Ross Kinnaird/Getty Images(ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates) — Jamie Donaldson captured the Abu Dhabi Championship on Sunday by one shot over Justin Rose. The 32-year-old Rose had chance to force a playoff, but his 8-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole narrowly missed.

The 37-year-old Donaldson entered the final round trailing by two strokes, but overtook Rose on the 11th hole after he birded and Rose bogeyed.

Denmark’s Thorbjorn Olesen finished tied with Rose for second, while Ricardo Santos of Portugal finished in fourth, three strokes behind. Braden Grace of South Africa came home in fifth, four shots behind.
