Tiger Woods’ return to competitive golf continues in Dubai at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic from February 2-5.
Ahead of the event he visited the Burj Al Arab, the iconic Dubai landmark where he famously hit balls off the helipad in 2004.
Woods, making his eighth appearance in the tournament that he won in 2006 and 2008, took time out to practise his swing on the terrace and was on the helipad again to take a helicopter tour of the city that in 2019 will become home to a course he is designing.
How do you think Tiger will fare at the Dubai Classic?
Ahead of his appearance at this week’s Omega Dubai Desert Classic, the 41-year-old 14-time major winner watched the Swiss and Williams claim singles titles in Melbourne from afar – and congratulated them both with an exchange of messages after.
Woods specifically discussed Federer during his pre-event press conference at the Emirates Golf Club – where he commended the 35-year-old’s longevity in the game and said the fellow Nike athlete was an inspiration.
