Top 5 shots from the Dubai Desert Classic
The best golf shots from 2016's Middle East major at Emirates Golf Club.Neil Churchill February 9, 2017
The Dubai Desert Classic ended last Sunday and with it, the 2016 Desert Swing. This year the much-loved Spaniard Sergio Garcia took home the huge Dallah Trophy and a cheque for AED 1.6 million.
It was a memorable tournament this year but for some unfortunate reasons. Rory McIlroy's persistent rib injury kept him from playing while Tiger Woods, still in the very early days of his return to golf, pulled out after the first round with back spasms.
Day 2 was postponed mid-way through as strong winds uprooted trees and blew sand across the course, meaning Day 3 was a rush of finishing the second round and completing the third.
In case you missed it all watch the top five shots above, including two from the eventual winner.
