Omega Ambassador Rory McIlroy Leads the Omega Dubai Desert Classic

Back

As day one of the OMEGA Dubai Desert Classic came to a close, OMEGA brand ambassador Rory McIlroy – one of the favourites to take this year’s 25th Omega Dubai Desert Classic – was alone atop the leaderboard with an impressive 9 under par.

The Northern Irishman was practically perfect with a bogey-free round that included seven birdies and an eagle. His 18-hole total of 63 gave him a two-stroke lead over Italy’s Edoardo Molinari.


 

 

The strength of the international field was underscored by the fact that eight different countries were represented in the top nine positions of the leaderboard.

 

During the tournament, OMEGA welcomed the heads of media outlets to lunch at the OMEGA VIP Corporate Chalet. Rory McIlroy made an appearance at the OMEGA Boutique where he met special guests and fans following the spectacular performance in the first round of the Omega Dubai Desert Classic.

 

With his superb first round, Rory McIlroy has thrown down the gauntlet and set himself up as the player to beat at this classic tournament.
