Li Haotong wins the 2018 Omega Dubai Desert Classic
Following four days of enthralling golf, the “Major of the Middle East” has concluded in victory for Li Haotong. The golfer, who played strongly throughout the competition, finished with a 1 point lead on the renowned Majlis course at the Emirates Golf Club. The Omega Dubai Desert Classic has been a part of the European Tour since its inception in 1989. This is the ninth year that Omega has been the title sponsor.
The victory earns Li Haotong a trophy, winner’s cheque and a brand new Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M Master Chronometer. Driven by the Omega Master Chronometer calibre 8901 – the elegant 41 mm timepiece features an 18K Sedna™ gold case, brown leather strap, and 18K Sedna™ gold hands and indexes that are coated with white Super-LumiNova for superb visibility in all lighting conditions. The brown sun-brushed dial is distinguished by a horizontal teak pattern inspired by the wooden decks of luxury sailboats.
Omega President and CEO Raynald Aeschlimann said: “I’m proud to sincerely congratulate Li Haotong on his win and for treating us all to such world class golf. It’s been a thrill from the first day to the last. Omega feels very honoured to be part of this fantastic event, which is a real highlight of the golfing year. This has been the perfect start to 2018 and I wish all the players a fantastic season ahead.”
