Sergio facing most challenging conditions at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic in history

This week, Sergio Garcia is competing in one of the longest running events of the European Tour and the first tournament of the Tour played in the Middle East.

But the Omega Dubai Desert Classic is even more special for Sergio. Omega is one of Sergio's most faithful sponsor in his professional career and in 2017 he won this tournament, less than three months before winning the Masters in Augusta.

It will be a tough week though as the rough of the Emirates Golf Club's Majlis course is higher and denser than ever and a lot of wind is expected both on the first day and the decisive day on Sunday. A condition, by the way, in which Sergio feels very comfortable.
