Victor Perez has secured the biggest win of his career after claiming a dramatic Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship victory.

Perez has become the first French winner of a Rolex Series event after he posted a six-under 66 during a thrilling final round at Yas Links Abu Dhabi to claim a third DP World Tour victory

The world No 111 produced a remarkable bunker hole-out at the par-three 17th to take a two-shot lead into the final hole.

Meanwhile, Sebastian Soderberg ended tied-second alongside Min Woo Lee, who almost found the final-hole eagle required to force a play-off, while Padraig Harrington's bid to become the oldest winner in DP World Tour history ended with a fourth-place finish.
