Aussies wants lessons from current champ

By Staff Writer

In-form Australian Geoff Ogilvy is seeking some help from reigning champion Paul Casey as he bids to win next week's Abu Dhabi Golf Championship at the first time of asking.

"Winning in Hawaii was the very best way to start the year and I will be hoping to keep the run going in Abu Dhabi," said the world No9, who won the season-opening SBS Championship for the second time on Sunday.

"I can't wait to get [to Abu Dhabi]. I don't feel I'll be at a disadvantage not having played there before as I'll have the momentum from this victory.

"Maybe I'll try and sort out a practise round with Paul and try a pick up a tip or two on how to play the course from him as he obviously knows his way around pretty well."
