DOHA, Qatar — Former British Open champion Paul Lawrie chipped in for an eagle and a birdie on his way to winning the Qatar Open on Sunday, shooting a 7-under 65 to hold off Jason Day and Peter Hanson.
Lawrie finished with a 15-under total of 201 to win his seventh European Tour event and his second in Qatar. The 43-year-old Scot becomes the second oldest winner on the tour behind Miguel Angel Jimenez.
Lawrie came into the final round with a one-shot lead over Nicolas Colsaerts. The Belgian's challenge quickly faded, but he was replaced by Day, who mounted a charge with a string of birdies but fell off the pace on the back nine. Hanson also made a late run, sinking a birdie putt on 14 and chipping in for eagle on 16.
