Race to Dubai

I thought it was a maratton, but it was actually a golf tournament, sorry for being naive. I got an invite from Fitness First to join their promo for a chance to get 2 VIP Hospitality tickets.

Dubai World Championship is part of the European Tour and will be held from Dec 8 to 11 at Jumeirah Golf Estates' Earth Course. It will be attended by 60 top golfers around the world.

It will definitely be a hole in one, if ever I win those tickets! I don't play actual golf but on game consoles I rule!
