World-famous professional golfer Tiger Woods will begin this 2013 season in Abu Dhabi. The HSBC Golf Tournament began on January 17th with the winner taking home a cool $2.7 million. Woods’ competition will be stiff as number one golfer Roy McElroy will also be there.

(Reuters) - Tiger Woods will begin his season next week at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship, the 14-times major winner said on Wednesday, the second consecutive year he will start his campaign in the United Arab Emirates.
