Twelve months ago, victory at Kapalua was followed by success at the WGC-Accenture Match Play before he lost his bearings. "I think I've got an awareness of where I kind of went a bit astray last year," Ogilvy said after winning the season-opening SBS Championship on Sunday.

"I never started as well as I did last year and this year it looks like I have started pretty well again too.

"Hopefully, I will sit down and not make the mistakes like I did last year. I think I forced it a little bit when the game went a bit awry, instead of waiting for it to come back," said Ogilvy. "So hopefully I can just be patient and if I have a bad few weeks there, just let it come back."

Ogilvy has now leapfrogged Rory McIlroy into ninth on the world ladder, forcing the 20-year-old back to 10th. The Australian and the Irish youngster both play in next week's Abu Dhabi Championship
