Omega Dubai Desert Classic

Back to work for Lee. when he plays in the Omega Dubai Desert Classic at Emirates Golf Club in Dubai, this week.

He tees off with Ross Fisher and Kristoffer Broberg at 7.45 (GMT + 4 hours) from the 10th on Thursday and 12.05 from the first on Friday.

With two birdies and a double bogey (18th) on the outward nine and two bogeys, a birdie and a double bogey on the way home, Lee carded a 3-over 75 and lies way down the leaderboard following the first round.

"I'm going through a divorce and found it nearly impossible to concentrate on golf, so I understand what happened in terms of my results last year," Lee said in an ESPN interview
"How I played didn't really concern me, but now I'm back living in the UK permanently and trying to factor in when I see my kids and which events I play around that.
"I just want to get some consistency back in game and start to enjoy it again and being able to concentrate on what I'm trying to do."

Lee was 1-over on the outward nine and had a hat-trick of birdies from 11, following with another birdie at 16. A double bogey at the last saw him 1 over for the event and  missing the cut set at par.
