Singh to play Abu Dhabi

The Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority (ADTA) announced today that Vijay Singh, ranked World Number Two, will play the inaugural Abu Dhabi Golf Championship to be held at the Abu Dhabi Golf Club from January 19 – 22, 2006.

Surprisingly, for one of the most widely travelled golfers in the game, Vijay has never played in the Gulf before. Commenting on his decision to add Abu Dhabi to his long list of countries visited, Vijay said: “I have heard good things about Abu Dhabi and the golf course and am looking forward to seeing it for myself in January. With players like Sergio, Monty, John Daly and Thomas Björn already entered, it looks like it’ll be a tough tournament – but that’s how I like them!”.

In all, there will be 120 players in the field for the Abu Dhabi Championship, which is offering US$2 million in prize money and will be televised world wide.


Should be interesting no????

Most assuredly, the United Arab Emirates is strongly becoming a major mover in the Golfing world. The Gulf region is exploding with quality Golf courses, professional tournaments and more and more prize money

The United Arab Emirates is an up and coming powerhouse in the Golf course/tournament world. They are offering more and more money each year in their tournaments.
