Tiger Woods’ return to competitive golf continues in Dubai at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic (2-5 Feb 2017). Ahead of the event he visited the Burj Al Arab, the iconic Dubai landmark where he famously hit balls from the helipad in 2004.

Woods, making his eighth appearance in the tournament that he won in 2006 and 2008, took time out to practice his swing on the terrace and was on the helipad again to take a helicopter tour of the city that in 2019 will become home to a course he is designing. Woods was interviewed by Peter Dawson, former Chief Executive of The R&A and former Secretary of The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews.
