Golf Digest Middle East – “Blonde Bomber Burke back to defend Dubai LDWS title”

Tim Burke is back to defend his title as a beefed up second season of the Long Drive World Series (LDWS) makes its bow at Jumeirah Golf Estates on Friday night. And you could give the beast a run for his money.

The 31-year-old American edged Thursday qualifier and LDWS Portugal champion Ryan Reisbeck 335 yards to 329.5 yards in the inaugural Dubai final last March and also produced the longest drive of 341 in brisk headwinds.
