Final round (Sunday)

Luke Donald started the final round with a two-stroke lead over countryman Justin Rose. After being caught by Justin Rose four holes into the final round, Donald birdied 6, 7 and 10 to gain a three shot lead. The gap went to five at the 16th when Donald made another birdie, while Rose bogeyed after hitting a bunker. Paul Lawrie hit a best-of-the-day 66 to catch Rose. They finished tied second with a final score of –11, four shots behind champion Donald.[5] Luke Donald is only the third player, after Nick Faldo and Colin Montgomerie, to win successive PGA Championship titles.
