WALES’S Jamie Donaldson is set to move even further up golf’s world rankings after pipping England’s Justin Rose to the Abu Dhabi Championship, yesterday.

Donaldson finished 14 under par to beat Rose by one stroke, overcoming a two-shot deficit.

The Welshman is ranked 47th in the world after winning the Irish Open last year, when he also came 19th in the European Tour’s money list. With yesterday’s victory, he will move further up.

“It was nerve wracking,” Donaldson said after a tight finish. “I’m just very happy to be holding the trophy.”
