The UAE’s first pro golfer is ready to tee off against the big wigs at the upcoming Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship.
The 25-year-old Ahmed Al Musharrekh is the first Emirati golfer to turn professional, and will join the likes of three-time Abu Dhabi advocate Martin Kaymer and world number one Jordan Spieth.
Aiming to inspire thousands of youngsters across the Emirates, Al Musharrekh hopes to become the first UAE national to make the cut at this month’s Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship.
After making his debut at the 2010 Championship, this will be Al Musharrekh’s fifth attempt at conquering the course.
“Each year I’m gaining more and more experience with my own game and playing against the world’s best golfers,” said Al Musharrekh.
“I’m super excited about the future, not just for my own career, but for golf in the UAE too,” Al Musharrekh said. “The sport is growing in popularity here and as the first professional Emirati golfer I feel it’s my duty to support that. I’m looking forward to meeting some of the upcoming local talent at the Championship this year.”
The Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship tees off from 21st to 24th January at Abu Dhabi Golf Club. For tickets and more information, visit: abudhabigolfchampionship.com
