Matthew Naylor won the Abu Dhabi PGA Open at Yas Links at the 2nd extra playoff hole, after shooting 71 to tie Steven Munro.

Playing together, Naylor held a 1 stroke advantage on the 17th, Munro made a bogie to Naylor's 2 putt par giving him a 2-shot cushion. On 18 Naylor pushed his drive into the heavy rough, and did well do make a bogie 6. Munro took full advantage of his power by hitting to with 40 yards of the green. He then pitched neatly to 6 feet, and held his nerve to hole for the birdie to tie.

Into sudden death, Matthew made par at the 2nd extra hole to take the title.

T3rd on 72 were Luke Plumb and Martyn Hamer.

our next event is Tuesday 19th at JGE on the Earth Course.
