Doha: Scotland’s Ewen Ferguson overcame the strong wind on the final day with a birdie and an eagle over his last three holes to secure his maiden DP World Tour title at the 25th Qatar Masters here on Sunday.
Ferguson, who secured a one-stroke victory from American Chase Hanna, carded a 2-under par 70 in the final round to romp home with an aggregate score of 7-under par 281 at the Doha Golf Club.
“It’s unbelievable and incredible,” said the 25-year-old after winning his maiden DP World Tour victory in 37th appearance.
Ferguson became the fourth Scottish to win the Qatar Masters after Andrew
Coltart (1998) and Paul Lawrie (1999 & 2012).
“I can’t believe it. Really just speechless that I’ve won and I’ve just seen that I might move up to 11th in the Rankings,” he added.
He began the final round three shots off leaders Matthew Jordan and Adrian Meronk.
A double bogey on the second dented his challenge but he played the final three holes in three under – including an eagle on the 16th – to secure the win.
He finished on seven under while American Chase Hanna was a shot behind to finish second.
