 NOTES:
      Tied for the lead after  two  rounds  with  Mathias  Gronberg  of
 Sweden,  Rolf  Muntz fashioned a five-under 67, the day's lowest score
 by two shots, to take a six-shot advantage into Sunday's final  round.
 Muntz  finished  his  maiden victory with an even-par 72 to defeat Ian
 Woosnam by five shots, as the Welshmen closed with a Sunday  best  68.
 Gronberg closed with rounds of 75-79 to tie for 27th. Muntz became the
 first golfer from Holland to win on the European Tour and is the first
 Dutchman  to  win an official tournament since 1947 when Joop Ruhl won
 the Dutch Open.  This course is owned by the State of Qatar and is one
 of  the  most  luxurious  golf clubs in the Middle East. Next week the
 European Tour moves off the coast of Portugal for the  Madeira  Island
 Open where Niclas Fasth will defend his title.
