In Dubai, things did not turn out as we expected. Both Ernie Els and Tiger Woods struggled on the front nine, due to blustery winds — Ernie bogeyed 3 of the first 6 holes, while Tiger bogeyed 3 of the first 11 holes. Ernie ended up shooting 1-under, while Tiger shot 3-under. Ernie finished at -18, Tiger at -17.

But that left the door open for Henrik Stenson, who shot a 4-under to finish at -19. Stenson had local knowledge because he now lives in Dubai and is a member of the golf club where the tourney is played. But Stenson did face one dangeous moment. According to ESPN, “On the ninth hole, his drive to the green got blown onto the roof of a spectators’ pavilion. The referee forced the Swede to make a precarious climb to the roof to identify his ball before allowing him a penalty-free drop. Stenson said he scraped his ribs making the climb.” Ouch. Next time, send your caddy! Leaderboard.
