Scott Jamieson signed for a bogey-free 9-under 63 to take the opening lead of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship, the first Rolex Series event of the season.

“Just really solid all day to be honest,” said the Scotsman. “It’s eight weeks off from tournament golf out here so you’re always a little bit on edge probably to start off the day but birdie at the first kind of settled any edge there was and it was just really solid all day.

“This is the first off-season I haven’t actually peeled the skin back and tried to figure out how to get better.

“When I started practising a couple of weeks ago, I kept telling myself that you have to hit the ground running here because it could ultimately dictate how your season goes. If you miss the first two cuts of the year, then all of a sudden you feel like you’re miles behind because there’s such a great prize for the first couple of events.

“So I was aware of that, so mentally I was trying to be as prepared as I could be.”
