Westwood to start 2001 defence at Dubai

Lee Westwood will lock horns with world No 1 Tiger Woods when he launches the defence of his European Order of Merit title in the 2001 Dubai Desert Classic at the Emirates Golf Club from March 1-4.

Westwood said: "I intend starting the new season in Sun City by defending the Dimension Data Pro-Am title with my dad before starting my European Tour campaign in the Dubai Desert Classic

"I know there will be plenty of players trying to knock me off my No 1 perch next season but that makes the challenge all the more exciting. The fact that Tiger is playing in Dubai makes the tournament even bigger and I'm looking forward to playing against him at the Emirates Golf Club which is a course that always produces some great attacking golf.

"I've always loved playing in Dubai and have enjoyed some high finishes without managing to put my name of that magnificent trophy. Hopefully I can do that - and beat Tiger in the process - in 2001."
