NORTH Yorkshire swing king Simon Dyson has shaken off a wrist injury to get his European Tour season under way this week at The Abu Dhabi Golf Club in the United Arab Emirates.

The 29-year-old Malton and Norton Golf Club ace has been training at the Peter Cowen golf academy in Dubai before teeing it up tomorrow at the start of an eight-week tour stint.

Dyson hasn't played since the Blue Chip New Zealand Open at the start of last month, where he was tied in 85th after carding a score of four over par.

Malton and Norton GC professional Steve Robinson said Dyson had intended to start his season last week at the Joburn Open, in South Africa, but picked up a wrist injury in the gym which had prevented him from playing.

But he is expected to be fresh and fit by tomorrow for the start of the European Tour's "Desert Swing". He will hope 2007 is as successful as last season when he picked up two titles and was a career high 21st in the Order of Merit.

Dyson has also confirmed he will defend his Indonesian Open title at the Damai Indah Golf and Country Club, in Jakarta, next month.

The 2006 event was where Dyson broke his European Tour duck, taking the title with a closing 67 to hold off Australia's Andrew Buckle following a classic head-to-head at the Emeralda Golf and Country Club.

Dyson, currently ranked 88th in the world, will compete in a competition with a prize pool of more than a million dollars from February 15 to 18, joining Asian star and 2005 winner Thaworn Wirachant in the field.

He has enjoyed much of his early golfing success in Asia - starring in the Asian PGA Tour School and winning three titles on his way to Asian Tour rookie of the year, player of the year and order of merit honours in 2000.

Bpk Z Soedjais, society general of Indonesian Golf Associations, said: "PGI is excited to have star players like Thongchai Jaidee, Thaworn Wirachant and the defending champion Simon Dyson play in the Enjoy Jakarta Astro Indonesia Open 2007."
