World number one Mcilroy stakes claim for 1st Abu Dhabi trophy

posted on 15/09/2014: 1491 views

Four-time Major winner, Rory McIlroy, is set for a stunning return to the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship from January 15th – 18th, where he has his sights focused on winning his first Falcon Trophy.

McIlroy, who has teed off his season in Abu Dhabi for the past seven years and has been a three-time runner up, says he'd love to finally conquer the event during its 10th anniversary celebrations. And with a recent stretch of success behind him that has brought two Major wins, McIlroy believes he can continue the scintillating form into his season opener in January at Abu Dhabi Golf Club's National course.

"Over the past few months, I have been mentally strong and I feel very good about my game at the moment," said McIlroy, who will attempt a career grand slam at Augusta in April next year.

"Greatness in golf is winning Major Championships but after playing in Abu Dhabi for so many years and having come so close in the past, I would love nothing more than to win at the event's 10 year anniversary. That would be something very special and would mean a lot to me." "Rory's presence will add to what promises to be the Championship's most exciting year yet as we look to assemble another amazing line-up of the world's top players to celebrate our tenth anniversary," said Sultan Al Dhaheri, Acting Executive Director Tourism, Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority, TCA Abu Dhabi, which owns and organises the Championship.

"Abu Dhabi has come to mean a lot to the players over the years and we are so pleased to be welcoming Rory back for such an important milestone in the event's history." HSBC Global Head of Sponsorship and Events, Giles Morgan, said, "HSBC's ambition is to open up the world of golf. That is exactly why we are involved in golf and in this tournament. I believe we are fulfilling our ambition in Abu Dhabi and by working closely with our partners, this Championship has evolved into an unmissable event which appeals to absolutely everyone. – Emirates News Agency, WAM -
