Amazing come-from-behind victory or awful front-running meltdown

Whatever it was, the simple fact is that Gary Stal is the winner of the Abu Dhabi Golf Championships, having made up a stunning 10 shot final round deficit on Martin Kaymer today. 

With the two-time major winner so far ahead of the field after an early birdie rush, Betfair punters were prepared to take the minimum Exchange price of 1.011/100 on the German completing the job.

And there were huge prices matched on the Frenchman, too, with £16 traded at 1000.0 on Stal winning the tournament. He did so without nerves putting together a -7 round while Kaymer while suddenly went very cold, throwing in a double bogey at the ninth and a triple on the 13th. 

Stal, a two-time Challenge Tour winner, was identified by Paul Krishnamurty as one to follow this season in this article.
