A pair on Englishmen dueled it out down the stretch at the Qatar Masters, but it was Eddie Pepperell who edged Oliver Fisher by one-stroke after a closing 70. The 27 year old notched his first career European Tour victory, moving up to 13th in the Race to Dubai standings. After starting with eight pars, Pepperell added three birdies, offset by one bogey, on the final two holes, dodging a birdie try from Fischer on the last to secure the win.
Next week, the top European Tour stars will be heading to the WGC-Mexico Championship, a co-sanctioned event. The European Tour will be in South Africa for the Tshwane Open.
