Paul Lawrie won the Qatar Masters shooting a seven under par 65 in the final round. Lawrie, in FJ ICON and StaSof, began the day with a one stroke lead and only made one birdie on the first eight holes. Then, on the par five ninth hole Lawrie chipped in for eagle to increase his lead. On the back nine, Lawrie added four more birdies including another holed chip from just off the 17th green to take a four stroke lead heading into the last hole. Finishing up with a routine par, Lawrie wrapped up the victory.
Lawrie later commented on his play this week, "I played lovely all week. But today I think tee to green, apart from my tee shot on 10th, I can't play much better than that."
This is his seventh European Tour victory and second win at the Qatar Masters. The win catapults Lawrie into the top 50 on the official world golf rankings and earns him a spot in the WGC Accenture Match Play in two weeks.
