Europe’s winning captain Thomas Bjorn is also in the field, joined by his resurgent vice-captain Lee Westwood, a winner at the Nedbank Golf Challenge last month.
Europe’s victorious captain at Celtic Manor in 2010, Colin Montgomerie, will also compete for the title, and tournament director David Spencer is delighted with the field they’ve managed to assemble.
“We are looking forward to ensuring that our 30th edition continues to enhance Dubai’s growing reputation as a world-class golfing destination,” said Spencer.
“The players love our tournament because they get to spend time in our dynamic and vibrant city. No doubt when the winner’s name is etched on our Dallah trophy in 2019, the tradition of greatness will continue.”
