GOLF ICONS ASSEMBLE TO CELEBRATE 50 YEARS OF THE UNITED ARAB EMIRATES AT THE 2021 OMEGA DUBAI DESERT CLASSIC
As the United Arab Emirates marks its 50th anniversary in 2021, golf superstars Collin Morikawa, Justin Rose, Tommy Fleetwood and Ian Poulter kick-started the Golden Jubilee celebrations with a 50-foot putting challenge on the 18th green at Emirates Golf Club ahead of the OMEGA Dubai Desert Classic, which gets underway from January 28-31.
The 32nd staging of the OMEGA Dubai Desert Classic – the longest running professional tournament in the Middle East – sees a world-class field set to compete for one of the most prestigious titles in the sport.
OMEGA ambassador Morikawa is making his debut in the event and is enjoying the sights and sounds of his first taste of Emirates Golf Club.
“It’s always fun to be a part of any kind of celebration and the 50th anniversary of the United Arab Emirates is clearly a cause for a big celebration,” said Morikawa, 23, who emerged as a Major champion last year with victory at the US PGA Championship. “This is a tournament I’ve been looking forward to for a while and hopefully I can make it a memorable one and take home the trophy in what is an historic year for the UAE.”
Simon Corkill, Executive Tournament Director, said: “The UAE Golden Jubilee is a milestone occasion for the country and we are delighted to shine a light on its importance with a gathering of international players on the iconic Majlis course ahead of the OMEGA Dubai Desert Classic. Since 1989 this tournament has delivered a great number of memories, and with an array of superstars – such as the players involved in this photocall – our 2021 event is sure to produce another exciting climax.”

SERGIO GARCIA LOOKING FOR FAST START TO 2021 AT THE OMEGA DUBAI DESERT CLASSIC
With qualifying for this year’s Ryder Cup high on Sergio Garcia’s agenda, the former OMEGA Dubai Desert Classic winner knows a good week at Emirates Golf Club could provide the spark he needs to help cement a tenth career appearance for Team Europe.
“This is obviously a course that I enjoy and I like playing – and I’ve done well here in the past which definitely can help,” said Garcia, who held off Henrik Stenson to win by three strokes in 2017 before later going on to win that year’s Masters.
“This year is a big year with a lot of big tournaments to be played with The Ryder Cup, the Olympics and the Majors, so we’ll see what this week holds.
“Everyone knows how much I love The Ryder Cup and I would love to be a part of a few more – and that’s obviously one of the biggest goals of the year for me.”
Play gets underway tomorrow and Garcia will be joined for the opening two rounds by Ryder Cup teammate Tyrrell Hatton and American star Collin Morikawa, who is making his OMEGA Dubai Desert Classic debut.
The 23-year-old Californian shot into the limelight last year with victory at the US PGA Championship in San Francisco and is keen to enjoy just as much success in 2021.
“It’s exciting to come out here and compete with some guys that I know and some guys that I’ve obviously seen a lot, but I’m here solely focused on trying to win this week and getting off to a good start tomorrow,” said Morikawa. “Off the tee, this course is very demanding and the rough is up in a lot of places.
“The fairways are pretty narrow, so getting the ball into the fairway off the tee is going to be key. The greens are pretty small, so hopefully I can get the ball in the fairway, hit some good iron shots and then make some putts.”
