Laura Davies in Dubai Ladies Masters December 14 2011

Laura Davies will join other top ladies in the world to compete for the Dubai Ladies Master title and a winners check of 75,000 euros. Laura will be joined by countrywoman Melissa Reid and Americans Michelle Wie and Alexis ‘Lexi’ Thompson which should make for an interesting tournament. Laura is hoping her year long putting problems will not come back to haunt her and will be using a new putter for this competition. “I’ve actually played better this year than I did last year tee to green,” the 48-year-old explained. “Unfortunately though, in this game, it’s all about the putting and I’ve just not been comfortable on the greens this year. My game is still very good. “It has been extraordinary how many good putts haven’t gone in this year. They’re just not going in and I cannot put my finger on it. “The only thing you can do is try and find the putter that you feel really comfortable with and practice and that’s what I have been doing.
