DUBAI (Reuters) - Spain’s Alvaro Quiros produced a bizarre final round to capture the Dubai Desert Classic on Sunday.

The 27-year-old Quiros had a hole-in-one, chipped in for an eagle and also lost a ball up a palm tree in a final-round 68 to win by a stroke at 11 under par.

Denmark’s Soren Hansen, needing to birdie the last hole to deny Quiros, posted a 70 to end with a 10-under-par tally.

Struggling Tiger Woods ended his desert campaign with a final-hole double bogey in a closing 75 for a four-under-par score.

Briton Lee Westwood dropped three shots in his closing two holes and posted a 72 but remains world number one after nearest ranking rival Martin Kaymer of Germany ended in a share of 31st place.
