Scored 39 Today!

So today I played at a fantastic golf course in Dubai - and I think I would have to say my favourite although I have only played there a few times - Al Badia Golf Course run by Intercontinental at Dubai Festival City. And I played my best golf in a long time! The surroundings are beautiful with lots of birdlife including huge herons. The course is really well kept and of course the weather was stunning! For ladies it is a 5,400 yard par 72 and for men a 7,300 yard course. Lots of water to get round and so a challenge as well but was extremely happy with my 39 points:-)

Tiger Woods Announces His Return to Golf at the Masters

So Tiger Woods has announced that he will return to competitive golf at the Masters at Augusta in April. I have to admit I was a bit surprised about this. From his press conference a few weeks ago I thought the implication was that he would not return to golf for a few months, if at all this year. However, what better golf tournament for his comeback than the Masters? One advantage for him is that the paparazzi will not be there as only accredited sports and golf reporters are allowed in. Maybe he has chosen the Masters as his golf return so that he can be somewhat cocooned within the tournament and can focus purely on his golf for the time he is there. I can imagine there will, however, be hoards of eager spectators on the fairways and greens, eager for a glimpse of the champion golfer on his eagerly awaited return.(picture from my collection)
