Marshall wins Dubai Open
Andrew Marshall won the Shaikh Maktoum Dubai Open in dramatic fashion after overcoming fellow Englishman Adam Sagar in a tense play-off at Al Badia Golf Club. Marshall conjured a piece of magic at the first extra hole, the par-5 18th, drilling his six iron from 195 yards to within 10 feet and twoputted to win his second MENA Tour title. “It feels nice to get the job done,” said Marshall. “I played quite nicely, but my putting wasn’t up toe the mark and I missed quite a few short ones coming home. “But I am loving this little run on the MENA Golf Tour. If I can keep the momentum going it will be great.” Marshall made the play-off after a battling final round of 73 left him tied on eight-under with Sagar. But Sagar could only find the water on the 18th as he took second place. Meanwhile, amateur star Rayhan Thomas had to settle for a share of ninth on three-under.
