This is Dubai, and bling is back. If you want to get the attention of a millionaire golfer you have to go big. The Dubai Desert Classic has gone bigger than any tournament on earth with a record jackpot for a hole-in-one at the 17th, a cool $2.5 million (£1.5m). Even Rory McIlroy is interested.

As expected the challengers gave it a crack on championship Sunday but in the end a five-shot advantage was too big for Victor Dubuisson to blow. The Frenchman survived a thrilling push from Jamie Donaldson, whose 63 included a hole-in-one at the 16th, and a 65 from Justin Rose, to claim his maiden European Tour victory at the Turkish Airlines Open.

The Dutch rider, who now has three road world titles and two Olympic gold medals, is one of the world’s greatest sportswomen.
