  • World No1 Luke Donald Tackles Worlds Biggest Bunker in Abu Dhabis Liwa Desert
World number one, Luke Donald, will have no fears about playing out of the sand at Abu Dhabi Golf Club during the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship (Jan 26-29), after the Englishman successfully tackled the world’s biggest ‘bunker’ – a mammoth dune in Abu Dhabi’s Liwa Desert, among some of the world’s most gigantic dunes.

In Liwa, Donald was joined by triple and defending Abu Dhabi champion, Martin Kaymer, as the awe-struck pair stood amongst 250-foot sand dunes at the entrance to Rub Al Khali (Empty Quarter) - a desert made famous by British explorer Wilfred Thesiger’s 1940’s crossing and immortalised in the timeless book: Arabian Sands.
