Plenty of Birds in Dubai

by Jeff Skinner

Americans may be spending today fighting the crowds of “Black Friday” or walking off that 3,000 calorie turkey dinner from yesterday but half a world away in Dubai there’s still golf being played.  The European Tour’s best are closing out their season at The DP World Tour Championship.

So far it’s been a birdie fest and the top two players in the world golf ranking have a share of the lead.  Number one, Rory McIlroy and number two Luke Donald are at 11 under as is Marc Warren.

The course at one of Rory’s main sponsors, Jumeriah Golf Estates is yielding plenty of birdies and showing little difficulty for Euro’s best.  In the second round the top five golfers combined one eagle, 24 birdies and only four bogeys.  As a matter of fact, Sergio Garcia tied the course record of 64 with an interesting card that contained 9 birds, 2 eagles, 2 bogeys and a triple bogey 7.  64 with a triple….now that’s some good golf.   Click here for Sergio’s card.
