Abu Dhabi Championship, Thursday, January 19

The so-called “Desert Swing” on the European Tour gets underway on Thursday, with the Abu Dhabi Championship in the United Arab Emirates. World ranked number 3, Dustin Johnson, makes his debut in Abu Dhabi but, on a course where distance from the tee is typically more important than accuracy, the reigning U.S. Open champion should make his present felt. “DJ” finished tied sixth at SBS Tournament of Champions on the Plantation Course at Kapalua, Hawaii two weeks ago and his greens in regulation percentage of 76.39% is none too shabby, albeit based on just eight rounds on the US PFA Tour so far this season.

Selection: Dustin Johnson to win outright (6/1 generally available)
