DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) An amateur golfer will get the chance to play with Tiger Woods at the pro-am tournament before the Dubai Desert Classic in February.
Woods often plays pro-am tournaments, but amateurs generally pay for their place and are not guaranteed a chance to play with the second-ranked Woods. In the case of Dubai, there is no charge to register and the player will be part of his foursome.
Anyone in the world with a "valid handicap" can register at www.golfindubai.org and the winner will be picked two weeks ahead of the Feb. 9 tournament. Men must have a handicap of 18 or better and women must have 26 or better.
