Nobody hit more fairways and greens than Sergio in Dubai

Another great round for Sergio García. He started the Omega Dubai Desert Classic with a 67-shot scorecard. Excellent start of the defending champion.

Sergio presented a picture book performance from tee to green. Kept squeezing the new material of Callaway. He hit more fairways than anyone else (85.7 percent) and also more greens (94.4 percent). Needless to say, his long game was the best of the field at the Emirates Golf Club.

"I'm very happy. It has been a good round. It could have been better because the conditions were splendid. I have been under control from the tee and hitting good irons. The only thing I could blame myself is not  been a bit more aggressive on the back nine,“ Sergio admitted after finishing the round.
