ALVARO QUIROS WINS HIS SECOND PGA TOUR EVENT
Sun, 11 Dec 2011 08:40 PM EST

Alvaro Quiros holed a 40-foot eagle putt on the 18th to clinch a two-shot win over 1999 English Open champion Paul Lawrie at the Dubai World Championship on Sunday as No. 1-ranked Luke Donald became the first golfer to win both the PGA Tour and European Tour cash titles. Football odds

The 34-year-old Donald, who won the PGA title early on in the year, had to close better than ninth or hope Rory McIlroy failed to win the tournament. He came third while McIIroy, who has struggled with a lingering virus all week, finished in a tie for Eleventh at 9-under 279. That left McIlroy more than $1.34 million behind Donald in the money race. Football spreads

Quiros had a final-round 5-under 67 on the Earth Course at Jumeirah Golf Estates to complete at 269. Donald was three shots behind Quiros after he ran off three birdies in a row for a 6-under 66. Peter Hanson of Sweden was fourth, another 2 shots back, and Masters champion Charl Schwartzel was in fifth another shot behind.

The big-hitting Quiros came into the final day with a two-shot lead but wasted it after he had 3 bogeys on the front 9 to go with 5 birdies. Lawrie, who led after the first day, took the lead after he notched 5 birdies in his first 8 holes.

But Lawrie bogeyed the Twelfth after an approach shot missed the green and Quiros birdied the 14th to take over the lead for good. Lawrie’s short game continued to haunt him when an errant chip on Sixteen cost him a birdie chance. Then, the 42-year-old Lawrie missed a 6-foot birdie putt at the 17th that would have tied it.

Quiros managed to reach the Eighteenth green in two while Lawrie was there in three. Rather than take no risks, Quiros got the win with a long eagle putt. The Spaniard pumped his fist as the group cheered. The win was just Quiros ‘ second this year on the tour — after the Dubai Desert Classic — and 6th overall on the tour.
