Joe Way won his first UAE PGA Tour title with panache, chipping in for birdie on his final hole to share the spoils with club-mate Cen Mills at the Dubai Creek UAE PGA Pro-Am in October. There weren’t quite the same optics when he secured the Emirates Golf Club title last week but a win, even achieved ugly, is a win nonetheless.

Alexander Levy couldn’t quite believe his perfect 171 yard shot on the 4th for the second ace of the week at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic on Saturday. Or what happened next.

After 16 holes of the opening round, Rafa Cabrera Bello was one-over-par and an afterthought in the Omega Dubai Desert Classic. Golf’s a crazy game though and back to back eagles to close out Thursday brought relief. Fast forward to Saturday and another eagle on the 18th has brought something much better - hope.
