SWINDON'S David Howell looks set for a middle-order finish at the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship after a decent third-round effort.

The 38-year-old fired a level-par 72 at Abu Dhabi Golf Club, a one-hour jaunt from his winter residence in Dubai.

That kept Howell level for the tournament and he was tied-52nd at the time of writing.
