Rory McIlroy continues 2018 resurgence with finesse at Abu Dhabi

"For me, it's been a really solid week so far", said Fleetwood.

The flawless way to bounce back from his only dropped shot of the day at the previous hole, that gave Gallacher a three-under 69 and a seven-under total after 54 holes to sit joint-30th.

"When the conditions are ideal and you see everybody making a bunch of birdies and I was hitting it close, but I just wasn't making the putts", said the 25-year-old world number 40.

Rory McIlroy shot a third-round 65 to be one behind the leaders at the Abu Dhabi Championship.

AFTER his brilliant start at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship presented by EGA on the opening day on Thursday, Zimbabwe golf sensation Scott Vincent struggled for consistency in his round two at the Abu Dhabi Golf Club yesterday, as chances of an unlikely win vanished. Up until that point, I had plenty of luck, a few bounces here and there, and holed every putt I looked at, really.

Gallacher came out early to the UAE to prepare for both this event and next week's Omega Dubai Desert Classic, the tournament he won back-to-back in 2013 and 2014. I think I've had six top threes in this event (including four seconds) so that's another reason for wanting to get my hands on the trophy.

"I'm sure people will be sat at home thinking "he must have played well".

The case involves two videos and an explicit photo showing a boy and girl, both 15, having consensual sex, Danish Police said. U.S. authorities then informed Danish police through Interpol, who facilitate worldwide police co-operation.

Pieters, ranked 40th in the world, finished second here in 2016 but missed the cut past year. "It was pretty stress-free", said Johnson who made three birdies in his last four holes.

"I hit a little eight iron into 14, which was probably a nine-iron yardage", McIlroy said. That's what's nice. I'm back in the tournament and it's something at the start of the year that I wanted to do, contend more.

Detry is on 14 under alongside last week's BMW SA Open victor Chris Paisley, who finished strongly with three birdies over the final four holes for a 66, and Andrew Johnston, who displayed further evidence of his return to form with a 66. You want to have a some nerves to feel like you're in contention, so I'm looking forward to tomorrow (Sunday).

The Englishman impressed with his remarkable 63, just one shot short of tying the National Course record, set by Henrik Stenson back in the inaugural Championship in 2006.

"You feel you are being lapped a bit, especially on a day like today when the pins are fair and there wasn't much breeze". It's random distances for 25 shots, where I'm just trying to land each shot a certain distance.

He added: "You know, it's a real amusing one for me today because I don't feel like tee-to-green I played that well".

"But to see how I've played over the past three days, and how comfortable I've been out there hitting certain shots, scoring, getting up-and-down, and just really getting my golf head back on, I've been really pleased". "We hit driver wherever we can and the rest of it is good ball-striking and going at a couple flags with wedges when you have them".
