Germany's Martin Kaymer leads by three strokes after two rounds of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship, while Padraig Harrington was disqualified for illegally moving his ball during the first round.

Kaymer is bidding to win the tournament for a third time. On a wet, gloomy day, he shot a 7-under 65 that put him at 12-under 132.

duff, your cally 18 is a wood or hybrid? Is it shallow faced? Have you compared the tour vs non-tour version?

i'm looking for an easy to hit 3-4 wood. found one in diablo, but cally said diablo edge is better.

The diablo edge tour is a winner, was in a transision of woods last few months. On a good shot of the tee with tail wind, should be able to get 210m. An yes, it's a shallow face, I can't hit deep face stuff.

Glad you guys like the pics!

The public rate is 125 AED per day and 400 AED for full four day pass. That works out to be 43 SGD and 140 SGD.

The Race to Dubai Finale at JUmeirah Golf Estates (home course of Ghoonk) is more friendly, free entry for all for the last 2 yrs that I have been to. Smile

The weather in winter is great. Other than the once a yearly rain ( Abu Dhabi sees abt 5 days of rain in a year) which unfortunately occurred this week, the period between Nov to Feb is very nice for golf - 18C in the early morning tees, warming up to about 22C in noon. low humidity, still plenty of suhshine.

But my personal favourite is to golf in Summer, and not because of the 48C heat. Smile

G Mac seems to have put on the pounds.

Surprised

Kaymer is so efficient in his game, not to mention ruthless.

Ha ha...nice compact sports sedan but body a might on th eheavy side thus guzzled petrol like drinking water ha ha. Thats the reason I got rid of mine after 3 years as gas prices kept rising . Overall, still quite a nice car to drive though. Good choice as prices of gas there are much more affordable than back home. Take care and hope to have agame with you soon. Happy golfing bro. Beer
