European Tour Power Rankings: Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship

Chief referee John Paramor has increased powers to punish players for slow play

Chief referee John Paramor has increased powers to punish players for slow play

It's just a place I like coming to.

"There were things that I needed to do to take care of it and I didn't do that". I think I need to really look at and pick courses that suit me and that I've done well on in the past and make sure I go back there.

"I suppose it's incredible, the difference a year can make", said Lowry.

Koepka won the 2019 US PGA Championship - his fourth major title - and has been world number one for 44 straight weeks, but he revealed he has had to make changes to his inner circle after conceding he handled his injury poorly past year.

Bryson DeChambeau has insisted that he will be happy to comply with the strictest regulations on slow play that will take effect in this week's HSBC Abu Dhabi Championship.

"I don't write my goals down".

Garcia, who has ended his two-year association with Callaway this month, said: "I've been practising hard and I'm excited for it". Dealt with it the whole year.

Sergio said: "Winning in January is just positive".

"It gives you a lot of confidence". Everybody's dinged up a little bit.

Burrow's parents are arguably the state's biggest fans of purple and gold, and often fly out all season to watch their son play. He passed for 5,671 yards and won the 2019 Heisman Trophy.

Brooks Koepka was talking ahead of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship presented by EGA, where they were predicting the future of the game and how it could change over the next 10 years.

RISING star Viktor Hovland got his week in the UAE off to a great start with victory in the Hero Challenge, at Yas Marina Circuit on Tuesday.

The 22-year-old PGA Tour player has an easier route to the Olympics - providing he can finish inside the leading 60 men who will qualify.

The former US Amateur Champion is another man who also has the Ryder Cup on his radar, as the Norwegian joins the stellar field in Abu Dhabi playing on a sponsor's invite.

With this being the first Rolex Series event of the season, the odds are high that the victor of this event will take the top spot on the Race to Dubai leaderboard come Sunday evening. I missed showing up to an event, preparing for something, because I haven't had anything to prepare for.

After three months rehabilitating an "excruciating" left knee injury, Koepka returns to competition at this week's Abu Dhabi Championship still not completely recovered but keen to test the state of the joint.

Kartik, making his first attempt at the PGTI Qualifying School, said, "I played well in the Pre Qualifying having finished tied fourth in Pre Q I".

His four-under total of 280 broke the Golden Bear's record total set in the 1960 US Open, at Cherry Hills, by two shots.

The European Tour event, which begins on Thursday, is Koepka's first event since October, when he injured his left knee after slipping on concrete at the CJ Cup in South Korea.
