The gaggle of golfers sharing the lead at the Dubai Desert Classic represent 42 combined European Tour wins between them, setting the stage for an extremely exciting Sunday at Emirates Golf Course.
At 11 under, in a four-way tie for the lead is Europe's number one Lee Westwood, along with two talented Spaniards; affable Alvaro Quiros and colorful Cigar Aficionado cover model, Miguel Angel Jimenez. Then there's Asian number one Thongchai Jaidee, who led going into the third round. The forty-year-old former paratrooper feels he's in the best shape of his life and... inspired by Y.E.Yang's 2009 PGA Championship win... has set his sights on a major for 2010.
And... as if this formidable foursome weren't enough, Rory McIlroy is just two back and followed closely by credible contenders like Edoardo Molinari, Martin Kaymer and Paul Casey.
As for Tom Watson... in Dubai for the first time... he shares 29th place with Henrik Stenson and Robert Karlsson, among others. And from the looks of it he... and his wife, Hilary... have had a pretty awesome time sightseeing.
