For those of you who haven’t heard of the Million Dirham Putt by Emirates NBD – where have you been?
Renowned for being one of the trickier aspects of the game, Emirates NBD has teamed up with Golf DXB to bring you the most pressured putt you may ever take. A putt worth one million Dirhams.
Golfers of all abilities will have the chance to attempt the specially designed putting course with the lowest scorers then qualifying for the Grand Final on Sunday 5th February 2017. Here, a lucky individual will step up to the mark to attempt a 60ft putt in front of a crowd of thousands at the Desert Classic with a chance to win one million Dirhams. There will be four qualifying rounds held over the next few weeks, with each being held at a different location; The Beach, JBR, Omega Ladies Masters, City Walk, Omega Dubai Desert Classic.
The qualifiers are open to everyone and are part of the Emirates NBD #passionforgolf scheme to show commitment to the sport and to get more people interested in the game, a mission that Golf DXB is more than happy to support. Our professional golfers will be overseeing the events and providing some handy putting tips that could make the difference between that one million dirhams and going home empty handed…
Here is what Golf DXB owner Tom Green had to say about the initiative;
“We are delighted to be involved with Emirates NBD and the Million Dirham Putt. The activation is a lot of fun and captures the imagination of golfers and non-golfers alike. It is great to be involved in an event at a combination of golfing and non-golfing venues as this really puts golf in the public eye and gives people who haven’t been involved in the sport a chance to give it a try and get involved.”
We’ve also got a few putting tips from our pros to help you on your way…
