Spain's Jorge Campillo beat David Drysdale in a closely-fought play-off on Sunday to win the Qatar Masters and secure a second European Tour title.

Scotsman Drysdale has now contested 498 European Tour events without a win and has finished as runner up on four occasions.

Campillo had a two shot lead ahead of the final two holes, but hit a double bogey on the 17th meaning the victor was decided by extra holes for the second time in as many weeks.

"I'm just so proud right now of the way I played in the play-off," Campillo said.

"I hardly missed a shot and I was able to make some putts.

"I hit some good shots coming in in the middle of the round but you have to be patient, you have to try hard. I knew I was going to make some putts. It was a tough win but I'm glad I pulled it off."

"David was hitting some great shots into the hole and I had to make some putts. Three birdies out of six on 18 to win is something to be proud of."

"It's a great par four, 18. A tough hole," he said.
