Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship - Martin Kaymer & G-Mac, Day 3

Some final shots from my Saturday at the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship, sponsored by HSBC. Tickets at 125 AED were really good value, considering how good the action was, and how close we could get to the players! Here is the final grouping on Day 3, of Martin Kaymer (The champ for a 3rd time, thus keeping the Falcon Trophy!) - Graeme MacDowell (Finished tied-3rd) - Charl Schwartzel (eventually finished 8th).

Yes, we were so close to Martin Kaymer. These shots were without zoom on my Canon Powershot G10.

Its Graeme G-Mac MacDowell!

G-Mac looking on...

Check out Martin's swing ... future world number one? You betcha!

Calm ... composed ... Martin Kaymer!

G-Mac hits another brilliant approach!

I like the new Cadillac CTS-V coupe!

Teeing it up on the Par 3 12th, 174 yards ... Funny how Soren Kjeldsen had an ace on Day 1 (winning a Cadillac CTS in the process!), Ricardo Gonzalez repeated this in Day 2, and Paul Casey who is a 2 time winner of this tournament, did it on the 3rd day! 3 hole in ones ... 3 days!

G-Mac was closest to the pin, only 6 feet away!

Strike a pose...

Charl Schwartzel had a frustrating day :-(

Kaymer and G-Mac lining up their putts ...

G-Mac's effort just lips out!

Martin misses his putt too!
All in all ... a brilliant event, we thoroughly enjoyed the Friday at the Pavilion, and my walking day on Saturday too! See you in 2012!
