Victor Dubuisson Earns Big Payday in the Turkish Airlines Open

Victor Dubuisson resisted the pull of Jamie Donaldson, Justin Rose and Tiger Woods to clinch his maiden European Tour title at the Turkish Airlines Open and pocket a whopping cheque for £411,000.

The 32-year-old Frenchman carded a final-round 69 to finish the tournament two clear on 24 under and was clearly emotional after the event came to a close.

Dubuisson said: "I wanted to cry on the 18th green. I still don't realise that I've won such a big event.”

He then added: The start was a bit difficult because I did not hit the ball well and struggled on the greens. I didn't hole any birdie putts on the front nine and all the good players were coming back at me. But I spoke to my caddie at the turn and told him everything is OK and I would make one or two birdies on the back nine."

Wales' Donaldson hit a hole-in-one at 16 in his 63 to end second, while remaining two ahead of world number one Woods (67) and US Open champion Justin Rose (65).

Ian Poulter (69) tied for fifth with France's Raphael Jacquelin at 19 under. Sweden's Henrik Stenson (69) finished one stroke further behind to maintain his lead the Race to Dubai rankings.
