Commercial Bank Qatar Masters 2017: Course and current form guide

Rafael Cabrera-Bello: Three times a top-three performer at Doha
Rafael Cabrera-Bello: Three times a top-three performer at Doha

Andy Swales brings you this week's statistical guide for the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters at Doha, highlighting both course and current form for those teeing-up in the Middle East.

"Cabrera-Bello has enjoyed a trio of top-three finishes here during the past six years"

Week two of the Middle East trilogy takes place at Doha, and the 20th staging of the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters.

Although this week's event can't quite offer the same sort of star quality that was present in Abu Dhabi, it has still attracted a pretty good field.

Opened 21 years ago, the course is fairly exposed to the elements, which means a strong wind is often a major factor while water is prevalent on many of the closing holes.

Among those with decent records around Doha in recent years, and teeing-up on Thursday, are consistent Spaniard Rafael Cabrera-Bello and Denmark's Thorbjorn Olesen - both of whom tied for second 12 months ago.

Cabrera-Bello has enjoyed a trio of top-three finishes here during the past six years, while Olesen also made the podium in 2014.

Another likely challenger is Bernd Wiesberger who contended for most of the 72 holes last week in Abu Dhabi, and was 3rd in Qatar two years ago.

In-form South African Dean Burmester, who has registered a brace of top-10s already this year, makes his Doha debut while his compatriot George Coetzee will be chasing a fifth-straight top-12 finish in the tournament.
