Following a hugely exciting US Open last week, professional tours around the world continue to be active in what is now the peak time of the year for the game.

On the DP World Tour, the KLM Open in the Netherlands is week 24 of 44 on the season-long Race to Dubai.


Dubai-based Garrick Porteous (Eng) starts a three-week stretch following a short break.

On the Challenge Tour, Joshua Grenville-Wood (UAE), currently 39th on the Road to Mallorca is playing in France along with Joel Stalter (Fr).

LIV Golf Nashville is the ninth event on their calendar with Bryson DeChambeau likely to receive a warm welcome in this sold-out event. He is captain of the Crushers GC team which includes Dubai’s Anirban Lahiri who are leading the season-long Team Standings. Adrian Meronk will look to bounce back after a disappointing performance in the US Open.

The PGA Tour has another $20 million Signature Event – the Travelers.

UAE golfers Jamie Camero and Intisar Rich are invitees for the Tipsport Czech Ladies Open in the Czech Republic – having both competed last week, again in the Czech Republic on the LET Access – the development tour of the Ladies European Tour.

Jeev Milkha Singh will be playing on the OFX Irish Legends at Seapoint Golf Links in County Louth.

The Amateur Championship takes place at Ballyliffin Golf Club, Ireland this week, with the Matchplay element starting on Wednesday. Many UAE and regional players are competing.

Khaleej Times Golf wishes all the players with UAE connections all the best.
