remains one of the biggest draws in sport, despite his current position of 666th in the Official World Golf Ranking, and excitement is building around the course where Woods tasted victory in in 2006 and 2008.
Woods will be up against an old foe when he tees up at the Majlis Course for the eighth time, and the first since 2014.
Tiger will tee it up in the company of defending Omega Dubai Desert Classic and current Masters champion Danny Willett and his countryman Matthew Fitzpatrick in rounds one and two over the Majilis Course.

Major champions Martin Kaymer, Henrik Stenson and their Ryder Cup team-mates, Rafa Cabrera Bello, Sergio Garcia, Andy Sullivan, Lee Westwood and Chris Wood, are among the other headline names in a star-studded field.
Player quotes
Tiger Woods: “It's great to be back. I haven't been back here in Dubai in a few years and to see the amount of growth that's transpired is pretty remarkable. The golf course is about the same. Only change I think is 18, playing with a different angle but the golf course is the same. It's in great condition.
“I'm feeling pretty good. I'm tired. My mom called me about two in the morning last night and woke me up, and asked me how I was doing. I said, "Mom, you realise there's a nine-hour time difference?" 

I'll get a good rest this afternoon and be ready for tomorrow.
