About the Commercialbank Qatar Masters:
Chris Wood eagled the final hole to claim victory by one stroke. Wood began the day with a 3-stroke lead, but he trailed Sergio Garcia and George Coetzee by one on the final hole - until eagle secured the win. Wood finished at 18-under 270 for his first European Tour victory.
Paul Lawrie lived up to his nickname of "Chippy" with two chip-ins during the final round, en route to his second win in the Qatar Masters. Lawrie shot 65 in that final round, winning by four over Jason Day and Peter Hanson. The tournament was shortened to 54 holes after strong winds canceled the second round.
