LODDEKOPINGE, Sweden (AP) — Ricardo Gonzalez has won the SAS Masters by two strokes, making birdies on five of the final six holes for his first European Tour victory.

The 39-year-old Argentine shot a 4-under 69 on Sunday to finish at 10-under 282 on the 7,665-yard Barseback Golf Club course - the longest in European Tour history.

Jamie Donaldson of Wales closed with a course-record tying 68 to take second. Jeppe Huldahl of Denmark (74) was third, another two shots back.

Gonzalez pitched to 2 feet on the 16th, then holed a bunker shot on the next to take the lead. On the last hole, he hit over trees to within 5 feet of the flag.

Overnight leader Marcus Fraser of Australia slipped to a 77 and shared fourth at 288 with six others.
