Matthew Fitzpatrick is thrilled to be back in Dubai on the eve of his DP World Tour Championship title defence, which begins at Jumeirah Golf Estates on Thursday as the Race to Dubai reaches its conclusion at the European Tour’s season-ending grand finale.
“I’m really looking forward to it,” said the Englishman. “It’s nice to be back and it’s going to be the first time trying to defend a title on the same golf course so I’m really looking forward to the week. This is a place I’ve done well even before my win here last year – I finished fourth in 2015 – so I love the course and all being well I’ll have a similar sort of result and end the year on a high.”
The 23-year-old endured a rocky summer but is heading into this week’s season-ending event in fine form having picked up his fourth European Tour title at the Omega European Masters in September before going on a consistent run that has seen him finish in the top 15 in each of his six events since the victory in Switzerland.
A festive ambience pervaded the city’s foremost neighbourhood and Dubai’s first beachfront destination, Jumeirah Beach Residence (JBR) by Dubai Properties, that kicked off a 24-week celebration of street art, live entertainment and immersive experiences.
The #WOWJBR campaign commenced on 9 November 2017 with performances from a live band, kids activities and the chance to catch a graffiti artist at work. For the next several weeks, JBR’s 1.7 km promenade will host a series of fun-filled weekend events, which are free to attend.
Not missing a beat, #WOWJBR presents good family fun at the upcoming comedy festival and offers fitness enthusiasts physical challenges, outdoor cycling and much more to look forward to. Also on the calendar are themed activities for the UAE’s 46thNational Day, the ongoing festive season and New Year.
