Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship: Martin Kaymer leads after first round
The Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship went underway at the Abu Dhabi Golf Club on Thursday, 20 January, 2011. Here is a quick glance at the first round leaderboard.
After completing the first twelve holes of the course, Martin Kaymer surged into a temporary lead. The German teed off from the back and picked four birdies to score 32 in the first half. The edge of four points boosted his confidence, which resulted in
a birdie pair at the opening holes of the front. Despite the blooming motivation, the player lost a point at the par-4 third hole owing to a missed par putt.
Alexander Noren was chasing the German with increasing pace and was a stroke behind. The Swede gave a superb performance on the back and picked up four birdies before trading a birdie on the front for a bogey. He was five-under-par after seventeen holes.
The three-time major winner Padraig Harrington was speeding towards the top with a score of five-under-par after fifteen holes. The Irish had a blemish-free scorecard. However, he was left with three more holes to the end the first round.
England’s Gary Boyd completed his first round and was hovering on the fourth spot after composing a score of four-under-par. The veteran netted four birdies without dropping a single shot. He was joined by a Danish player, Anders Hansen who replicated an
identical score made by Boyd without any loss.
Johan Edfors, who started out with speed of a gun, picked up four birdies on the front and two in the back, but missed the fairway twice, resulting in two bogeys. However, the Swede was left with one last hole and was standing shoulder-to shoulder with Rafa
Echenique. The player from Argentina was four-under after thirteen holes. His scorecard comprised of two birdies and one fantastic eagle.
World number one Lee Westwood was standing at the tenth spot after dropping a shot at the par-4 sixth hole.
