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



“It’s unreal, even in my biggest dreams, I couldn’t imagine anything like this happening to be honest. I didn’t hole anything really today, and it’s just unreal. I don’t really know what to say, it’s probably the biggest moment of my career.”

The Frenchman, who moves to ninth place in the Race to Dubai Rankings presented by Rolex, carded a stunning 68 in high winds on day three and entered the final 18 holes at Education City Golf Club three shots off the lead.




In calmer conditions in round four, he hit the top of the leaderboard as he turned in 33, but Italian Guido Migliozzi joined him at the summit as he signed for an impressive bogey free 65.

“I’m really happy with my game today,” said Migliozzi. “I played solid from tee to green and also on the putting green it was better. I was able to read the greens better than yesterday. Yesterday it was very tough with all the wind and that was difficult. Today I played really solid and I’m really happy.



“The leaderboards on the course were not working so I wasn’t concentrating on that. I knew that if I had a really good round I could move up the leaderboard. I did a good job on the course with my caddie.”

The 28-year-old left himself a long way from the pin on the last, it looked like Rozner needed two putts for a play-off but he drained an incredible double breaker over the ridge to sign for a 67 and finish at eight under.




“Amazing feeling,” said Rozner. “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.”

India’s Gaganjeet Bhullar and South African Darren Fichardt finished alongside Migliozzi a shot off the lead, two clear of Welshman Jamie Donaldson and England’s Richard McEvoy.

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.

“For sure the first win helped a lot. I wasn’t really feeling any stress down the straight, so that is a good thing. I think two-time winner on the European Tour is a huge deal, so I am just going to enjoy the next few days as much as I can.”

“I think the road is still long. I am hanging around there, but the Ryder Cup is in a long time. It is definitely a goal and a dream to play in the Ryder Cup, but still a long way to go.”

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.
