Thomas Bjorn kept his cool in his golf clothing to win the Qatar Master by four shots on Sunday (February 6th).
The Dane shot a three-under-par 69 in the final round to finish four shots ahead of his nearest rivals.
Having held the overnight lead by a single shot, the Ryder Cup vice-captain showed remarkable consistency to par the first 14 holes before grabbing birdies at 15, 16 and 18 to claim his 11th European Tour title.
Lee Westwood remains at number one in the world rankings despite missing the cut as German Martin Kaymer failed to claim the top-two finish he required to overtake him.
The 26-year-old ended in a tie for 28th after struggling to find his top form, thus missing out on the chance to take the mantle as the world's best golfer.
But for Bjorn, who will celebrate his 40th birthday on February 18th, the win could prove to be a springboard for a successful season.
"It's a big win for me and hopefully it can push me on to bigger things now," he said.
"When I play golf like this I know I can be up there with the best in the world."
