On behalf of the DP World Tour, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2022 Commercial Bank Qatar Masters at Doha Golf Club.
This year, we celebrate the 25th anniversary of this historic event and we must thank the Qatar Olympic Committee and the Qatari Golf Association for their continued commitment and Commercial Bank for their valued support of the event as title partner over the last 16 years.
Last year we saw great drama at Education City as Antoine Rozner won his second DP World Tour title in style. This tournament has provided a number of memorable moments over the years, and Rozner’s 60-foot birdie putt on the final hole to win the coveted Mother of Pearl trophy was yet another unforgettable highlight in this event’s history.
The Frenchman joined a list of illustrious past champions of this tournament, which includes Europe’s victorious 2018 Ryder Cup Captain Thomas Bjørn and Major Champions Ernie Els, Sergio Garcia, Retief Goosen, Paul Lawrie, Adam Scott and Henrik Stenson.
We look forward to seeing more memories made this week as we return to Doha Golf Club, which first hosted us 1998 and now does so for the 23rd time.
I hope you all enjoy the tournament.
