Win sees Donald climb to second

 

Golf: Luke Donald is back ahead of Tiger Woods as world number two after a five-stroke victory at the Dunlop Phoenix tournament in Japan. Donald fired a closing 68 to finish the week 16 under par, with Japan's Hideki Matsuyama second after a 67 and compatriot Koumei Oda's 64 lifting him to third spot.

Four clear with a round to go, Donald's first win since the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth in May never looked in doubt after he birdied the fourth, eagled the seventh and birdied the next.

He did bogey the next two, but then came seven pars and a birdie on the long 18th.
