The round was really good in parts, really shabby in parts. Not good enough to put any pressure on, but just about good enough to get second
England's Matt Wallace birdied the final hole of the Omega Dubai Desert Classic to claim second place behind winner, Bryson Dechambeau, at The Emirates Club.
Wallace fired rounds of 70 64 69 and 68 to finish on seventeen under par to give him sole possession of second spot from Dechambeau who claimed the title on twenty four under par.
"I wanted to give it a go today" said Matt "I really wanted to put some pressure on Bryson".
"The round was really good in parts, really shabby in parts. Not good enough to put any pressure on, but just about good enough to get second. I've got to take the positives from that early on in the season to get the juices flowing like that. I actually drove it amazing, apart from that last tee shot really. Friday waw the best I've ever played tee to green, and that's a really good sign".
George Coetzee and Ashun Wu both finished on nine under par and tied 38th followed by Matthias Shcwab on three under par tying for 64th and Nino Bertasio was 73rd.
