Ahmed Mohamed Al Musharrekh becomes will line up at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship at Yas Links alongside some of the world’s best golfers.

After receiving an invite from the Abu Dhabi Sports Council, Al Musharrekh joins fellow Emirati and UAE No. 1 amateur Ahmad Skaik in a line-up that includes Major winners Rory McIlroy, Collin Morikawa, Adam Scott and defending champion Tyrrell Hatton.

Returning after a four-year break from the tournament, Al Musharrekh is back to compete in the first Rolex Series event of the 2022 DP World Tour season, and will be striving to beat his final previous score of 22-over-par.

The 32-year-old has experienced some great highs through his career, and became the first UAE national to turn professional in 2012 before joining the UAE national golf team at the age of 15. Al Musharrekh also became the first Emirati to qualify for the Asian Amateur Championship, and he will hope to break more ground this week.

“I am delighted to be back and competing at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship again,” he said. “It is an honour to be able to represent my country and I am looking forward to competing at the new Yas Links venue alongside some of the greatest in this sport. Thank you to Abu Dhabi Sports Council for giving me this opportunity to represent my country once again.”
