Big win for Rozner in Qatar

Antoine Rozner holed an incredible 60 foot putt on the last to win his second European Tour title at the the 2021 Commercial Bank Qatar Masters.

Rozner’s victory is his second in his last six events and comes just three months after his maiden win at the Golf in Dubai Championship presented by DP World.

It means he has two wins in 29 events - making him the fastest French player ever to two victories - with just four missed cuts in an incredible start to his European Tour career since graduating from the Challenge Tour in 2019.

That 2019 campaign brought him back to back wins on the Challenge Tour, and he will now move into the top 70 in the Official World Golf Ranking - a career high.

“Amazing feeling,” he said. “Winning a golf tournament is the best feeling in the world so getting it done this way, with such a big putt on the last, I don’t know what to say but in my biggest dreams I wouldn’t have thought of anything like this. Crazy run today.

“Winning a golf tournament is so rare – to win twice in just a few months is unreal. I’m just very happy with the way I got it done today in such a dramatic fashion, it’s amazing. I’m very happy.

“I was just trying to hit a good putt. I knew two putts would be very important, I tried to get a good speed first. I thought I had a good read on it, then 15 feet short I was like ‘oh, this is going to have a chance’. I kept looking at it and it went straight in the hole - the best putt of my career.

“The Ryder Cup in Paris... I was there every day. That’s a dream for me, to compete in one. If I can get it done this year - there is still a long, long road to go. It should be a goal. It will be, for the rest of the season, a goal for me. There is still a long road to go.”
