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.
