Ernie Els will be looking to claim his fourth Dubai Desert Classic title at the Emirates Golf Club next month, it has been confirmed.
The 49-year-old four-time major winner has legendary status in the tournament as he fired a course record 61 – which still remains – back in 1994 on his way to claiming his first European Tour title.
Els won in Dubai on two further occasions in 2002 and 2005 and ‘The Big Easy’ will look to come out on top once again between January 24-27.

Fellow South African, Louis Oosthuizen, who recently won the South African Open, will also be taking part.
Tournament director David Spencer said: “We are really excited to welcome back such an iconic golf legend for his 17th appearance in our tournament.
Ernie is always a crowd favourite and he obviously has a special history on the Majlis course. “To have both the Big Easy and the Little Easy playing together alongside Louis will give a really special South African storyline to the tournament. He may be turning 50 next year, but a fourth victory will be within his grasp.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
