Scotland's David Drysdale was foiled in his attempt to win a first European Tour title in 498 attempts when he lost to Spain's Jorge Campillo at the fifth play-off hole of the Qatar Open.

Drysdale, 44, and Campillo finished on 13 under par after the 33-year-old double-bogeyed the 17th to give up his two-shot lead with two holes to play.

The pair made two birdies and then two pars on the first four play-off holes.

Drysdale then couldn't match Campillo's 20ft birdie putt on the fifth hole.

"You have to be patient and try hard, it was a tough win but I am glad I pulled it off," Campillo said.

Drysdale has now finished as runner-up on four occasions on the European Tour whereas Campillo's win in the Middle East comes under a year after he lifted the Hassan Trophy.

He added: "I played not so good in the first few holes but I knew I was still in the game and had to be patient."
