Indian golfer SSP Chowrasia dropped six shots in just two holes and slipped down the leader board as he finished tied 39th in the inaugural D+D REAL Czech Masters here.

Chowrasia, who started the final round in tied 17th place finished with a final round of four-over 76 as he tried to recover lost ground with three birdies on the back nine yesterday.

Chowrasia had a sedate start with two pars before he double bogeyed the par-3 third hole and then had a quadruple on par-4 fourth hole. That was six shots gone in two holes.

Shiv Kapur (72) was tied 52nd at even par for four rounds, while Gaganjeet Bhullar (76) at two-over was 69th.

Meanwhile, Jamie Donaldson confirmed his place at The 2014 Ryder Cup in the most spectacular fashion as the Welshman claimed his third European Tour title, courtesy a two-shot victory.

The 38-year-old carded a four-under par final round 68 to overcome his countryman and first round leader Bradley Dredge, andd finish with a winning total of 14-under and earn a place in Paul McGinley's European team.

With so much at stake, Donaldson showed the poise and determination of a future Ryder Cup star and raced out of the blocks, starting with three successive birdies before a bogey at the fourth pegged him back to two-under for the day, having found the trees from the tee.

He claimed that shot back, however, with a three at the par four sixth hole to reach the turn in three-under, before rolling in a putt from 25 feet at the 10th for birdie and capitalising on the final par five, the 13th, for another gain.

A bogey at the tricky 17th hole did not prove costly for Donaldson as Dredge also ran up a five after driving into the water hazard.
