Another Tiger-Rory Showdown

This weekend, if any of the players in the Omega Dubai Desert Classic should be stupid-lucky enough to bang a 325-yard drive onto the green and into the cup of the 325-yard 17th hole at the Emirates Golf Club, the tournament organizers—in celebration of the event’s silver anniversary—will write a check for $2.5 million. That’s equal to the entire purse for the event. A wounded Tiger, fresh off his ignominious 79 at Torrey Pines, will be there, not because of the hole-in-one gimmick or the anniversary or because he’s a former champion, but because the organizers have already written him a check in excess of the $2.5 mil simply for showing up. Nonetheless, it will be good drama watching him and Rory (who won his first pro event here) play head-to-head over the first two days, if for no other reason than to see if either of them can make an early statement about the year to come.
