Lahiri started off his campaign in the tournament with a first round card of 73. He then went on to card 67 and 72 in the next two rounds making his last round a crucial one. On the last day, Lahiri came up with birdies in the second, seventh, 10th, 14th, 15th and 18th holes along with five bogeys to take his final day score to a 71. This gave Lahiri a total of five-under 283.
The 34th place finish gives Lahiri a prize money of 62,350 Euros. While Lahiri finished 34th, World number 3, Mcllory registered a win with a total of 21-under 267. He had rounds of 68,68,65 and 66 that took him to the title.

“It means an awful lot, I had to play so well over the weekend. Dubai has been a pretty sweet place for me,” He said after the win.
