KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Paul Dunne has work to do if he's to claim a maiden European title as Jeung-Hun Wang pulled away from the pack with a scorching third-round 65 at the Qatar Masters.

Jeunghun Wang birdied the first extra hole to win a three-man playoff at the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters, inching closer to a Masters invite in the process.

Wang now heads to Dubai where he plays in this week's Desert Classic.

The 21-year-old was one of a European Tour record nine golfers vying for the lead on eight under at the midway stage.

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.

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.

"I don't want to think about win". The South African looked the favourite when he got on the green in two on the play-off hole but a second three-putt of the day cost him dear as he finished runner-up on the European Tour for the fifth time in his 150th event. "That's my dream, dream tournament", he said.

"My iron play was really good today and my putting was really good", he said. "I missed a lot of greens, but my chipping was really good today so I saved everything and finally won".

Lorenzo-Vera and South Africa's Thomas Aiken, who bogeyed the 17th, had to settle for a share of fourth place on 15 under, with England's Jordan Smith carding a closing 66 to finish a shot further back alongside Spanish duo Rafa Cabrera Bello and Nacho Elvira. "I'm excited to play tomorrow", he said. I didn't think about anything. Just unfortunately I hit a couple of good putts that just didn't go in. Both were looking for their first European Tour win. Maybe now I have a chance to play the Masters. "But overall, I'm pretty happy", Elviro said.
