2017 Omega Dubai Desert ClassicGlorious GARCIA MAKES IT A DOZEN IN THE DESERT
"It's a great start to the year so we're going to try to keep going the same way." - Garcia
Garcia celebrated his 250th European Tour appearance in some style, claiming his first win since the 2014 Commercial Bank Qatar Masters and potentially moving back into the top ten of the Official World Golf Ranking.

Garcia entered the final round with a three-shot lead and while back-to-back birdies from Stenson on the 13th and 14th applied some pressure, the 37 year old produced a stunning tee-shot on the 15th and a brilliant up-and-down on the next to ease to victory.
"I'm very happy with the way I played. The way I handled some of the key moments and to beat Henrik, we all know how great a player he is." - Garcia
His first victory in Dubai means his 12 European Tour wins have come in eight different countries.
