DUBAI, Jan 31 (Reuters) - Retief Goosen has won the European Tour's golfer of the month award for January after a spectacular birdie-eagle finish clinched victory at the Qatar Masters.
The South African took the honor ahead of Joburg Open winner Ariel Canete of Argentina, the tour said in a news release on Wednesday.
Goosen was two strokes off the lead before a birdie at the 17th was followed by a successful 30-foot eagle putt at the last on Sunday.
His victory extended his streak of consecutive winning seasons on the tour to nine.
