Wang Wins in Qatar; Dreams About Masters Invite

Jeunghun Wang won his third European Tour title at the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters, by beating Joakim Lagergren and Jaco Van Zyl in a playoff.

 
Wang started the day with a 3-shot lead, but got into trouble early on the back-nine. The South Korean had a chance to win it in regulation on the final hole, but left his birdie putt about 2 inches short, and had to settle for 16-under and a playoff.

On the very first playoff hole (the par-5 18th), Wang birdied while Lagergren and Van Zyl parred.

At 21 years and 144 days old, Wang becomes the third youngest player to win three European Tour events (Matteo Manassero (19.6) and Seve Ballesteros (20.2) are 1 and 2, respectively).

The Quote

“When I was young, I really wanted to play the Masters. I always imagined that I would play there. Maybe now I have a chance to play the Masters. So I’m so happy about it and I hope I’m going to get in the Masters. That’s my dream, dream tournament. This feels really fantastic for me. It’s really, really great. I’m so happy.”
