Dubai hosts the inaugural Long Drive World Series
Taking the Olympic motto of "Faster, higher, stronger" a little too literally, this weekend sees the biggest hitters in the world of golf facing off in the sport's most exciting new battleground: The Long Drive World Series.
Eight competitors - each a champion in their own right - have been hand-picked to smash balls down the specially constructed course at the Jumeirah Golf Estates European Tour Performance Institute in Dubai.
Starting this weekend in Dubai, the World Series will see the likes of World Champion Joe Miller (and other champions from the UK, US and Europe) competing across four events.
The format has been designed to keep viewers on the edge of their seats, with knockout rounds, head-to-head battles, as well as the unknown challenge of two wildcard places (where the UAE's finest can attempt to qualify for the event).
While the event will be live streamed online, there is nothing like being there in person. So free up evening on Friday, March 17, 5pm at the Jumeirah Golf Estates, Dubai.
