(Adam Davy/PA Wire)

Estimated reading time: 6 minutes


Pablo Larrazábal had a difficult front nine, losing his overnight lead after three bogeys, a double bogey at the par-5 9th and a single birdie to make the turn in 40.

The Spaniard recovered, starting with an eagle at the 10th and three more birdies, to close with a 71 and regain a one-shot lead in the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters.

“I went bogey-double bogey on eight and nine to shoot 40 on the front nine but I said to (caddie) Raul, come on, yesterday we shot six under on the back and we know that we like the back.

“We know that we’re playing good enough, we’re not playing to shoot 40, we’re playing much better than 40 on the front nine.”

“It was one of those days where you have to keep working and believe in the way you’ve been playing the last month or so and to keep fighting. There are a lot of birdie chances on the back and I took a few.

“It is even harder mentally when you shoot 40 on the front nine and you’re two over after three. Mentally you have to recover, you have to believe in the shots you plan and the shots you hit.

“That’s what we did and it paid off. To shoot one under par after going four over, it proves to us that we are in a good mental spot. We are ready to make mistakes and to recover them.”

American Chase Hanna (66) and South African Wilco Nienaber (68) remained bogey-free to tie in second place at 8-under alongside Polands Adrian Meronk (70).

Frenchman Romain Langasque signed for a 71 to lie in solo fifth place at 7-under.
