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 runnner-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.dddddddddddd 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.
