Alice
Cooper to feature in Challenge

27 January 2013

Alice Cooper will be hoping to hit the right notes when the shock-rock icon joins some of the marquee players to compete in the Omega Dubai Desert Classic Challenge Match to be held at Jebel Ali Golf Resort on Tuesday, January 29.

A self-confessed golf addict, Alice Cooper will be paired with fellow American, Mark O’Meara, in the Challenge Match which will also feature the likes of Lee Westwood, Thomas Bjorn, Jeev Milkha Singh, Rafael Cabrera-Bello and Henrik Stenson as they showcase their svelte swing during the nine-hole competition, starting at 3.00 pm.

The Rock Hall of Fame inductee and School’s Out hitmaker, Cooper has often credited golf with helping him to kick his crippling drinking addition in the 1980s. Today, Alice Cooper, the stage name for singer Vincent Furnier and his band, is a famed fan of the fairways, playing regularly in celebrity golf tournaments.

“I love the game of golf. It’s never a bad day for me on the golf course,” says Cooper, who has risen from hacker to scratch golfer to serious Pro Am competitor.

“I’ve hit bad shots, but I’ve never thrown a club. I play a different course every single day,” said Cooper who will also feature in the Omega Dubai Desert Classic Pro Am on Wednesday, January 30.
