Danny Willett wins Dubai Desert Classic

Englishman birdies last to win by a shot

Danny Willett held his nerve to sink a 15-foot birdie putt at the 18th to win the Omega Dubai Desert Classic.

The Englishman's intervention saw him take the title, one shot clear of compatriot Andy Sullivan and Spain's Rafael Cabrera-Bello.

World number two Rory McIlroy finished four shots adrift of Willett after firing a final round of 65.

Holding a one-shot lead overnight, Willett bogeyed the second to slip back alongside Cabrera-Bello but he quickly made amends, birdieing three out of four holes to take control of the tournament.

However, the 28-year-old then dropped a shot at the ninth to see his lead cut to one but another birdie at 12 saw him lead Sullivan by two, the latter having just holed his fourth birdie of the day to move into second place.

A three-putt bogey from Willett at 14 meant his lead was a single stroke heading into the final stretch but Sullivan sank a 10-footer at the last to sign for a 68 and a share of the lead.

Cabrera-Bello two-putted from the edge of the green at the last hole to temporarily make it a three-way tie but Willett held his nerve to drain his putt from 15 feet to claim the title, his fourth on the European Tour.
