'That's for mum,' says golfer Ferguson after maiden win in Qatar

Scotland's Ewen Ferguson clinched a maiden DP World Tour title at the Qatar Masters on Sunday, dedicating his one-shot victory to his mother who "was watching from home, crying".

The 25-year-old Glasgow golfer had started the final round three shots adrift of overnight co-leaders Adrian Meronk and Matthew Jordan.

However, as they slipped off the pace, Ferguson pounced, firing an eagle and a birdie in his last three holes to lift the trophy.

"That's for my mum. I know she'll be watching at home crying. Happy Mother's Day to all the mums, especially mine," said the new champion after a closing round score of 70 and a seven-under total for the tournament.

"I'm a winner now - it's incredible."

Ferguson's playing partner Chase Hanna of the United States finished alone in second place on six under after he rounded off his final round 71 with a birdie at the 18th.

Marcus Kinhult of Sweden and Poland's Meronk were third, two shots off the pace.
