What an eventful past two days! We've been unlucky with the weather, and it took a turn for the worse on Friday, forcing many people to go home early and the sun to hide much longer than I would have liked. HOWEVER, things have been great! This is the first time I cover a golf championship. I'm excited to have been able to document such an important event on the Dubai calendar of activities.
It was quite an eye opening experience. My favorite thing about golf is how everything sits still and quiets down as the players get ready to swing, and the sudden bursts of energy that ensue the minute the sound of the clicking ball is heard all around! It always made me chuckle, and I was impressed with how people actually obliged! The event was really well organized, the grounds of the Emirates Golf Club are jaw-droppingly beautiful, like a scene from a movie with so much to take in and wonder about.
You would have probably heard by now that Tiger Woods has withdrawn from the tournament. It's been great having a chance to cover him during Round 1, including some exclusive shots of him leaving the organizers' office yesterday!
Here are some highlights from the first two days. Wishing all the players best of luck as they go on to compete in Round 3! Thanks so much to Mr. Stephane Barras and CaddiePlayer for the wonderful opportunity, and I look forward to covering more similar events in the future!
