On The Range at The Omega Dubai Desert Classic
Posted: February 1, 2013
This week's stop is Dubai - as Titleist ambassador Romain Wattel plays a shot towards town!
This is the final leg of three of the European Tour's early season "Desert Swing" - and here's hoping that it's a hat-trick of wins for Titleist golf ball players after Pro V1 loyalist Jamie Donaldson and Pro V1x loyalist Chris Wood won in Abu Dhabi and Qatar respectively!
At 7,316 yards, and playing to a par of 72, the Emirates Golf Club is generally regarded as a tough, but fair, test. Deep rough and firm, fast greens will be the course's main defences.
This week saw continued seeding and testing of the 2013 Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls - and of the 82 (62% of the field) players putting their trust in a Titleist golf ball this week in Dubai, 39 have pegged up the new 2013 Pro V1 or Pro V1x.
And at the time of writing, 12 of the top 12 and ties are Titleist golf ball players.
Defending champion and Titleist ambassador Rafa Cabrera-Bello (at time of writing) is just five shots off the lead and will be looking forward to "moving day" tomorrow!
