Jamie Donaldson fought back to win the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship, earning a slim one-stroke win after recording a 4-under in his last round of the tournament.
It's arguably the biggest win of Donaldson's career and is only the second career win the 37-year-old Weslhman has registered on the European Tour, to go alongside three career wins on the Challenge Tour. Donaldson had shot a 5-under on the day to give himself a two-stroke lead, but nearly cost himself a chance at a win on the 18th hole, three-putting for a bogey. That gave Justin Rose and Thorbjorn Olesen a chance to tie him if they birdied the last hole, but both recorded pars, giving Donaldson the win.
Rose had started the day at 12-under, with Olesen at 10-under. Ricardo Santos and Branden Grace had strong days to put themselves in the top five on the leaderboard, shooting 4-under and 7-under respectively to finish fourth and fifth.
