Scot Gallacher wins in Dubai

6:22 am on 4 February 2013

The Scottish golfer Stephen Gallacher is celebrating his second career victory on the European Tour, nine years after his first.

38 year old Gallacher fired a timely eagle two on the par-4 16th hole to win the Dubai Desert Classic, by three shots from South Africa's Richard Sterne, who'd led from day one.

Gallacher's 22-under par score was the lowest total in the history of the tournament, and his victory could well earn him a first start at the Masters in April.
