Rafael Cabrera-Bello Shines In Dubai
over 1 year ago
Today Rafael Cabrera-Bello shot a bogey-free, four under par 68 at the windswept Emirates Golf Club to claim the Omega Dubai Desert Classic by one stroke over fellow FJ Ambassador Lee Westwood. Rafa captured the first round lead courtesy of a flawless nine under par 63, that included birdies on nine of the first eleven holes. Over the next two days, he stayed one stroke off Westwood's 54-hole lead by adding rounds of 69 and 70.

. During the final round Rafa's style on the course translated to his golf game, making 3 birdies over the final nine holes, including a crucial birdie on the 17th to win by one stroke.
Rafa was elated after the win, "With so many big, big names I felt really proud of myself. I wanted to fight, I stayed calm, I did everything that I’ve read we should do in these type of situations," continuing, "Just the fact that I was able today to be successful just proves to me that I'm working on the right line...It's just a huge, huge confidence and huge morale boost.”
This is Cabera-Bello's second European Tour title. It, also, gains him an exemption through the 2014 season on the European Tour and secures him a place in the 2012 Bridgestone Invitational and 2012 WGC - HSBC Champions.
