CRANS MONTANA, Switzerland, Sept. 5 (UPI) -- Luke Donald shot a five-under 66 Sunday to post a five-shot win at the European Masters with a 19-under 265 for his second win of the season.

Miguel Angel Jimenez, who captured last week's BMW International Open, held a one-shot lead heading into the final round but had a closing 72 to take second place at 14-under-par 270.

Robert Coles fired a 64 to join Sergio Garcia, who shared the lead with Donald midway through the final round, and Eduardo Romero at 13-under 271.

Donald returned to the European Tour this year in an attempt to earn a spot on the European Ryder Cup team. It took little time for the Englishman Donald to break into the win column at the Scandinavian Masters.

"I'm glad I made the decision to come over here and rejoin the European Tour," said Donald, who was a winner on the PGA Tour in 2002.
