There was more to hope today but my driving was not pinpoint accurate on those small fairways.I still don't understand how the birdies on 2-4-7 didn't fall this afternoon. So let's round off with style my last round before the birth of our first child...Narrow fairways and thick rough will play an important role this week.I feel I'm in great shape, technically and physically, pretty confident also in what's in my bag, same Callaway clubs as the end of last year, same team, same partners, nothing fancy!The field is first class, really impressive, looking forward...
Thomas Pieters had some fun today with his -7, it's a course he likes, he always plays strong golf here in Abu Dhabi. Top display from Tom Detry at -6 and also super round for my friend Alex Levy with a -7 today, the same score as Pieters This is the real start of the 2018 season.
Today was the pro-am at then some training with Jerome till .
The course is in superb shape, long with thick rough, greens are very "grainy" and fast and nevertheless each year it's been won over -20!
Three tournaments in a row with first Abu Dhabi, then the Desert Classic in Dubai and the Maybank Malaysian.
Fine tuning my preparation in the South of France till Friday with Mich Vanmeerbeek, then flying to Dubai for 2 days training in the Middle East Climat and heading on Monday to Abu Dhabi.
