Jamie Donaldson led the Dibai Desert Classic with a first round 10-under par 62 Thursday with two-time winner Rory McIlroy three shots off the Welsh leader.After starting from the 10th tee, Donaldson was bogey-free for his round with an eagle on the par-5 13th and moved to 11-under par after four birdies in a row from the fourth hole onward.With two holes to play, he had a shot at Ernie Els's 24-year-old course record of 61, and more importantly, a chance to shoot the first-ever 59 on the European Tour.He almost holed his chip from the edge of the green for a birdie before settling for par on the eighth hole, and then closed with a bogey on the ninth after hitting his drive into the fairway bunker.
