The world golf number one Rory McIlroy coasted home to capture a second Dubai Desert Classic title last night, winning by three shots with a tournament record score of 22 under par.
The four-time major winner shot a final round 70 to claim his 10th European Tour title, ending a run of three straight second placings.
Sweden's Alex Noren finished second and the defending champion Stephen Gallacher of Scotland was third.
McIlroy's victory ended a run of three straight second place finishes, stretching back to last year.
"It's been a fantastic week for everyone who played here this week and it's just nice to get my name on that trophy again," he says.
"So I am very delighted because I was feeling like I was playing for second every time I was teeing it up, so it was time for a change and the only way I wanted to go was one better and thankfully I was able to do that today."
