Golf Australia Express : Issue 21
PROLIFIC WINNER Lee Westwood will be making his seventh consecutive appearance in a bid to win this title for the first time. The World No.2 headlines the field and after sensational performances at the end of 2011 with wins in both South Africa and Thailand, the 38-year- old seems well-placed to better his previous best performance of 3rd in 2010 and claim a 38th worldwide title in the process. BIG HITTING Spaniard Alvaro Quiros loves playing gulf golf and will start as one of the favourites in Qatar. The 28-year-old has won three of his six European Tour titles in the Middle East, including triumph at Doha Golf Club in ’09. And after wrapping up 2011 in style at the Dubai World Championship, Quiros will start his 2012 campaign with great confidence. A victory and two runners-up placings in his last three visits to Doha GC bodes well for the Spaniard.
