Head over to the main site for all the reports, videos, highlights, interviews and more as we round-up a stunning win for Stephen Gallacher and all we can say is thanks for joining us on Tournament Tracker here in the Middle East. Once again, as it always does, the Desert Swing has delivered: great tournaments, great fields and above all – great winners. See you next time.
17:14
There cannot be much finer ways to do it, though, in a week you card your lowest ever round on The European Tour (his 62 on Saturday), breaking and equalling records left, right and centre. The victory will get him into all sorts of tournaments like the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, the WGC-HSBC Champions and more. He’ll rise into the top 60 of the Official World Golf Ranking, too, getting him into to the WGC-Accenture Match Play and giving himself a realistic chance of making the first Major of the year at the Masters Tournament. Nicely done.
17:12
The European Tour says: RT @scottjamieson54: Well done Stevie G! Class! #jocksontour
17:10
So that just about does it. What a win for Scotland’s Stephen Gallacher, having played 201 European Tour events since his first back in 2004. He becomes the second Scot to win the Dubai Desert Classic after Colin Montgomerie in 1996 and means that a Briton has triumphed in all three of this year’s Desert Swing. Rule Britannia?
17:06
The European Tour says: RT @jamiegoughgolf: Wow 2 weeks in a row heartbreaking eagles against our boys @gcoetzeegolf in Qatar and @sterndog29 here in Dubai😳 great efforts though
17:02
Gary Player says: Congratulations Stephen Gallacher on your excellent victory in Dubai on @European_Tour & great boost for Scottish golf.
17:00
The European Tour says: RT @markfozgolf: a classic cliche but a great win for one of the good guys on tour. stevie g is a top man!
16:59
The European Tour says: RT @garyplayer: So happy to see you playing well again @sterndog29 and congrats on your finish in Dubai. Keep working hard. Best
16:54
Five eagles in a week, holing out four times, it really has been a remarkable week for Stephen Gallacher and how he will enjoy getting his hands on that famous trophy, held in the past by such names as Seve Ballesteros, Ernie Els, Fred Couples, Tiger Woods, José María Olazábal, Mark O’Meara and Rory McIlroy. Fabulous win.
16:47
The European Tour says: With that total, Gallacher equals the lowest 72-hole score in #DubaiDesertClassic history, matching Thomas Bjorn in 2001
16:45
There it is! A par five is good enough for Gallacher at the last and 8 years, 116 days after his one and only previous European Tour title at the Dunhill Links in 2004, the Scot wins the 2013 Omega Dubai Desert Classic by three shots as Sterne also makes an unlikely par. Huge congratulations to Stephen.
16:42
The European Tour says: Stephen Gallacher wins the 2013 Omega #DubaiDesertClassic on -22! Huge congratulations to the Scot and worth the 8-year wait...
16:37
In the penultimate group, a one under par 71 for Thorbjorn Olesen and a three under par 69 for Felipe Aguilar means the Dane and Chilean will finish 17 under par in a tie for third place – as it stands. Meanwhile, a lay-up for Gallacher and a 145-yard short iron onto the green in a calm and orderly fashion follows to around 20-25 feet. Sterne, going in two, cannoned of the hospitality at the back of the green and almost, almost into the water in front of the green. It stops just short, though, and he chips to the back of the green with his third.
16:26
Two good approaches at the 17th from leader Gallacher and Sterne, but it is the South African that takes advantage, holing his birdie putt from around 12 feet to get back to 19 under par. Just a par for Gallacher, as two putts mean he will take a three-shot lead down the last and minutes away from ending an eight year title drought.
16:18
The European Tour says: That incredible eagle two at the 16th was a 115-yard sand wedge for Stephen Gallacher. #gamechanger #DubaiDesertClassic
16:17
Now that is just unreal! Wonderful, wonderful shot from Stephen Gallacher and I’m going to call it now as the Shot of the Month. From the left rough at 16, he strikes a pin-point, perfect short iron that pitches five feet short of the hole and rolls, and rolls, and into the cup for the most brilliant eagle two. What play, what a shot. That takes the Scotsman to 22 under par, which I might add is now four shots clear as Sterne (who you wouldn’t blame if he was a little rocked by that sensational bit of play) misses his par putt to drop back to 18 under par. Game changer.
16:12
A bogey it is for Westwood to finish, such a shame. The World Number Eight closes with a four under par 68 that could have been so much better, but still good enough for a tie for fourth as it stands on 16 under.
16:05
Changes again at the top after the par three 15th! Dramatic stuff, as Sterne three-putts from the front edge of the green to make bogey and slip back to 19 under. Gallacher shows steel to make his par, too, playing a lovely chip down the slope from off the back of the green and a tap-in for his three. Back in the narrowest of leads now.
15:59
“A yard from perfection,” says Sam Torrance in commentary, and it was. Lee Westwood, needing an eagle to be in with a chance, strikes his three wood pretty much perfectly from the fairway, it pitches on the very front of the green then rolls back into the water. Almost perfect. Guts and glory from Westwood but no cigar and his chances are surely sunk along with the ball.
15:57
Two par fours for the leading pair at the 14th to remain at 20 under par. What does this next hour or so have in store for us?
15:50
Plenty of ifs and buts for Westwood, but he has played some fabulous golf today. Another sublime approach to four feet at 17 this time does lead to a birdie and he moves back to 17 under par. Finds the fairway at the 18th, too, and will need an eagle to have any sort of chance.
15:45
Daryl Evans says: Sharp shooting today @Marcusfraser ! @European_Tour #DubaiDesertClassic
15:44
And 16 under is the mark that Marcus Fraser finishes at, as the Australian birdies the long 18th to sign for a five under par 67 – all his gains having come over the back nine. Well played, squire.
15:42
It’s still a four shot lead, but shouldn’t be. Lee Westwood played a majestic approach into the 16th that almost pitches straight in the hole and comes up about two feet from the hole. The putt barely graces the lip, though, and he remains at 16 under.
15:39
Nothing wayward about the drives for Gallacher and Sterne at the long 13th as they both nut it to around 330 yards down the par five’s fairway. But while the South African finds the green in two, Gallacher yanks his approach left into the cabbage and slightly duffs his chip on. The birdie putt is on line but short and he takes his par, while Sterne two-putts for his birdie from 12 feet to get back into a share of the lead a 20 under par.
15:34
The European Tour says: What they're all out there fighting for #DubaiDesertClassic http://t.co/S4lhDyrr
15:26
That could be that, in terms of Westwood’s chances. The Englishman flies the 15th green, hits another poor chip to around ten feet and fails to convert the par putt to slip back to 16 under with three holes to play. Never say never, though.
15:21
More wayward driving goes unpunished for Gallacher at the par four 12th as he finds the sandy waste to the left of the fairway. A solid approach follows, though, and he makes a two-putt par from around 40 feet. Sterne falls out of the lead after a second consecutive bogey, however, coming up short with his approach then again failing to get up and down, his par putt from eight feet sliding by on the right side. Gallacher leads on -20, back in front for the first time since the first hole this morning.
15:13
More changes at the top people, you can’t take your eyes off this for a second! Regulation par for Gallacher at the 11th but Sterne makes bogey after failing to get up and down from off the green at the par three. Tied for the lead again at 20 under par. And that is now only three clear as Lee Westwood drains a big one for birdie at the 14th – his fourth birdie in five holes – to get to five under today and 17 for the tournament. Could he?
15:10
Five under par 67 for Ricardo Santos, who finished fifth in Abu Dhabi, tied 22nd in Qatar, and is tied for fifth at 15 under par currently here in Dubai. Desert form for the Portuguese.
15:03
MB_GolfSA says: The Emirates Golf Club was called 'The Desert Miracle' when it emerged as the Gulf's first all grass course in 1988. #WhereToGolf
14:59
That is still five under behind now, though, as Richard Sterne gets into a one shot lead thanks to a birdie at the par five tenth. Gallacher does incredibly well for his par, after going from rough to rough all the way down the 549-yard hole, eventually holing a 20 foot par putt to stay within one of the South African.
14:58
Felipe Aguilar drains a monster for eagle at the tenth and then follows it up with a birdie at the short 11th to move to 16 under par, now alongside Lee Westwood, who get back the same mark as he follows a bogey at 12 with a four at the long 13th.
14:54
The European Tour says: Sterne, meanwhile, is 12 under for the back nine this week with no eagles. #DubaiDesertClassic
14:52
The European Tour says: Stephen Gallacher is 11 under par on the back 9 this wk having eagled the 13th twice (rds 1&3) and the 18th once (rd 3) #DubaiDesertClassic
14:43
Westwood’s run, however, comes to a juddering halt, as a poor chip from off the green at the 12th costs him a bogey to slip back to 15 under par.
14:41
As Sterne gets up and down well from off the green at nine for his par, Gallacher bounces back in style to regain a share of the lead after he finishes off the work his stunning approach by knocking in the remaining three feet for birdie. Front nine 36 for the Scotsman and two under 33 for the South African.
14:39
Seemingly from nowhere, Australia’s Marcus Fraser gets himself into a tie for fourth at 15 under par. After a level par front nine 35, Fraser has gone birdie-birdie-par-eagle, the latter after draining a lovely 20-footer for a big bird.
14:36
Miraculous shot from Stephen Gallacher, especially considering the trouble he’s been in so far today. He puts his tee shot at nine 20 yards right into the rough with a tree and an upslope in the way. He fires out a sublime rescue club that pitches on the par four’s fairway and rolls into around three feet of the hole. Superb. Sterne, meanwhile, from the fairway can only find the rough to the right of the 463-yard hole’s green.
14:30
Sterne leads alone after Gallacher makes a third bogey of the day at eight, missing his eight foot par putt on the left. Par golf good enough for the South African at the moment. Tommy Fleetwood, meanwhile, up ahead at the ninth cards a costly double bogey to slip back to 15 under par.
14:24
And wouldn’t you know, he has started as if he means to do just that. Westwood rolls in another at the short 11th to get within four of the lead. Started the day nine shots behind Gallacher…
14:17
Birdie at the long tenth gets Lee Westwood to three under par today and 15 under in total, tied for fourth and five behind currently. Needs a red-hot back nine to be in with a chance.
14:15
Gallacher keeping a level head and happy with pars right now. The Scotsman pulls his tee shot at the par three seventh but hits a lovely putt down the slope to around three feet and then dispatches the par putt. Par, too, for Sterne and they both stick at 20 under par, still three clear. Gallacher mused beforehand whether two under par today would be enough. Looking at the way things are going, it probably would.
14:01
England’s Tommy Fleetwood, meanwhile, is alone in third place now after converting an eight foot birdie chance at the short seventh following an excellent tee shot. A tied fifth place at the 2011 Dunhill Links his best European Tour finish so far in Fleetwood’s burgeoning career.
13:57
The European Tour says: RT @ROGERCHAPMAN1: @BazLane remember Paul Way and his partner playing Lancôme in 1hr 9 mins!
13:57
The European Tour says: RT @BazLane: Not bad Thomas,you were only one, Peter baker and I played same time in Lancôme !
13:57
Just good grinding from Stephen Gallacher, that. The Scotsman found the thick stuff on the right side of the sixth fairway from the tee, played a good approach – considering the lie – onto the front left of the green and two-putted for his par to remain at 20 under alongside playing partner Sterne, whose birdie putt fails to drop.
13:48
Marc Warren with the best score of the day so far, a five under par 67 completed a little earlier. Who can match or better that today and how high will it take them? Having put together a real charge over his opening half-dozen holes, Steve Webster has a shocker at the short seventh. Having found the rough in front of the green on the right, the Englishman chips through the green and into the water, resulting in a costly double bogey. Back to 14 under par now, six back, and a real blow for his chances.
13:40
The European Tour says: Richard Sterne, back in a tie for the lead now, looking for his sixth ET victory in his 203rd ET event #DubaiDesertClassic
13:36
Gallacher wasn’t settled for long, though, racing his birdie attempt at least eight feet by the hole at the short fourth. Serious grinding, though, from the Scot as he calmly rolls it in to remain at 20 under par alongside Sterne. Three shots behind, meanwhile, is the charging Englishman Steve Webster, who gets to four under today through six holes.
13:22
The lead back to four as Gallacher makes a settler of a birdie at the third, as does Sterne and the leaders move back to 20 under par.
13:17
A birdie for Olesen at the par five third gets him to 16 under, now one of four men within three of the lead with Fleetwood, Singh and now Steve Webster, who makes a third birdie of the day at the par four fifth.
13:15
thomas Levet says: @European_Tour 2h09mn cos i had to play 2 provisionals.....just walked quick but line up every shot....
13:15
The European Tour says: RT @EllingYelling: Takes two holes for Gallacher to give away a 3-shot lead. Once again, should come down the par-5 18th at Emirates. Classic closiong hole.
13:10
Tommy Fleetwood and Jeev Milkha Singh, playing together in the third to last group, have made identical starts, second birdies of the day at the long third getting them to 16 under and now within three of that lead. Could be in for an absolute corker of an afternoon here…
13:06
Can you believe it? We have a share of the lead already. Gallacher pushes his drive at the second right, can only find the edge of the bunker with his second and then fails to get up and down as his six foot par putt slips by. Sterne, on the other hand, mashes his drive to around 30 yards in front of the green, chips on delightfully to two feet and does the necessary for his birdie. Tied for the lead at 19 under. Remarkable.
13:00
The European Tour says: Follow all the action from the final rd of the #DubaiDesertClassic with Tournament Tracker: http://t.co/GoMgmTM4
12:58
More men into the tie for third at 15 under as England’s Tommy Fleetwood makes a gain at the second, while Webster makes it two in a row at the long third after his eagle putt comes up short.
12:54
Oh dear, oh dear. Not the start Stephen Gallacher had probably envisaged. Having found the front of the green with his approach, the Scot three-putts from around 25 feet. A nervy start and the gap is back to two already as Sterne’s birdie attempt lips out. Almost a two-shot swing on the first hole…
12:44
As our leader Stephen Gallacher gets away safely with his drive at the first – drilled down the right side of the par four’s fairway – England’s Steve Webster climbs into a share of fourth at -14 with a birdie at the second. Another drops for Lee Westwood, too, as he makes it a second birdie in three holes this afternoon. Jeev Milkha Singh amongst the red numbers early doors too, a gain at the second getting him alongside Thorbjorn Olesen, who bogeys the first, in third at 15 under.
12:40
Early birdie for Westwood at the second sees the World Number Eight move into…eighth… on 13 under par. What magic can he produce today? Let’s hear the latest radio update from Mr Nick Dye: {184953}
12:26
Less than half an hour until our leaders now and the excitement is really ramping up a notch here at Emirates Golf Club. Scotland’s Marc Warren showing that there is still a good score out there despite the increasingly influential wind, now five under par through 16 holes today and up into a share of 13th on 11 under for the tournament. Elsewhere, Andy Sullivan continued his good start with a second consecutive birdie at the long third to move up into a share of seventh place as it stands on 13 under. Only eight shots behind Gallacher now. Hmm.

More entrants into the top ten – albeit nine shots off our leader Gallacher’s total – as Ricardo Santos, rookie of the year in 2012, makes a pair of little birds at the third and fourth, while Walker Cup star Andy Sullivan finds a three at the par four second to also move to 12 under par and the tie for ninth currently.
11:51
Two early birdies for the slightly injured Sergio Garcia at the second and third gets the Spaniard into a share of ninth, along with Denmark’s Andreas Harto, who birdies the second to move to 12 under par too.

Ireland’s Peter Lawrie an early entrant into the top ten as the morning progresses here in sunny Dubai, two birdies at the second and third holes getting him to 11 under for tournament and in the current tie for tenth place. One shot back, Race to Dubai leader Scott Jamieson grabs a birdie at the third, as does playing partner, Italy’s Matteo Manassero.
11:17
A few little factoids about our three-shot leader Stephen Gallacher: this is his 404th European Tour event; the last three years he has finished 35th ( 2012 ), 61st ( 2011 ) and 26th ( 2010 ) in The Race to Dubai, with his best finish in the Order of Merit coming in 2004 when he finished 15th, largely thanks to his win at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship; has had three runner-ups since that win and a total of 46 top ten finishes in his career. Hoping today there will be highly notable new entry in his copybook…
10:26
Still a couple of hours until our leading groups get going, but the morning starters already proving the birdies and eagles are still out there on the Majlis course. Frenchman Gregory Havret birdied the second then eagled the third this morning to briefly move into the top 20 on ten under par before a bogey at the fifth set him back to two under par today. Wind still to increase, though.

The European Tour says: RT @JeevMilkhaSingh: Looks like it is going to be a more Dubai-like day with the sun out. Although, I do hope the promised 30mph wind blows.

As the day starts to really warm up and the leaders might be taking in a little light breakfast, why not watch this recap of what was a tremendous day’s golf yesterday: [184899]
09:28
The European Tour says: @thomaslevetgolf, playing on his own in 1st group out this morning, has flown around in 2hrs09mins for a 73. #fastplay #DubaiDesertClassic ------ And only two bogeys in his last three holes stopped it from being a 71, too.
09:09
As mentioned, it’s a wonderful morning in Dubai as the sun returns following a surprising rainy spell over the last day or so in the gulf. Winds are expected to pick up later, though, gusting somewhere in the region of 30 miles per hour so you can expect slightly more challenging scoring conditions today. Check out ET weather-guru Mike McClellan’s forecast here: http://bit.ly/X9jhdq

The European Tour says: RT @ManasseroMatteo: After three rounds -24 is leading in Phoenix and -21 is leading in Dubai ... The level is pretty high !!!!

Eight years and 116 days to be more precise, and a total of 201 European Tour events. A bit of a dry spell, then. Gallacher has been close on a few occasions, too, finishing second three times – at the 2006 British Masters, 2012 Malaysian Open and, of course, here last year, when the Scot missed out to Spain’s Rafa Cabrera-Bello.
08:04
The European Tour says: Thrilled to inform you that the cherished golden orb is back out in force for Super Sunday… http://t.co/MKEeG4f1

Either that, or sounds like the start of an archaic joke, one or the other. Anyway, it was Gallacher’s heroics on Saturday that have propelled him to such an elevated position as a ten under par 62 took the Scotsman to a record-breaking 21 under for the tournament, surpassing the previous low 54 holes in the event set by Tiger Woods in 2001. Gallacher has won once before on The European Tour, but not for eight years. Is this the day that drought comes to an end?
08:00
In Abu Dhabi, Welshman Jamie Donaldson trailed by two heading into the final round and ended up winning by one. In Qatar, England’s Chris Wood led by three and consequently triumphed by just a single stroke, with that sensational eagle at the last. Here in the City of Gold, Scotland’s Stephen Gallacher is looking to make it a British treble and takes a three shot lead into the final day of the 2013 Omega Dubai Desert Classic – the final instalment in The European Tour’s annual Desert Swing. A Welshman, an Englishman and a Scotsman… has a certain ring doesn’t it?
