Justin Rose reacts to missing Saudi International cut on European Tour

Saudi International- Day Three

Saudi International- Day Three

Fox was eight shots back from the Saudi International victor, world No 3 Dustin Johnson of the United States, whose final round of 67 ensured he beat China's Li Haotong and England's Tom Lewis to first place and the top cash prize of €508,260 (NZ$844,828). "I played good enough to be right up there around the lead".

Australian Scott Hend carded an impressive seven-under, featuring eight birdies, to sit four shots behind Johnson going into the final round.

But Johnson doubled his advantage with a clutch birdie at the penultimate hole, and he matched Li's four at the par-five last to post a winning score of 19 under par which secured his first victory in a regular European Tour event.

Overnight leader Thomas Pieters slipped to 18th after a poor round of 74 that included seven bogeys, while world number one Justin Rose missed the cut after a round of 72.

Li put a little late pressure on Johnson with an approach to two feet for birdie at the 15th and the American briefly wobbled as he found the water on the 16th before scrambling for bogey.

"I played really well", Koepka said.

Li responded with a second birdie and then, on the back nine, hit a further three eagles, with three of his four coming on par-four holes as he surged into contention.




Haotong Li, the 2018 Omega Dubai Desert Classic victor, leads the chasing pack behind Johnson on eight-under after a round of 65. I did a lot of the same things I did yesterday.

Li, who had his own disciplinary issues in Dubai last week when he received a two-shot penalty for having his caddie line up a putt, said he was "very, very lucky" to become the first player since Mark Pilkington (Singapore Masters, 2007) to make four eagles in one European Tour round.

In a brief statement on the European Tour's official website, Garcia admitted his wrongdoing and accepted the decision to remove him from the tournament.

"I could have made a run in the morning tomorrow if I had scored slightly better in the first round".

"I'm pleased with where the game's at and to get a win here, it's a big win, and gives me a lot of confidence going for the rest of the year".

However, current number one Rose made an early exit from the tournament.
