    2012 : MCB TOUR CHAMPIONSHIP - DAVID FROST

    In 2012, David Frost duly completed his expected victory in the MCB Tour Championship. However, the bare facts fail to reveal the drama and tension that added spice to the closing stages of the tournament. After holding a six-stroke lead at one time in the final round, Frost was left facing a two-putt from 25 feet for birdie at the last to secure the title.

    2011 : MCB TOUR CHAMPIONSHIP - TOM LEHMAN

    By December 2011, the MCB Open had been transformed into the prestigious end-of-season MCB Tour Championship, open to the leading players in the Senior Tour order-of-merit and winners of the Senior Majors. A clear favourite emerged when organisers announced that American Tom Lehman would be among the contenders. The 52-year-old was a past Open champion, a three times Ryder Cup player and multi-Champions Tour winner who finished top of the Tour's 2011 money list. Lehman promptly announced his intentions by carding birdies at three of his first four holes. Thereafter, he made relentless progress to lead throughout the three rounds. David Frost strove hard to mount a challenge but he was unable to reproduce the final-hole heroics of the previous year and finished a stroke behind Lehman, with the rest of the field some way in arrears.

    2010 : MCB OPEN MAURITIUS : DAVID FROST

    Drama returned to the 18th hole in 2010 when South African David Frost conjured up an inspired finish to snatch victory from Roger Chapman's grasp. Chapman started the final day four shots behind playing partner Frost but he steadily reeled in his rival with four birdies over the first nine and three more by the 17th. At the start of the final hole, Chapman held a two-stroke advantage and a par appeared enough to secure victory. Frost, meanwhile, needed something spectacular. Spectacular won the day. A fine drive was followed by an immaculate three-wood to 30 feet of the pin. Frost sunk the eagle putt. Chapman's par was not good enough. The pair exchanged birdies on the first play-off hole, the 18th, and returned to the tee in an attempt to settle the issue. This time, Frost found the fairway but Chapman pulled his tee shot into undergrowth. After taking two shots to emerge, Chapman closed with a bogey and, with two putts for victory, Frost was in no mood to grant a reprieve.

    2009 1ST MCB OPEN MAURITIUS : KEVIN SPURGEON

    A new chapter in the history of golf on Mauritius was written in 2009 when the European Senior Tour arrived on the paradise island. The Mauritius Commercial Bank Open proved particularly significant for England's Kevin Spurgeon, who shook off his maiden tag to record a one-stroke victory over fellow Englishman Gordon J Brand. Paraguay's Angel Franco and Scotland's Sam Torrance finished a further shot behind. On a crowded leaderboard, only three strokes covered the top eight players.

    2008 · MAURITIUS GOLF OPEN - JAMIE DONALDSON

    The 2008 championship produced another dramatic finish when France's Gregory Havret started the final hole level with Wales's Jamie Donaldson who was playing in the final group, a hole behind. Havret thinned his second shot at the 18th into the lake and it cost him a double-bogey. That took the pressure off Donaldson who had shots in hand at the end.

    2007 · MAURITIUS GOLF OPEN - PETER BAKER

    England's Peter Baker overcame a four-shot deficit in the final round to claim the 2007 title by a comfortable three strokes from Jose-Filipe Lima, from Portugal. The result was effectively decided on the 13th hole where Baker rolled in a 20-foot downhill putt for eagle, Jamie Donaldson made bogey and Lima a double-bogey. Suddenly presented with a three-stroke lead, the experienced Baker parred his way home for a four-under 68 and victory.

    2006 · MAURITIUS GOLF OPEN - VAN PHILLIPS

    In 2006, Van Phillips staged the most sensational comeback in Mauritius Open history when he made up eight shots over the closing 12 holes to secure victory. Joint leader overnight, Phillips dropped four strokes through the opening six holes while Ryder Cup man Phil Price picked up four birdies to take a convincing lead. But then Phillips embarked on an astonishing run. He made birdies at 10, 11 and 12 and, after two pars, birdied his way home from the 15th for an inward half of 29. That gave him an outside chance of an unexpected win but it was an inexplicable four-putt by Price on the final green that presented Phillips with the title.

    2005 · MAURITIUS GOLF OPEN - MILES TUNNICLIFF

    Tunnicliff endured another nervous climax before successfully defending his title in 2005. The Englishman was a stroke ahead of Portugal's Jose-Filipe on the 18th tee but Lima drove into the water. However, a three-iron recovery shot to within 10-feet of the flag put the pressure back on Tunnicliff, who faced a 25-foot putt for the championship. He left his effort two feet short but Lima's birdie attempt shaved the hole and that spared Tunnicliff any further anxiety.

    2004 · MAURITIUS GOLF OPEN - MILES TUNNICLIFF

    In 2004, Miles Tunnicliff, an Englishman living in Spain, lifted the title but not before he had been given a scare by Barry Lane, who made up six shots over the closing 12 holes but ran out of holes and finished two strokes adrift at the close.

    2003 · MAURITIUS GOLF OPEN - MARC MOULAND

    An even stronger field – possibly the strongest ever – was assembled in 2003. It included Ian Poulter, Graeme McDowell, Simon Khan, Philip Price, Robert Rock, Costantino Rocca, Barry Lane and David Lynn. Unphased by such illustrious opposition, Mouland produced another competent performance to score a one-stroke victory over France's Christian Cevaer.

    2002 · MAURITIUS GOLF OPEN - MARC MOULAND

    A strong 2002 line-up failed to deter in-form Welshman Mark Mouland, whose 13-under-par 203 was four strokes clear of runner-up Martin Lemesurier, from England.

    2001 · MAURITIUS GOLF OPEN - SÉBASTIEN DELAGRANGE

    In 2001, a seven-birdie 65 in the final round swept Frenchman Sebastien Delagrange to a single stroke triumph over Welshman Mark Pilkington, with Denmark's Soren Kjeldsen and Frederic Cupillard, of France, two shots back in third place.

    2000 · MAURITIUS GOLF OPEN - MICHAEL MCLEAN

    The following year, a play-off was needed for the first time, after England's Jonathan Lomas and Marc Farry, of France, finished level on 210, six under par. At the first play-off hole, the 18th, Lomas sank a 40-foot putt for birdie to rescue a half. Playing the hole for a second time he two-putted for birdie to take the title. The Millennium heralded the return to the winner's podium of Michael McLean, who became the first man to win the Mauritius Open twice, but only after a three-man play-off with Germany's Tobias Dier and the Madagascan pro JB Ramarozatovo. McLean's birdie at the second extra hole brought the contest to a conclusion.

    1999 · MAURITIUS GOLF OPEN - JONATHAN LOMAS

    In 1998, Australian Rodger Davis was in the twilight of a career that had seen him occupy the world top 10 ranking for five consecutive years. But even at the age of 47, Davis was still a classy performer, a fact that was confirmed when he carded a winning total of 199, a record 54-hole low for the Legend course.

    1998 · MAURITIUS GOLF OPEN - RODGER DAVIS

    The 1997 MGO produced a tartan triumph for Scottish giant Gordon Sherry.
    The 23-year-old turned professional after winning the 1995 Amateur Championship but the Mauritius Open was to represent the summit of his playing career.
