Jimenez wins the Dubai Desert Classic 2010
So it came down to a nailbiting finish. The wind really took it's toll on all the golfers today and it was all really tight when the last 3 groups came in. Jimenez finished in front on 11 under and then it was only down to Lee Westwood to take the title from him. Westwood went for the green with his 2nd shot on the par 5 and made it to the fringe. At the start of the 18th he was 10 under and so with a long eagle putt to go for he could take the title. (Video of the shot here) He missed by only a few inches, grabbing a birdie to take it to a play-off. 3 holes later it was touch and go until Jimenez took it on the 3rd time up the 18th.
