Goosen denies O'Hern with eagle on 18th
1. Goosen (-15)
"It feels good to be the champion after such a long while," said Goosen, who has won 32 tournaments. "This win sets me up nicely for the rest of the season."
Goosen had been tied with O'Hern (70) and Richard Green (72) entering the final day.
"The birdie on 17 set me up nicely for the 18th," Goosen said. "I told my caddie that an eagle can do it for me. And I did it."
Ernie Els, the 2005 Qatar Masters winner, shot a 67 and finished two strokes behind Goosen. He was hurt by bogeys on the second and sixth holes.
O'Hern was leading by two shots before Goosen's birdie-eagle finish.
"I didn't hit the ball well today," O'Hern said. "But I kept hitting because that's what you've got to do when you are not playing well."
