Greetings from Abu Dhabi where myself and Jeremy Ellwood are camped for the next week or so. Stay online for breaking news and details of what we have lined up for you in the coming issues.

Don’t forget that you can follow Golf Monthly on Twitter, we are @GolfMonthly. There’s a real buzz around the place and with Padraig Harrington firing and opening round of 65, we’re set up well for an exciting weekend of golf.

It’s a busy fews days so these drinks carts are proving very popular on the course.

Earlier this week we caught up with Paul Casey and Edoardo Molinari. The former was in a confident mood, as he normally is, but then he has won this event twice already. 

We’re also here with photographer Kevin Murray to get some instruction shots with the players and we’re sure you’ll reap the benefits over the coming months.

Stay online for March issue news. The guys in the office have news of a fantastic competition coming up and there’s more on the Golf Monthly Centenary Society. 

Enjoy the golf and we’ll have more updates soon.

Where next?
