    Rory McIlroy returns to happy surroundings at this week’s Dubai Desert Classic, looking to extend his impressive record in the Desert and defend his crown. Voetbalshirt Adnan Januzaj . The world No 3 has previously referred to the city as like being a second home, with McIlroy having won more of his 19 professional titles in Dubai than any other worldwide.McIlroy opened his campaign with a tied-third finish at the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship, but heads to Dubai hoping to follow on from two wins in the city during 2015. How has McIlroy become the king of Dubai? We look back at his four victories…2009 Dubai Desert ClassicAfter almost letting a considerable lead slip during the final day, McIlroy held on to take a wire-to-wire victory and win his first professional title. McIlroys first professional title came in Dubai in 2009 The-then 19-year-old set the early pace with an opening-round 64, before a four-under 68 maintained the Northern Irishmans one shot cushion.That slender advantage over Louis Oosthuizen doubled on Saturday to move McIlroy two clear, before an impressive run of birdies around the turn on Sunday opened up a six-stroke cushion with six holes to play.McIlroy then stuttered over the closing stretch, with three dropped shots in as many holes leaving the teenager just one clear of Justin Rose heading to the last, where a close-range par proved just about enough. 2012 DP World Tour ChampionshipWith a maiden Race to Dubai title already safely secured, McIlroy broke the European Tours season-earnings record by ending his year with another victory. Four wins in nine starts late on in 2012 A week on from missing the cut in Hong Kong, McIlroy started strongly by adding a 67 to an opening-round 66 to share the 36-hole lead with Luke Donald and Marc Warren.The world No 1 recovered from a first hole bogey on Saturday to card a back nine 31 and go in to Sunday alongside Donald, where McIlroy bounced back from a frustrating front nine in some style.  Justin Roses birdie-filled 62 had bolstered his chances of spoiling McIlroys party, but the Northern Irishman finished with five straight gains to claim a two-shot triumph and a fifth worldwide title of 2012. 2015 Dubai Desert ClassicHaving finished runner-up in Abu Dhabi a fortnight earlier, McIlroy barely needed to get out of second gear during the final day to claim his first victory of the season. McIlroys three shot win in Dubai last year was his first of four victories during 2015 The then world No 1 followed an opening round 66 with a birdie-filled 64 to take a one-shot advantage in to the weekend, but stormed clear of the rest of the field with a flying start to Moving Saturday.Five birdies from his opening eight holes moved McIlroy six clear, before he survived a back-nine stutter to stay bogey-free and take a four-stroke lead in to the final round.McIlroy admitted to being in cruise control during Sunday where he played far less aggressively than he had during the previous three rounds, completing a three-shot win with a final round 70. 2015 DP World Tour ChampionshipAn injury-plagued season didnt prevent McIlroy continuing his fine Dubai record and ending 2015 as European No 1 for the third time in four years. McIlroy ended the year as European No 1 for a third time in four seasons The world No 3 went in to the final event of the season just 1,618 points ahead of nearest challenger Danny Willett, but ensured he would retain his Race to Dubai crown with a narrow victory in a season-finale.McIlroy found himself four adrift of midway pacesetter Andy Sullivan after successive 68s, but seven birdies in an 11-hole stretch around the turn booked the Northern Irishman a place in the final group to tee off on Sunday.A topsy-turvy final day saw Sullivan briefly go three clear, before McIlroy responded with a string of birdies to move two shots clear of the Englishman. The bogey of his career at the 17th saw McIlroy recover from finding the water to drain a 30-foot putt and head to the last with a one-shot lead, where a par was enough to take the title.  Can McIlroy claim another Dubai victory?

That left plenty of energy for pitching books and swatting away free agency questions. Anthony had 24 points and nine rebounds, and the Knicks avenged an embarrassing home loss with a rout of their own, beating the Boston Celtics 114-88 on Wednesday night for their third straight victory. Shirt Rode Duivels Kevin De Bruyne . He said Tuesday thats a big reason why he is now the new coach of the Tennessee Titans. Whisenhunt said he hit it off quickly with Ruston Webster when interviewing for the job Friday night. . The Cincinnati Reds remain perfect with their speedy rookie outfielder in the starting lineup. CLEVELAND -- Josh Tomlin is running out of time, if he hasnt already.October is right around the corner, and if hes going to pitch then -- or in any meaningful games down the stretch -- Tomlin knows he had better start performing for the Indians.I need to figure it out, and figure it out quick, he said.Tomlin didnt get out of the second inning Tuesday night, continuing a run of bad starts for the right-hander, but Cleveland rallied and got another strong outing from its bullpen to beat Minnesota 5-4 and extend the Twins losing streak to 12 games.Francisco Lindors double off Alex Wimmers (0-1) snapped a 4-4 tie and helped the Indians maintain their lead over second-place Detroit in the AL Central.Rajai Davis hit a three-run homer and Jason Kipnis added a solo shot for Cleveland, which trailed 4-1 in the second after the Twins knocked around Tomlin, who lasted just 1 2/3 innings. Dan Otero (4-1) pitched 2 2/3 hitless innings, Bryan Shaw worked out of a jam in the seventh and Andrew Miller got five outs for his third save since joining Cleveland.The Indians also got a spectacular play from reliever Zach McAllister, who blindly swung his left leg behind him to stop a comebacker in the sixth inning.I dont know if that caught him or he caught it, Indians manager Terry Francona said. I know hes going to have a bruise on his calf, but hell take it.It all bailed out Tomlin, who is 0-5 with an 11.47 ERA in his last six starts and could soon find himself out of Clevelands rotation. Francona said he may soon juggle things and Tomlin understands hes the reason why.Whatever move he makes I understand, Tomlin said. Im struggling. I know Im struggling. I take full ownership in that. Its my fault. I dont know what Im doing, but Im anxious to back here tomorrow and try to figure it out. Whatever he has to do, I get it.Minnesotas current slide is the third longest in club history. The Twins, who have lost five one-run games in the stretch, dropped 13 straight in 1961 and a team-record 14 consecutive games in 1982.Brian Dozier homered for the Twins, winless since Aug. 17. Minnesota pitchers walked eight.Too many walks, Dozier said. You cant give stuff away, especially against a good team. This is the big leaguees. Shirt Toby Alderweireld. You cant give away stuff like that.As the playoff race heats up, the Indians found some outfield depth, agreeing on a trade to acquire Coco Crisp from Oakland. A person familiar with the deal told The Associated Press the sides are only awaiting approval from Major League Baseball. The 36-year-old Crisp began his career with Cleveland in 2002.With runners at first and second in the fifth, Lindor barely missed hitting a three-run homer when his shot caromed high off the wall in left-center. Davis scored easily from second, but Kipnis was thrown out at the plate by shortstop Eduardo Escobar, who made a perfect relay.The Indians had two runners thrown out at third and one at home.Tomlin was in trouble on his first pitch, with Dozier driving it into the seats for his 31st homer. The Twins made it 2-0 on Miguel Sanos RBI single.MCALLISTERS MAGICIn the sixth, Minnesotas Kurt Suzuki hit a smash through the middle behind McAllister, who whipped his leg around to stop the ball. It popped straight up and the right-hander snagged it for the out.Just reaction, said McAllister, whose calf was red and swollen. Theres nothing more than that. Its a ball coming back at you and hopefully you either stop it and make the play, or it goes through the middle and its probably a base hit. It just worked in my favor tonight.TRAINERS ROOMIndians: OF Michael Brantley expects to wear a sling for six more weeks as he recovers from his second surgery since November. The former All-Star only played 11 games this season and endured numerous setbacks as he tried to come back from offseason right shoulder surgery.
