Rory McIlroy doesn't think United States will skate to Ryder Cup win

Rory McIlroy doesn't think United States will skate to Ryder Cup win

"That (victory in Hawaii) was two weeks ago so it really doesn't matter what I did there", the 33-year-old said at his press conference ahead of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship getting underway in the UAE capital on Thursday.

He began slowly at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship, presented by EGA, as was probably to be expected.

"And then to throw three wins in there and have a couple of other chances where, as a player, you look back at tournaments you win but then tournaments you feel like you could have or should have won - that was a really, really strong run of golf, and looking forward to just keeping that momentum going as soon as possible". "I've been out here (on tour) for 10 years and it just felt like it was a little bit of a sabbatical". I'm really pleased that I could take what I've been seeing in practice and play as well with a card in my hand'.

Of the players who did finish their opening rounds, only three were within two strokes of Garcia and Kitayama. You get certain players like that.

Rory McIlroy doesn't think United States will skate to Ryder Cup win

The third member of the group, Europe's No 1, Tommy Fleetwood, simply took up from where he left off previous year with an accomplished 66 to set the early pace.

"If you look at Hazeltine last time and how they set that golf course up: Big wide fairways. pins in the middle of greens; it wasn't set up for the way the Europeans like to play". This year's event will be played outside of Paris at Le Golf National, the site of an annual European Tour event.

"It's really cool to be back", Casey said. "The Scottish Open is an event I've really come to enjoy. I think Paris will be a completely different kettle of fish, so I think it will be so different". It's hard to say I'm going to go out and win. I always do that. I don't struggle with motivation on course. The last two Masters I played in, I did very well, so I'm definitely excited to go back. The first event of the year on the PGA Tour was the Sentry Tournament of Champions.Hide Caption 2 of 8 Photos: Best golf images 2018All at sea: Japan's Hideki Matsuyama keeps his eye on the ball despite the sweeping sea views.Hide Caption 3 of 8 Photos: Best golf images 2018Guess who?: The mystery golfer is America's Kevin Chappell during the Sentry pro-am at Kapalua.Hide Caption 4 of 8 Photos: Best golf images 2018Hawaiian style: Rickie Fowler's shirt made a big noise - not for the pattern but because it was created to be worn untucked from his trousers.

Rose compared the current era, which sees a crop of around six golfers dominating the sport, with the Woods era, when one man was blazing such an impressive tale. It provides enough of the pot bunkers that you need to avoid. Good to get the victory.
