The world number seven finished last season with a win and is confident he will add a few more trophies to his cabinet this year.

"This is my seventh season in a row where I started Abu Dhabi so I am really excited and really excited to be back here," said McIlroy.

"I have played well here before, I had a couple of chances to win and have not quite got over the line but it is a golf course that I really like and hopefully I can do well this week.

"I expect myself to be in contention a lot more in tournaments and I only won once last season and by the standards I set myself that is not enough.

"But I feel like I am playing much better and I feel like I am starting the season on a good solid base and hopefully I get off to a fast start and keep it going from there."
