Lowry recovers from early wobble to retain Abu Dhabi lead

England's Ian Poulter (69) leapt to solo third place at 12-under par with an eagle on his final hole, smashing a three wood to eight feet and making the putt.

Back to back bogeys on the second and third holes, were cancelled out with birdies on the fifth and seventh.

"It's probably the best pre-season I've ever done, and it showed".

The Irishman, now ranked 75th in the world but without a win since his triumph at the World Golf Championship-Bridgestone Invitational in August 2015, was bogey-free on what looked a demanding Abu Dhabi Golf Club course with narrow fairways and juicy rough.

After a rocky start to his second round, three-time European Tour victor Lowry found the form that helped him match Henrik Stenson's 13 year old record on day one at Abu Dhabi Golf Club, bouncing back from two early bogeys with four birdies to get to 12 under par.

"I'm really happy with that", Lowry said.

'I started laughing when I birdied the last of them, it's unbelievable to have played those nine holes in just 18 shots.' Lowry freely admits that one of the reasons why his career has not kicked on in recent years is because he has been too hard on himself - and that was certainly the case following that fateful US Open, where he coughed up a four shot lead.

The Abingdon golfer, who started on six under, got off to a nightmare start with a double-bogey at the opening hole. Gave myself a lot of chances. He shot a 3-under 69 to move to 14 under. To be honest, right from the start, I really feel like I played pretty well today.

Angel Solorio, 18, went to school Monday and Tuesday at Banning High, afraid that absences would be held against him. On the second day, the number of students who didn't show up increased. "I've been hearing since the 1980s when Mr.

Lee Westwood, who ended a four-year victory drought on the European Tour in November, had a 68 and was two shots back. "I didn't convert as many as I would have liked, but I'm pretty happy to shoot 70, and to be in the lead going into the weekend is always nice". 'It's no secret that it took me a while to get over that but it's a long time ago now, and what I took from that day that will hopefully help me here is to stay aggressive, keep playing my shots and try to make birdies, ' he said. That's the way I play golf.

Dustin Johnson finished with back-to-back birdies to post a level-par 72, with two-time defending champion Tommy Fleetwood a further stroke back after matching Johnson's total.

"A bad iron shot at the 12th killed me mentally for a few holes", said the Aberdonian.
