Collin Morikawa had plenty of thinking to do on the short drive up the coast from Abu Dhabi to Dubai.

The British Open champion had just finished tied for 62nd at the Abu Dhabi Championship on Sunday and the guy with one of the purest swings in golf was concerned.

"I didn't know where the golf ball was going," Morikawa said of his tough week on Yas Links when gusts of up to 40 mph (64 kph) caused havoc to a strong field.
