McIlroy fades in Dubai

Long-time leader Rory McIlroy followed his opening rounds of 65 and 68 with 75-74 to end the Dubai Desert Classic in a disappointing joint 10th.

The Northern Irishman's collapse over the weekend left him five shots behind winner Alvaro Quiros who finished on 11 under and only one clear of countryman Michael Hoey.

Damien McGrane ended the final tournament of the European Tour's Middle East swing on level par with Darren Clarke a further shot back and Peter Lawrie on five over.
