Star watch: Rory McIlroy leads way in Abu Dhabi
Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickelson, and Sergio Garcia have completed their first rounds in Abu Dhabi. See how they fared here.
The Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship has a handful of stars getting 2014 kicked off in style (as you can see above with Rory McIlroy).
Your leaders after day one:
T1 -- Matthew Baldwin (-5)
T1 - Rafael Cabrera-Bello (-5)
T1 -- Romain Wattel (-5)
Here's how those stars fared in relation to a trio of leaders at 5 under.
Rory McIlroy (Round 1: 2 under, Tournament: 2 under, T19) -- McIlroy said his opening-round 70 could have been even better. He's three back after 18 holes.
"I hit it long and straight and just did not take advantage of some of the opportunities, especially on the last two holes. It definitely could have been a bit better but it's a solid start and I was pleased."
Martin Kaymer (Round 1: 2 under, Tournament: 2 under, T19) -- Kaymer is now 85 under in 25 rounds in his career at this tournament. That's silly.
Phil Mickelson (Round 1: 1 over, Tournament: 1 over, T63) -- My world is upside down with this Mickelson scorecard:
Mickelson with a very un-Mickelson round today: Par, par, par, par, par, par, par, par, par, par, par, par, par, par, par, par, par, bogey.— Jamie Kennedy (@jamieonsport) January 16, 2014
Henrik Stenson (Round 1: 2 over, Tournament: 2 over, T85) -- Pretty disappointing start to the year for somebody who ended 2013 as the hottest golfer on the planet.
Sergio Garcia (Round 1: 4 over, Tournament: 4 over, T104) -- Garcia is in serious danger of missing the cut as he's T104 after the first round. He wasn't pleased with the rough, either. Garcia said it hurt a muscle he'd tweaked and called it "dangerous."
