Donaldson wins Czech Masters, makes Ryder Cup
VYSOKY UJEZD, Czech Republic (AP) Jamie Donaldson shot 4-under 68 Sunday to win the Czech Masters and secure a spot on the European Ryder Cup team.
Tied in second with Soren Kjeldsen overnight, Donaldson took the lead when his Danish opponent made two straight bogeys on the last two holes of the front nine. The Welshman surged further ahead with two birdies on the first three of the back nine holes.
Donaldson birdied six holes and dropped two shots for a total 14-under 274 in windy conditions at the Albatross Golf Resort near Prague for his third European Tour victory.
Donaldson needed a top-seven finish to guarantee a debut in next month's match against the United States.
Third-round leader Bradley Dredge was two strokes back for the first 1-2 Welsh finish on the European Tour.
