Englishman Luke Donald has been one of the top players in the world for some time now and he will be looking to win his first Major Championship this season. Donald was a world number one for some time back in 2011 and despite slipping off that perch slightly he has continued to remain at the top table of world golf ever since. Donald has achieved just about everything there is to achieve in the game outside of winning one of those coveted major Championships which is a record he is eager to put right.
Luke Donald won the money list in both Europe and America in 2011 which was a remarkable achievement as he split his time between both sides of the Atlantic. He is a former World Match Play Champion as well as a multiple stroke play tournament winner with a Major Championship the only thing missing from his CV. As well as winning both money lists in 2011 he was also named the PGA Tour and European tour player of the year which highlights the stature he is held at in the game.
Donald also has a great record in the Ryder Cup having been part of successful European teams in 2004, 2006, 2010 and 2012. He seems to excel at the team game with all the best European players queuing up to partner Donald in the Ryder Cup and he has built up a great record with Sergio Garcia in particular.
Fans across the world love to have a bet on Luke Donald when it comes to the Majors and that will surely continue over the next few years. He is always a big hit with the fans on both sides of the Atlantic and is known for having one of the steadiest games on tour. He may not be particularly long off the tea but in and around the greens there is no one better when he is on form that Luke Donald.
