Yates ends year strongly

Black Mountain’s Simon Yates capped a great week in Dubai by finishing in third place after signing off with a four-under-par 68 at the Dubai Open over the weekend.

It was the Scotsman best finish on the Asian Tour as he ended his year in Dubai with a four-day total of 13-under-par 275, which also marked a timely return to form for Yates who has won twice on the Asian Tour.

Prom Meesawat carded a final round 72 to take a share of 24th place while Jazz Janewattananond was tied for 31st after posting a 69 at the last Asian Tour event for 2014.
