Henrik shot a bogey free -8 under par 64 to lead the after the first round of the Abu Dhabi Championship, and said he was delighted with the effort, especially his good putting;

“It must be the lack of practice that does it, lack of sleep, lack of practice.”

“I’m delighted with that score. I think I scored a bit better than what I played but I kept it under control somewhat and hit a couple of close iron shots and made the putts.”

“It wasn’t too much stress out there.”

“I think if you finish off playing pretty well like I did at the Hero World Challenge, there’s nothing that says you can’t pick it up where you left it.”

Tied in second place at -6 under par are, Martin Kaymer, Oliver Fisher, Kiradech Aphibarnrat, and Marc Warren, all with rounds of 66.

Next were Rafa Cabrera Bello, Tommy Fleetwood, Tyrrell Hatton and Julien Quesne , all with rounds of -5 under par 67.
