McDowell happy with start in Dubai Desert Classic

Graeme McDowell is happy with his opening round of 68 at the Dubai Desert Classic on Thursday.

The Northern Irishman four-under-par score placed him in joint eighth - three strokes behind leader Sergio Garcia of Spain.

McDowell described it as a 'decent day' during which he hit the fairways a lot better than he did at the previous week's Qatar Masters.
