Eddie Pepperell withstood a nervy finish to claim a maiden European Tour victory in the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters at Doha GC; his final round of 2-under-par 35-35=70 leaving him one shot clear of Oliver Fisher on 18-under 270.

The 27-year-old Englishman was solid on the final day, opening with eight straight pars from the get-go before ticking the par-5s ninth and tenth holes to open up a three-shot lead over the field. His playing partner Oliver Fisher had thrown up three bogeys on the front nine, but now burst into life, chasing Pepperell hard. A bogey by the eventual winner at 15 threatened his bid, but a pitch to 4'0" at the 16th gave him a birdie. Fisher got within one at 17, but Pepperell stood firm on 18. His drive was a little too safe, his lay up found rough, his pitch was strong and he two-putted for a par which Fisher couldn't better. He will remember the 12th hole. He chipped in for bogey in R3 and on Sunday his approach landed in trouble, but bounced out, allowing him to save par. "I felt good all day mentally," he said afterwards. "Oli made it difficult. I felt I would win out here, it's never come, but I did feel it could."
