RORY MCILROY RETURNS TO
ABU DHABI INVITATIONAL

26 January 2016

World number three golfer Rory McIlroy will be the man all the professionals will have to beat in order to claim the lion's share of the AED 1 million prize fund at Yas Links this weekend.  

The Northern Irishman will be taking part in the pro-am on Sunday, the second straight year he has done so at the charity tournament. In addition to chasing the prize money for professionals, McIlroy will be paired with a celebrity VIP in the team betterball competition.

McIlroy comes into the tournament in sound form after opening his European Tour season with a solid third place at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship over the weekend. He finished two strokes behind winner Rickie Fowler.
