Where is it?
The final event of the year is being hosted at Jumeirah Golf Estates this week in Dubai. We were lucky enough to spend some time with Mark Gregson-Walters and Tim Backhouse earlier this year and they took us through a few holes to watch out for this week. Check out the video's by clicking on this link.
Jumeirah Golf Club, Earth Course has played host to the DP World Tour Champs since 2009. Jumeirah Golf Estes is not short of hazards, with a total of 99 bunkers as well as a variety of lakes.
Who's going well?
It's quite tight at the top of the table as to whom will win the race to Dubai, but one man to watch out for especially with his recent form is Golf Ball Loyalist Henrik Stenson.
There are many Titleist names at the top of the leaderboard after Round 2 of the tournament with golf ball loyalist Lee Westwood just one off the lead. Closely followed by Golf Ball Loyalist Joost Luiten, Charl Schwartzel and Tyrell Hatton and Staffer Bernd Wiesberger all at -7 for the tournament.
Titleist by Numbers:
At this week's European Tour event, 63% of the field trusted in the Titleist Pro V1 or Pro V1x to make a difference in their game. Therefore out of a field of 60 people, 38 players teed up a Titleist.
Wishing all Titleist Brand Ambassadors and Golf Ball Loyalists the best of luck for the rest of the tournament.
