The magnificent Yas Links Golf Club, Abu Dhabi, was the perfect setting for the Emirates Airline Invitational Hosted by Abdullah Al Naboodah, on Monday, January 30, 2012.
The European Tour-sanctioned one-day Pro-Am was staged at Yas Links for the first time in January 2011 and proved to be an overwhelming success. Players and spectators alike heralded the tournament a fun yet seriously competitive event where the fans were able to get close to the action and join in the banter with the cream of The European Tour.
