Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship

When everyone else was slipping, Belgium’s Thomas Pieters stood firm.

An Pieters of Belgium wins even-par round of 72 may not reveal how well he played on a golf course that was becoming increasingly hostile by the minute, but it was enough to win him the $8 million Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship.

Pieters’ win was his sixth on the DP World Tour and his second in his last three starts. He will turn thirty years old on Thursday, and he will have plenty to celebrate. He will move up to world No. 31 inside the all-important top-50 that grants players automatic entry into significant championships and will receive a whopping $1.36 million check (AED 5 million).

Pieters finished with a solitary birdie (on the par-3 8th) and a solitary bogey (on the par-5 11th) for a 72, bringing his four-day total to 10-under par 278.

Shubhankar Sharma (71) of India and Rafael Cabrera-Bello (70) of Spain were tied for second, one shot behind Pieters. Sharma’s finish was his best in a Rolex Series event, surpassing his tied seventh in Italy and Turkey in 2019. Both Sharma and Cabrera-Bello birdied the final hole to finish one stroke ahead of Frenchman Victor Dubuisson (69) and Norway’s Viktor Hovland, the world number seven, tied for fourth at 8-under par 280.

Josh Hill, a 17-year-old amateur from Dubai who cut spectacularly, battled hard but shot a three-over-par 75 with three bogeys in the final four holes. He tied for 58th place with a three-over-par 291.

Pieters began the day at 10-under par, one stroke behind overnight leader Scott Jamieson and tied with Shane Lowry of Ireland.

Lowry, who won the title in 2019 and then went on to win the Open Championship at Royal Portrush, faded after a triple-bogey seven on the first hole. Jamieson did not last long either; four birdies in his first five holes meant Pieters had new rivals.

“Some of the world’s best players were here this week, which gives me a lot of confidence that I’ll finish high on the leaderboard and compete with them.” So there’s a lot to look forward to right now.”

Jamieson finished in a tie for the tenth place after shooting a 77.

The highest-ranked player in the field, world number two Collin Morikawa (75), finished tied 62nd, while McIlroy (69) finished tied 12th. The DP World Tour then heads to Dubai for the $8 million Slync Dubai Desert Classic, the second Rolex Series event in a row.

Ramos, who joined the club from Real Madrid in the summer, scored his first goal. The central defender was the first to react to a loose ball from a PSG corner. After Predrag Rajkovic parried his first shot, the Spaniard responded quickly to slam the rebound.

That goal not only tied Ramos with Messi for the most league goals this season, but it also signaled Messi’s arrival. Messi decor up Verratti for a shot that deflected off two defenders and into the top corner in the 67th minute. PSG matched their biggest league win with a fourth goal from Danilo Pereira. Earlier, Khephren Thuram’s goal set up a crucial 2-0 away win for Nice, who defeated strugglers Metz to reclaim second place.
