Frenchman cards eight-under 64 for a tournament-winning 25-under, while Sullivan wilts
Frenchman Antoine Rozner made a brilliant charge on the fourth and final day to deny Englishman Andy Sullivan and win the inaugural Golf in Dubai Championship at the Jumeirah Golf Estates on Saturday afternoon.
The 27-year-old Parisian knocked in an eight-under 64 on the day for a tournament-winning 25-under on the Fire Course.
Rozner, ranked 204 in the world and placed 55th in the Race to Dubai, won by two strokes over compatriot Mike Lorenzo-Vera, for his first European Tour victory in his rookie season.
Rozner’s previous two wins had come on the Challenge Tour when he had won back-to-back events in May last year. He had tasted success in the Challenge de Espana before emerging triumphant in the Prague Golf Challenge.
“(The victory) means a lot. It is such a strange year and we’ve been through so much, all over the world. To be able to get it done today in such a nice fashion, eight-under, it is amazing,” an emotional Rozner said after his round.
Rozner, who finished eighth in the Order of Merit last season to earn a spot for this year’s European Tour, revealed that he hadn’t been keeping track of the leaderboard and that perhaps helped him make the charge.
“I’m going to be very honest, the first time I saw I was in the lead was on the 18th green. I didn’t really look at the leaderboards. I had no idea what’s going on and that’s a good thing. So, let’s just keep playing the way we have been playing and keep being aggressive. And in the end, it really paid off,” he said.
Rozner rolled in seven birdies and an eagle but also had a bogey in his round as vaulted four spots. He had shot nine-under, three-under and five-under in his previous rounds.
Lorenzo-Vera, meanwhile, carded a seven-under 65 on the final day.
Sullivan, who had set a course record on the opening day and had led for most of the tournament, could only come up with a two-under 70 for a tournament 23-under to finish tied second.
