Commercial Bank Qatar Masters Round 1
The Qatar Masters is a European Tour golf tournament held at Education City Golf Course in Doha, Qatar. When founded in 1998, it was one of two European Tour events to be staged in the Arabian Peninsula, but is currently one of six. From 2005 to 2007 the tournament was co-sanctioned by the Asian Tour.
The tournament had modest fields in its early years, but with the aid of "promotional" money paid to top golfers to appear, and being scheduled within a three week period that included events in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, it developed to have one of the European Tour's strongest fields.
