Joint leaders Jordan and Meronk duel for maiden Qatar Masters title

DOHA: England’s Matthew Jordan and Poland’s Adrian Meronk share the lead on Sunday morning at the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters at the Doha Golf Club course.

If the Polish triumphs here, he would become his country’s first golfer in the history of the DP World Tour to win a title.

While Jordan can lift his first DP World Tour victory in his 61st appearance, if he keeps the balance and momentum.

Chris Wood (2013) and Eddie Pepperell (2018) were the two Englishmen who had won the Qatar Masters in the past.

Finland’s Kalle Samooja was a stroke behind after shooting 6-under 66 on Saturday.

Jordan (70) and Meronk (72) had 54-hole totals of 8-under 208 as both search for their first European tour win.

The 282nd-ranked Jordan had a front-nine 39 but recovered with five birdies on the back nine in an overall “stressful” round.

Pablo Larrazábal (75), leader on the first two days, slipped two shots back in a three-way tie for fourth on Saturday with fellow Spaniard Adrian Otaegui (70) and South Africa’s Wilco Nienaber (74).
