Qatar Masters heading for thrilling finish

Doha: The Qatar Masters was heading for a thrilling conclusion on Saturday with South African Brandan Grace among six players tied for the lead midway through the final round at the Doha golf Club.

A play-off is a distinct possibility for the second consecutive year after Sergio Garcia pulled off a fine win over Mikko Ilonen in 2014.

The overnight leading quartet of Grace, Bernd Wiesberger, Emiliano Grillo and Marc Warren continued their neck and neck battle with 14-under par aggregates with the final few holes remaining to be played.

They were joined by Frenchman Gregory Bourdy and Eddie Pepperell with South Korean An Byeong-hun, hoping to become the first Asian to win the event, a shot behind.

Garcia, who blew his chances of becoming only the first man to win consecutive Qatar Masters titles with a 77 in the third round on Friday, recovered somewhat by shooting a 69 to finish on four-under 284.
