The power play for professional golf gets more intriguing by the day. For important context, the December edition of Golf Digest Middle East is a revealing read.
We ask Asian Tour CEO and Tour Commissioner Cho Minn Thant how LIV Golf Investment’s $200 million, 10-year investment will be a game-changer for a circuit that has quickly shed its “younger brother” inferiority complex.
The European Tour is now the DP World Tour and we sit down with the Dubai-based ports operator and global trade enabler to get a handle on where they see their title-sponsorship taking the sport.
Golf Saudi has become a major player in the global men’s game via their LIV Golf Investment link. But this month Golf Saudi chairman H.E. Yasir O. Al-Rumayyan is focused on the Kingdom’s investment in the Ladies European Tour with an insightful review of the inaugural Aramco Team Series.
Back to the DP World Tour, we count down to the Slync.io Dubai Desert Classic by profiling U.S. collegiate star Sam Bennett, and head to Japan which is set to become the 51st country to host an event on the Old World Circuit.
All this and much more in the Dec. 2021 edition of Golf Digest Middle East. Look out for LPGA Tour star Danielle Kang on the cover.
