Doha, January 21 (QNA)- After enjoying one of the most successful years in his European Tour career, Denmark's Thomas Bjorn is fired up to defend his title at the 2012 Commercialbank Qatar Masters presented by Dolphin Energy, being staged from February 2-5.
For the World Number 35 it will be a welcome return to the Doha Golf Club, a venue where his stellar 2011 season took off with a four shot victory over a world-class field. It was a victory that set up the Dane for a year that would see him win twice more and finish the season ranked ninth on Tour.
"Qatar was a turning point for me as it showed that I could get back into the winning frame of mind and close out tournaments," said Bjorn who has spent the winter months holidaying with his family and working on his game in Dubai.
"I was delighted with the week. I played solid golf - I think I made one bogey in the last 54 holes. On that golf course and in those conditions, that's good going."
