SERGIO LOOKING TO RACE AHEAD IN ABU DHABI
25 - January 2012
Abu Dhabi, UAE. Tuesday 24th January, 2012: Sergio Garcia says three factors attract him to the Desert Swing tournaments: the courses, the weather and the great competition.
Speaking at a press conference ahead of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship, which starts on Thursday, 26 January, Sergio said: “To start with, the courses are usually in good shape. They are good challenges for us to start the year. It's usually nice weather which is tough to get in most parts of Europe at this time of the year.
“Also, they manage to get great fields. When you have a tournament with the calibre of players that you can get here, it obviously is an asset.”
He also highlighted another attraction for him – Yas Marina Circuit, the home of the Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. He said he was looking forward to fitting in a “nice session at the Yas Marina track. Hopefully we will be able to do it later in the week.”
