2020 witnessed another strong field head to Royal Greens Golf & Country Club for the 2020 Saudi International powered by SoftBank Investment Advisers with Brooks Koepka, Dustin Johnson, Patrick Reed, Shane Lowry and Sergio Garcia among the leading names on show.
After two rounds, Victor Perez led the event heading into the weekend before former Ryder Cup teammates Graham McDowell and Victor Dubuisson came through the field to lead the way going into Round 4. A windy day at Royal Greens would make it a difficult day of scoring but McDowell’s experience in the conditions ultimately pulled him through as he finished on 12 under par. Former World Number 1 and defending champion Dustin Johnson threatened with a score of 10 under but McDowell held him off to record his first victory on the European Tour since 2014.
