Final results of the 2001 Dubai Desert Classic
COCERES CAPTUREs SECOND TOUR TITLE
Jose Coceres bridged a six-year gap when he added the Dubai Desert Classic title to the Heineken Open Catalonia which he won in 1994 when he secured a two stroke victory over Paul McGinley and Patrik Sjoland at Dubai Creek Golf and Yacht Club. The 36 year old from Buenos Aires, who was born into poverty but has emerged as one of Argentina’s strongest golfing exports, allowed himself the luxury of a double bogey six at the final hole and still had two strokes to spare over the field.
COCERES EXTENDS LEAD TO FIVE SHOTS IN DUBAI
Jose Coceres, who grew up in poverty in Argentina and often slept five to a bed with his brothers and sisters, will now take a five stroke lead into the final round of the Dubai Desert Classic at Dubai Creek Golf and Yacht Club. The 36 year old from Buenos Aires shot a third round 68 for a total of 201, 15 under par, to lead by five shots from England’s Jamie Spence (69) and by six from another pair of English golfers in Lee Westwood and Russell Claydon.
