O'Meara ready to go at Dubai Classic

Happy memories of Dubai from eight years ago, where Mark O'Meara beat Tiger Woods to become the oldest champion of the European Tour event have brought the man, now 55, back to the Middle East and raring to go.

With a will to win as strong as the one that made him a double major champion in 1998, O'Meara now competes in the Champions Tour but still believes he can take on the younger players to this day.

"As far as being competitive, that never changes. And it won't until they put me in the grave," O'Meara said.

"My health is good. My family is great. I'm blessed to have played this game for a long time and I'm still playing," added the 16-times US PGA Tour winner who is the oldest player to claim two Majors in a season.

"I've only won twice since joining the Champions Tour in 2007 but I've had about 13 seconds so I know how tough it is to win. I don't like finishing second to be honest with you."

The Dubai Classic takes place on January 31, following next week's Abu Dhabi Championship that is set to feature Tiger Woods and World No1 Rory McIlroy.
