PADRAIG HARRINGTON HAS enjoyed a promising start to the Dubai Championship.

The Dubliner shot an opening round of 68 to sit on four-under par, which means he is currently tied for 26th.

Harrington had nine consecutive pars on the front nine, picking up five birdies and a bogey on the back nine.

Dane Joachim Hansen is leading the way after an excellent 63 that puts him two shots ahead of the chasing pack — South Africa’s Dean Burmester, Frenchman Antoine Rozner and English pair Andy Sullivan and Paul Waring. Tommy Fleetwood is one shot further back.

County Down’s Jonathan Caldwell carded a one-under par round of 71.
