Welshman Jamie Donaldson carded a final round 68 to take home the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship by a single stroke.  Donaldson, in FJ ICON and StaSof, posted a smooth 34 on the front nine that included two bookend birdies and seven pars.  His unflappable play continued for the first eight holes on the backside until a three putt bogey on the last gave his chasers some hope.  They failed to capitalize on their opportunity, giving Donaldson the win.

“It’s pretty surreal really, I’ve played really good all week although I’ve got away with murder up the last" Donaldson stated post round.  Continuing "I played the pro-am on Wednesday and thought the course was too difficult and I had no chance,I thought if I could get a decent finish I would be chuffed...To be holding this trophy is just mad." 

This is Donaldson's second European Tour victory, his first coming in the Irish Open at Royal Portrush the previous year.  The win also moves Donaldson inside the top 30 in the Official World Golf Rankings.
