Qatar Masters Ryder trio for Doha event
European Ryder Cup trio Martin Kaymer, Sergio Garcia and Paul Lawrie will compete at this month’s €1.9 million Qatar Masters, organisers said yesterday.
Kaymer, who holed the putt that ensured Europe retained the Ryder Cup in Illinois in September, has a good record in the Middle East having won the Abu Dhabi Championship three times.
“I’m playing well after a slow start to last season and it was great to finish the year with a trophy in South Africa,” the German said about his win in last month’s Sun City Challenge.
Scot Lawrie will be defending the Qatar Masters title he won 12 months ago.
Garcia, who turns 33 tomorrow, will be among the pre-tournament favourites after showing excellent form in recent months.
