Grace reflects on title defence
Branden Grace became one of a select few to defend a European title at the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters on Saturday.
The South African claimed his tenth professional win by two strokes in Doha, though it was certainly one to remember.
"To get the first proper defence under the belt is something great, and something I've been dreaming of," the world number 11 told the European tour website.
"There's no better place to do it than Qatar. This was really one of my biggest wins to date last year, and I think this is just going to push it up even higher."
Grace added that the pressure of defending a title is often too much to handle, which makes his win all the more special.
"It's a big thing to come to a week defending…you've got a lot more pressure and a lot more things going on that week," added the 27-year-old.
"It's all a big learning curve as your career goes on. I've learned a lot this week, learned patience, and I've learned what it takes now to defend a title.
"And not just that; to win a title again. It happened last year, but it feels long gone. So it's great to be in the winner's circle again."
