Crans, Switzerland:

Britain's Luke Donald repaid Bernhard Langer's faith in him by winning the European Masters on Sunday, the week after the European Ryder Cup captain handed him a wildcard. Donald repeated the feat of US wildcard Stewart Cink by winning first time out after being given a captain's pick, as the 26-year-old Englishman claimed his second European Tour title in five weeks. A closing five-under-par 66 for 19-under-par 265 left Donald five strokes in front of Miguel Angel Jimenez and six shots ahead of another Spaniard Sergio Garcia, Argentine Eduardo Romero and Briton Robert Coles. Donald has played most of his golf in America since switching from the amateur ranks in 2001. Since Langer persuaded him in July to fulfil his mandatory 11 European events he has not looked back, picking up over US $850,000 in prize money from just six European money-list events. (AP)
