Sunday 25 January
Alvaro Quiros won the Qatar Masters by three shots, but that doesn't begin to tell the story.
Started the day with a one shot lead, but a poor front nine where he missed two very short putts left him in a tie for the lead, and he looked pretty wobbly at that stage. However he got his game together, rolled in some good putts and by the 15th was two shots in front. Looking good you might think, then he hit his second shot into the water !!!! What a kick in the nuts. But, he had a 15 footer for a bogey and needed it to hold on to a share of the lead with Stenson - and he holed it, brilliant putt. That was the final twist. He birdied 16 and 17 and that was about it - easy peasy lol !!!
Absolutely huge win for me and, following on from Zach Johnson last week, has turned the month right round. Superb tipping from the Legends !!
Racing not so good, just three selections today - all from the Tipping Legends and two seconds in Ireland, both trading at short prices in running.
Off out for a meal now, so back later with the weekly scores on the doors.
