"I sort of knew what I was expecting out there but, at the same time, you never really know", McIlroy said.

That was good enough for a share of the lead alongside Japan's Hideto Tanihara after the first round. Obviously there are some standard shots that us trick shot guys would do."And then you'll see somebody do something on the golf course with a club and ball and it looked really odd and you think 'well if I could do that a little bit different, that could be a trick shot."His love of golf started when his Mom brought him a set of clubs for his 11th birthday".

Fleetwood was playing alongside major winners Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson, and outscored both of them with a stellar performance. "Just basically did what you need to do to get a good score around the golf course".

"Eighteen greens doesn't happen very often so nice to do it around here".

Playing it the other way round to Gallacher, Ramsay bagged five birdies, including a 4 to finish, and was delighted with his start to the campaign as he bids to improve on finishing 31st in last year's Race to Dubai.

"My expectation coming into this week was that I could win", McIlroy said. "I was proud of myself the way I hung in there". "So all in all, very good morning". Doesn't matter how long I play. I think I only missed one or two greens, drove the ball well and the iron play was pretty good.

Despite being two-under early on, Johnson had to settle for a one-over 72 - the same score he opened with a year ago when finishing just a shot behind Fleetwood.

"Once I got a little bit of momentum going, I could go with it". After this start, Gallacher can feel quietly confident about repeating his top-10 finish here in 2014, though he reckons this week's test is a lot different to the Majlis Course in Dubai. "Aoki, he won on the European Tour, and I'm just trying to focus on winning on the European Tour".

Five players were tied on third place at five-under par 67, including England's Ross Fisher, Belgium's Thomas Pieters, Austria's Bernd Wiesberger, Australia's Sam Brazel and Paraguay's Fabrizio Zanotti.

A large group of nine players follow on four under, two back, including Matthew Fitzpatrick, Paul Dunne, Mikko Ilonen and Scottish duo Richie Ramsay and Stephen Gallacher.
