Viktor Hovland shot the lowest round of the day before holding his nerve in a thrilling play-off against surprise package Richard Bland to claim a maiden Dubai Desert Classic title in front of thousands of spectators on a packed Majlis Course at Emirates Golf Club.

After starting Sunday six shots adrift of the lead, the Norwegian starlet, 24, held a routine three-foot birdie putt to claim the winner's prize of USD 1.36 million, after Bland's own four-foot birdie effort lipped agonisingly out the hole. The Englishman, 49 next week, claimed USD 880,000 in prize money after a final round of 68, which included birdies on holes 17 and 18.

Hovland's win secured a second DP World Tour victory in his 22nd appearance, and his first Rolex Series Event title. "This is pretty wild – especially, as I didn't really think this was possible going into today," said Hovland, who moves up to third in the game's official world rankings. "I knew I had to shoot a really low number, a lot of things had to go my way and I'm thankful that they did."
