This week we are at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic, the final event of the three week Desert Swing. This year marks the 25th anniversary of the event, with a whole new city having been built around this wonderful golf course during that time. The Bedouin tents that are symbolised in its clubhouse design have become well known throughout the golfing world, as have the views of Dubai's majestic skyline seen from most parts of the course.

At the half way stage, Brand Ambassador Brooks Koepka leads the Titleist charge after an incredible 65 in the second round to follow up his solid 69 in the opening round, leaving him trailing the half-way leader by only one. Other Brand Ambassadors who have positioned themselves well for the weekend charge include Morten Orum-Madsen, who is having a fantastic season so far, and Gregory Bourdy, who is coming off the back of his best season of his career so far.

Titleist Pro V1 loyalist Jamie Donaldson also continues his fine form this week, with two scores in the 60's so far. As does last year's stand out performer, Pro V1x loyalist, Henrik Stenson who keeps up his standards of late to sit only a handful of shots back. As always, keep your eyes out on Team Titleist to see how all the guys get on this week!
