Alvaro Quiros completed his own Dubai double as he added the Dubai World Championship presented by DP World to his Dubai Desert Classic title.

The Spaniard holed a monster eagle putt on the final green to finish two shots clear of Scotland’s Paul Lawrie.

Quiros was two ahead of Lawrie overnight and doubled that with three opening birdies.

But the Scot birdied five of the first seven and when Quiros had his third bogey at the ninth he trailed by one.

Lawrie went from rough to sand on the 12th for a bogey that brought them level again, Quiros sank a seven-foot birdie putt on the long 14th and, after Lawrie had missed from similar range at the short 17th, there was one in it playing the last.

The former Open Champion had eagled the 18th in the third round and Quiros had bogeyed it, but on their return, the eagle came from Europe's biggest hitter for a round of 67 and 19 under par total.

Lawrie matched that score for solo second, one ahead of Luke Donald – whose 66 secured The Race to Dubai title.

Quiros' win has lifted him back into the Official World Golf Ranking's top 50 - all the way to 21st, in fact - just in time to secure a place in next April's Masters Tournament.
