McElroy second after Kaymer throws away ten shot lead

Rory McIlroy

World number 357 Gary Stal claimed his first European Tour title following an astonishing collapse by Martin Kaymer at the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship.

Kaymer, the US Open champion, began six shots ahead and that soon extended to 10.

But after 47 holes without a dropped shot - a bogey then double and triple bogeys saw his lead gone by the 13th.

Germany's Kaymer shot 75 and was third as 22-year-old Frenchman Stal carded a 65 to reach 19 under and win by one, with Rory McIlroy second after a 66 to finish on -18.
