Sergio García finishes 17th at Dubai


Sergio was fighting at the top of the leaderboard the first two rounds, but a bad putting weekend put an end to his title chances. In contrast, his long game excelled once again.

Nevertheless, Sergio got good news at the end of the tournament. A MRI scan he had on Sunday confirmed that he hadn’t a shoulder strain and he only will need to rest a few days to recover.

Scotland’s Stephen Gallacher won the tournament by a three shot margin over Richard Sterne.
