McIlroy content with Dubai opener

Rory McIlroy is pleased after his first-round 66 leaves him one shot behind leader Luke Donald at the World Tour Championship in Dubai.

"I hit the ball beautifully from tee to green but I just wasn't making the most of my chances on the front nine," McIlroy told BBC Sport NI.

"However, I stayed patient and got the five birdies on the back nine. I played really well."
