Jose Coceres 2000 Dubai Desert Classic winner which this year was again held at a different venue.

Jose Coceres bridged a six-year gap when he added the Dubai Desert Classic title to the Heineken Open Catalonia which he won in 1994 when he secured a two-stroke victory over Paul McGinley and Patrik Sjoland at Dubai Creek Golf and Yacht Club.

The 36-year-old from Buenos Aires, who was born into poverty but has emerged as one of Argentina’s strongest golfing exports, allowed himself the luxury of a double bogey six at the final hole and still had two strokes to spare over the field.

Coceres, who held a four stroke lead at halfway and increased his advantage to five after 54 holes, shot a closing round of 73, one over par, for a winning 14 under par total of 274. McGinley and Sjoland both fired 67s to overhaul several players and claim a share of second place.
