The DP World Tour remains in the UAE for the third consecutive week, with the Ras Al Khaimah Championship scheduled to take place from tomorrow until January 28. The event will take place on the course of the Al Hamra Golf Club in Ras Al Khaimah and will see the participation of seven Italian golfers.

Among them, Edoardo Molinari, recently appointed first vice-captain of the Europe team for the 2025 Ryder Cup in Bethpage, New York. Other Italians competing include Guido Migliozzi, Matteo Manassero, Andrea Pavan, Lorenzo Scalise, Francesco Laporta and Filippo Celli.

Dp, schedule

In this third stage of the International Swing, $2,500,000 will be up for grabs, with a prize of $416,667 for the winner. The title will be defended by the Englishman Daniel Gavins, who won it in 2023 with just one shot over Swede Alexander Bjork and South African Zander Lombard.

In the Middle East region, Danish Rasmus Hojgaard will try to emulate the success of his twin brother Nicolai, winner of the first edition of the competition in 2022. Among the favourites, there will also be compatriot Thorbjorn Olesen, Chinese Haotong Li, German Yannik Paul , the Spaniards Rafa Cabrera Bello, Adri Arnaus and Adrian Otaegui, and the South African Thriston Lawrence.

A curious fact is the return of the Austrian golfer Bernd Wiesberger to the DP World Tour after his choice to participate in the Arab Super League and subsequent relegation to the LIV Golf League. Finally, all eyes will be on Japan's Keita Nakajima, the former world No.

They border Oman to the south-east and Saudi Arabia to the south-west, while they are bordered by the Persian Gulf to the north. Officially known as the "State of the United Arab Emirates," this country is made up of seven emirates: Abu Dhabi, ʿAjmān, Dubai, Fujairah, Ra's al-Khayma, Sharjah, and Umm al-Qaywayn.

The history of the United Arab Emirates begins in the 19th century when it was a federation under the British Empire, known as the "Truce States". In 1971, the country gained independence and became known as the United Arab Emirates.

This state is renowned for its wealth from the oil industry. The United Arab Emirates is a multi-ethnic society, with the relative majority of residents made up of immigrants from the Indian subcontinent and other parts of the Arab world.
