Tiger Woods Paired With Lee Westwood, Martin Kaymer In Dubai Classic

The top three players in the world -- Lee Westwood, Martin Kaymer and Tiger Woods -- will not only be participating in the Omega Dubai Desert Classic this week, all three will all be playing together in the first two rounds.

According to the first round groups, released  Tuesday, the best golfers in the world will have to share the spotlight with one another in the United Arab Emirates. This could be somewhat insulting to Westwood and Kaymer, who have earned their rankings with their recent success while Woods has slipped due to his disappointing finishes lately. But according to Kaymer that isn't really an issue:

"Lee and me are (World) Nos. 1 and 2, but in every golfer’s mind, he (Tiger) is the best player in the world. It would be fantastic if he can go back to where he was."

It certainly is to the benefit of everyone on the PGA for Woods to have a good showing this season, as most of the attention, winning or losing, is directed towards the 14-time major winner.
