Abu Dhabi’s most prestigious hotel, the luxurious Emirates Palace, is delighted to announce a two-year sponsorship agreement with Robert Rock, the newly crowned champion of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship.
Rock captured the imagination of the golfing world with his stunning victory at the Abu Dhabi Golf Club, which saw him eclipse some of the greatest names in golf, including Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Lee Westwood and Martin Kaymer.
The Emirates Palace is synonymous with refined quality and style, attributes that Rock showed in abundance during four days of sustained excellence, which saw him win the tournament by a stroke.
It was Rock’s second European Tour victory in seven months following his maiden win at the BMW Italian Open last June.

“We are delighted to be associated with Robert Rock,” said Emirates Palace’s general manager Bugra Berberoglu.
“He is talented, with great potential, but also showed tremendous grace under pressure when winning this year’s Championship.
“We like to think we show similar qualities at our hotel, and look forward to working with him.”

Rock said: “I’m delighted to be part of the Emirates Palace family. To win the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship was the greatest achievement of my career, a great thrill that will always be associated with the Emirates Palace, where I was lucky enough to stay for the duration of the tournament.
“The Emirates Palace is unlike any hotel that I have ever stayed. I’m proud and honoured by the association and look forward to a successful two years.”
