In the thrilling final round of the Dubai Desert Classic on Sunday Authentic Quinten Rollins Jersey , China’s Li Haotong edged out Rory McIlroy by a single stroke to claim the second European Tour title of his career.

The duo then matched each other with birdies on the third and seventh, but McIlroy forged a two-stroke lead after the turn with a birdie on the par-five 10th as Li registered his second bogey of the afternoon.

The Northern Irishman was briefly pegged back after landing in the sand on the par-three 11th, but his two-shot advantage was restored when Li made his third and final bogey on the next hole.

The Chinese reacted with supreme composure in the clutch situation, going on to birdie four of his last six holes Authentic Kenny Clark Jersey , including sinking a 25-foot putt on the 15th to draw level with McIlroy.
