OMEGA DUBAI DESERT CLASSIC

January 25, 2018

Sergio Garcia

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Q. Your thoughts on that opening round?
SERGIO GARCIA: I'm happy with it. The conditions were absolutely perfect. Just a shame, maybe two or three chances on the back nine that could have gone a little bit better. Other than that, it was good. I felt like I played quite solid. Gave myself a lot of chances, a lot of good opportunities, some putts, made some, missed a couple, but overall it was a good round.

Q. Looked slightly frustrated. Was that the highest score you could have shot?
ALEXANDER BJÖRK: Probably. But I wouldn't say frustrated. I was obviously trying to do my best out there. I hit two or 3-putts that looked like they weren't going to go in, didn't go in and then I hit a couple that weren't quite as good. You know, overall, it's a good start of the week. I know that I'm going to have to shoot around 5- or 6-under every day if I want to have a chance. So I got five today so hopefully I can keep doing that.

Q. How good is it out there condition-wise?
ALEXANDER BJÖRK: Yeah, it's perfect. It was perfect. Not much wind. A little bit at the end but really probably, I don't know, like half a club or something like that. So not much. So it was nice to see that we were able to take advantage of it.
