Rafa Cabrera Bello and his Ryder Cup team mate Lee Westwood are out in 33.

Two birdies on eight and nine have put the latter into a strong position heading into his back nine. It might be a big ask for the 23-time tour winner to get close to Stenson, but in this game it's always unwise to be too confident.

Nothing like an eagle to brighten up your round.

Ross Fisher has been going steadily through his front nine, but an eagle at the eighth sends him to two under par. 

Fisher came close to victory last season at the Porsche European Open, losing to Alex Levy in a tense play-off. Could this be the year he gets his sixth win on tour?

Marc Warren on his opening 66:

"I felt as though I finished the season last year pretty strongly and got off to a good start again today.

"It just proves that what I've been doing the last couple weeks, what I've been working on, is hopefully going to take me in the right direction. 

"Started on 10 and made birdie there and birdied 11, as well. I was three under after four, so it was the perfect start after seven or eight weeks off."

You wouldn't know Jordan L Smith and Alexander Björk were fresh from the Challenge Tour.

Both men have started life on tour in style, with top seven finishes for the duo last week. They've also began well here in Abu Dhabi. Smith is in a tie for seventh after an opening 68 and Björk is one shot further back.

Nice work, fellas.
