Golf in the Gulf - Eye on Dubai

Tiger's there already ooo. He flew out last night after his awesome win at the Buick Invitational. By now he's probably checking out progress on his fabulous Arabian Gulf golf complex, Tiger Woods Dubai, set to open in the 4th quarter of 2009.

I'm sure he's also eagerly anticipating the start of Dubai Desert Classic week which kicks off tomorrow. Tiger will meet up with a slew of the worlds top players at the lush Emirates Golf Club, including defending champion and Dubai "local", Henrik Stenson, Colin Montgomerie, who also has ties to Dubai and would be rival Ernie Els.

Oh and the 12 strong field will also include the fabulously fashionable Ian Poulter. No doubt about it, the Arabian desert is going to sizzle this week.
