Westwood, Woods and Kaymer together at 2011 Omega Dubai Desert Classic

Is this the tournament where Tiger Woods makes his comeback? It has been 15 months since he hoisted the Australian Masters trophy in November, 2009. It certainly is a promising start as he partnered up with his close friend Mark O’Meara (2004 winner) and won the Omega Dubai Desert Classic Challenge Match on Tuesday.

There are countless fingers crossed all over the world in the hope that Woods gets his game together, his mind straight and bags a win to leave bad times behind. This will not be easy though as Lee Westwood, Tiger Woods and Martin Kaymer go head to head in the first two rounds. Such a high profile three-ball grouping is surely made to draw more viewers and create a buzz around the event.

Well, they have been successful, because the news is filled with Westwood, Woods, Kaymer “epic battle” expectations. The Omega Dubai Desert Classic 2011 is also remarkable because it is the first time in 17 years that the top three golfers are playing together in the European Tour.  It looks as though AT&T Pebble Beach National will have to put some pressure on Bill Murray and Dusting Johnson to entertain the crowds.
