S. Korean golfer Wang Jeung-hun earns 3rd European Tour victory

SEOUL, Jan. 29 (Yonhap) -- South Korean golfer Wang Jeung-hun earned his third career European Tour victory in Qatar on Sunday.

Wang captured the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters at Doha Golf Club in Doha in a playoff. He ended the regulation tied at 16-under with Joakim Lagergren of Sweden and Jaco Van Zyl of South Africa, but birdied the first playoff hole, the par-five 18th, to clinch the title.

It was Wang's first win of the season. He won his first two European Tour victories in back-to-back weeks in May last year.

Wang entered the final round, holding a three-stroke lead, and the advantage evaporated on the back nine on Sunday at the par-72 layout.

Wang reclaimed the top spot with a birdie at the 16th, but a bogey on the next hole dropped back into a tie for the lead.

In the playoff, Wang stiffed his chip to within three feet of the hole, and drained the birdie putt to cap off a dramatic day.
