Mon, 02 Jul 2012 5:00a.m.
Jamie Donaldson of Wales won his first European Tour title by shooting a 6-under 66 to secure a four-stroke victory at the Irish Open.
Beginning the fourth round with a one-shot lead, Donaldson birdied five of his last seven holes to shoot a fourth straight round in the 60s to total 18-under 270 and end an 11-year trophy drought that took in 255 tournaments.
On a day of low scoring in still conditions on the County Antrim links course, Rafael Cabrera-Bello of Spain and Fabrizio Zanotti of Paraguay also shot 66s to finish tied for second with Anthony Wall (69), who played in the final group with Donaldson.
Second-ranked Rory McIlroy, playing at his home tournament, finished strongly with a 67 to place tied for 10th.
