Rory McIlroy confirmed he is back on top form with a stunning 63 as the first round of the $2.5 million Dubai Desert Classic got underway Thursday with a barrage of birdies.McIlroy said that the round and score was one of his finest for a while.Playing down the easier back nine to start with, McIlroy, on the rebound after a frustrating 2013, had five birdies in seven holes from the 12th to briefly take the lead at the turn.A birdie at the second and a 10-foot putt for eagle at the third saw McIlroy back on the pace.Woods, meanwhile, started well with four birdies down the back nine and while he struggled for accuracy off the tee on the way in, his short game was good enough to avoid any bogeys.
