Lowry plans Dubai return

SHANE LOWRY plans a return to Tour action at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic on February 10, after an MRI scan on Tuesday revealed that the right wrist fracture he sustained in a fall on the ice during the festive season is making good progress.

As he'll miss the opening three events in the European Tour's 'Desert Swing' -- Abu Dhabi, Bahrain and Qatar -- Lowry has decided to go straight from Dubai to New Delhi for the Avantha Masters.
