David Cannon/Getty Images(DUBAI, United Arab Emirates) — Stephen Gallacher won the Dubai Desert Classic on Sunday by three strokes over Richard Sterne.

The 38-year-old Gallacher came into the final round with a three shot lead over Sterne, but relinquished the top spot on the leader board after bogeying the opening two holes. The pair would trade the lead several times, until Gallacher nailed an eagle on the 16th hole which gave him a four stroke cushion.

It’s Gallacher’s second victory on the European Tour. His first came back in 2004 at St. Andrews in the Dunhill Links Championship.
