Khaldoon Al-Mubarak took time off from the Kaka saga yesterday to watch Paul Casey take a commanding lead in the third round of the Abu Dhabi Championship here. The ManchesterCity chairman must have been impressed. Perhaps not £100m imp-ressed, but impressed none the less.

Sandy Lyle looks around at the rest of the field vying to become Europe's next Ryder Cup captain and reasons that his time must be nigh. When the European Tour players' committee convene at their much-mooted meeting on Tuesday in Abu Dhabi and hear that Jose Maria Olazabal is still refusing to put his name forward for next year's match, then how can they fail to reach the glaringly obvious choice?

On the day that Colin Montgomerie equalled his worst score in a major, Justin Rose made a welcome return to form. The humiliating experience of shooting 84 could signal the end of the Scot's major odyssey, but for the Englishman this could just be the inspiration he needs to put his march to the big-time back on its feet.

Lee Westwood admitted it would be a relief to leave windy Royal Birkdale after finishing the Open 20 shots over par. The Ryder Cup star struggled on the greens all week, making just four birdies in 72 holes with two of those coming in his final three-over-par round of 73.

It's the surest indication that summer is finally here. The shadows lengthen on the closely cropped sward amid the vibrant azaleas – thousands of miles away in Augusta.
