Golf: Final round fling in store for Simon Dyson at Qatar Masters
11:09am Saturday 25th January 2014 in Sport
SIMON DYSON heads into the final round of the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters in Doha only four shots adrift of leaders Steve Webster and Rafa Cabrera-Bello.
The North Yorkshire golfer carded a one-under-par third round of 71 at Doha Golf Club and, added to opening rounds of 68 and 69, that left him in a tie for 15th place on eight under par.
Malton & Norton Golf Club star Dyson overcame a shaky start where he bogeyed the par-four second hole. Birdies at the par-four fourth hole and the short eighth hole took him to the turn in 35 strokes.
A second bogey at the par-four 15th was erased by a birdie three at the next hole.
Cabrera-Bello started the day with a two-shot lead and extended his advantage thanks to a birdie on the second, but he dropped two shots in the last six holes to card a disappointing 73.
In contrast, Webster started poorly and was two over par after five holes before playing the remaining 13 in four under to return a 70 and join Cabrera-Bello on 12 under par.
