Michael Hoey carded six birdies in his round in Doha on Sunday

Michael Hoey finished in a share of 12th place after firing a closing 68 at the Qatar Masters on Sunday.

Hoey was five under for his opening 12 holes as he moved into the top 10 but then suffered a couple of bogeys before a closing birdie in Doha.

That left him on six under as he finished nine shots behind winner Scotland's Paul Lawrie, who was four ahead of Jason Day and Peter Hanson.

Graeme McDowell finished on one under after a closing 70.

McDowell was in a share of 59th place with Peter Lawrie (71) while Damien McGrane finished on two over after a 73 in the weather-affected tournament.

The event was reduced to 54 holes after only three hours' play took place on Friday because of high winds.

Winner Lawrie shot a superb closing 65 with Day also firing a seven-under-par round and Hanson carding a 67.

John Daly showed a welcome return to form as his 67 left him in fourth place.

Frenchman Jean-Baptiste Gonnet, Dane Soren Hansen, Argentine Ricardo Gonzalez shared fifth with Sergio Garcia.
