PRAGUE (REUTERS) - Jamie Donaldson secured his place in Europe's team for next month's Ryder Cup at Gleneagles with a fine final round to win the Czech Masters at the Albatross Golf Resort by two shots on Sunday.

Welshman Donaldson needed a top-seven finish to secure his Ryder Cup debut and did so in style, shooting a final round four-under-par 68 to finish at 14-under 274, winning his third European Tour title in the process.

The 38-year-old overcame a two-shot deficit to compatriot Bradley Dredge on the final day, who finished second on 12-under.

South African Merrick Bremner and Denmark's Soren Kjeldsen finished tied for third a shot further back.
