Nick Faldo to play in Dubai Desert Classic

Nick Faldo, who has won more Ryder Cup points than any other European, will play in next month's $1.9 million Dubai Desert Classic, event organizers said Monday.

Faldo, who has won 42 titles, will join a strong field in the March 6-9 event that includes world No. 1 Tiger Woods of the United States, South Africa's Ernie Els and Scotland's Colin Montgomerie.

"Nick Faldo is a golfing legend whose record speaks for itself," said Mohammed Buamim, vice chairman of the tournament's executive committee.

"I am sure Faldo's presence would add even more spice to a tournament that is already attracting the world's best players."

Faldo, who played in 11 successive Ryder Cups 1977-97, has also won six majors -- three U.S. Masters and three British Opens.

For Woods, it will be his second time playing in the oldest European PGA championship in the Middle East. His finished tied for second in 2001. Els, who won last year, is the only two-time Dubai winner. He also won in 1994.
