February 1: Korean star Noh Seung-yul shot an opening round six-under-par 66 to lie four shots from the lead at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic on Thursday.
Noh, the 2010 Asian Tour Order of Merit winner, shot six birdies as he trails the first round leader Richard Sterne at the Emirate Golf Club.
Marcus Fraser, who finished second on the Order of Merit last season, was a further shot back in tied 12th position. The Australian, currently ranked 58th in the world, is fighting to break into the top-50 rankings.
Players in the top-50 in the world a week prior to the Masters Tournament will earn a spot in the year’s first Major in April.
Meanwhile at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, Y.E. Yang of Korea, Asia’s first Major winner, shot a six-under-par 65 to trail opening round leader Phil Mickelson by five shots.
