Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates: Following the success of previous years, the fourth edition of the Troon Abu Dhabi Pro-Am is set to take place from February 1-4, 2021.
The 54-hole tournament is staged across Abu Dhabi Golf Club, home of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship presented by EGA, Saadiyat Beach Golf Club, a Gary Player-designed masterpiece, and Yas Links Abu Dhabi, a top-50 in the world traditional links designed by Kyle Phillips.
The 2020 tournament saw the largest field yet, with 25 teams competing alongside a strong line-up of professionals that consisted of former European Tour winners, current Ladies European Tour players and MENA Tour golfers. It proved a thrilling finale with the contest going to the final hole and concluded with English professional Robbie Busher rallying from a four-shot deficit on the final day to secure the victory.
