Rozner tastes victory in Dubai

Frenchman claims his maiden European Tour title

Antoine Rozner claimed his maiden European Tour title at the Golf in Dubai Championship presented by DP World after a great final round performance helped the Frenchman come from four shots back to seal a two-stroke victory at Jumeirah Golf Estates.

The 27-year-old was neck-and-neck with Andy Sullivan down the stretch but it was a superlative second shot into the par-five 18th hole which sealed the deal as a two-putt birdie earned the European Tour Rookie an eight-under final round 64 and a twenty-five-under total.
The win moved Rozner to twenty-fourth in the Race to Dubai Rankings presented by Rolex as he looks forward to a debut in next week's DP World Championship, Dubai, confident in the knowledge that his two Challenge Tour victories in 2019 came in back-to-back fashion.

Sullivan, who had led the field after each of the opening three rounds, had a disappointing day as two bogeys contributed to his worst round of the week, a two-under 70 which left him in a share of second alongside three others.
Sullivan’s English compatriot Matt Wallace enjoyed a stunning back nine which comprised five birdies and four pars to sign for a four-under 68 and a joint second-place finish. 
Mike Lorenzo Vera’s second successive 65 meant he joined the English duo on 23 under, as did Italy’s Francesco Laporta, who finished with four birdies in a row for a closing 66 and the best result of his European Tour career.
