Phil Mickelson is opting out of the Waste Management Open in order to play the European Tour's Saudi International tournament. "I watched Dustin (Johnson) win the title last year and thought the course looked like an interesting challenge," Mickelson said in a statement, according to ESPN's Bob Harig. "Having so many talented players on show also made it look like a much more established tournament than one in its inaugural year. I have enjoyed my previous visits to the Middle East and am looking forward to playing in a new country and doing my bit to grow the game in the Kingdom.

This makes Aramco more valuable than Microsoft or Apple, two of the top listed companies in the world. It's also worth more than the top five oil companies -- Exxon Mobil, Total, Royal Dutch Shell, Chevron and BP — combined.
Aramco is selling 0.5% of its shares to individual retail investors — most of whom are Saudi nationals — and 1% to institutional investors, most of which are Saudi or Gulf-based funds.
Only Saudi citizens, residents of Saudi Arabia or nationals of Gulf Arab states were permitted to buy Aramco shares as individual investors.
Tiger declines millions, turns down Saudi International for 2nd straight year
Tiger Woods declined a lucrative offer to play in the European Tour's Saudi International for the second straight year, according to ESPN's Bob Harig. "I just don't want to go over there," Tiger said. "It's a long way." Woods was offered an appearance fee of roughly $3 million each of the past two years from tournament organizers in Saudi Arabia. That still wasn't enough for the 15-time major winner to participate in the controversial event. However, Woods understands why players like Phil Mickelson and Dustin Johnson would accept offers to make the trip to Saudi Arabia despite the political turmoil surrounding the nation.

Saudi Aramco shares will start trading domestically next Wednesday, the Riyadh stock "The Saudi Stock Exchange (Tadawul) announces that the listing and trading of the Saudi Arabian Oil Aramco shares will trade within a fluctuation limit of plus or minus 10 percent, the statement added.
Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman plans to use the money raised from the sale of a sliver of the kingdom's crown jewel to diversify the country's economy and fund major national projects that create jobs for the millions of young Saudis entering the workforce.
What the 34-year-old crown prince had initially sought was a $2 trillion valuation for Aramco and the sale of up to 5% of the company - on an international stock exchange as well as the Saudi market - that could raise $100 billion.
Instead, potential buyers outside Saudi Arabia thought his $2 trillion valuation was too high. With gains made on the local Tadawul and strong local support, the company could reach the $2 trillion mark in trading on the local exchange.
The strong demand for Aramco's stock, however, has so far been mostly supported by Saudi and some Gulf-based funds, rather than international investors.

Saudi Arabian Oil Co ( Aramco ) raised a record .6 billion in its IPO last week, giving it a market Aramco shares began trading half an hour after the market open as the Saudi bourse allowed extra If Aramco shares gain 10 % on both Wednesday and Thursday, it will exceed the trillion valuation
To encourage Saudi citizens to buy and keep hold of Aramco stock, the company says it will pay a dividend of at least $75 billion in 2020. Individual Saudi investors who hold their shares for six months from the first day of trading can receive up to 100 bonus shares, or one for every 10 held.
The government also encouraged Saudis by making it easier to access credit for stock purchases. There were reports that the prince, who led a shakedown of top royals and businessmen during an anti-corruption sweep in 2017, also pressed wealthy Saudis to contribute.
The result was that just over 5 million individuals, nearly all of them Saudi nationals out of a population of around 20 million citizens, generated subscriptions of $13 billion.
Institutional investors, many of them Saudi or Gulf-based funds, raised more than $100 billion during the book-building period that closed last week. Less than quarter of that, or 23%, was raised from non-Saudi investors, according to Aramco's lead IPO adviser Samba Capital.
Aramco has exclusive rights to produce and sell the kingdom's energy reserves. It was founded in 1933 with America’s Standard Oil, and became fully owned by Saudi Arabia by 1980.
