Donald Scores Another Win At The Dunlop Phoenix

by Iver Maple on November 19, 2012

Luke Donald has climbed back to World No.2 after claiming another victory with his new Mizuno MP-64 irons.  In a dominant performance, Luke finished at 16 under par to win the Dunlop Phoenix by a five stroke margin.

Since placing the MP-64s into his bag at The Barclays at the end of August, Luke has claimed four top-ten finishes in seven events and not finished worse than tied 28th.  And they were key to this victory at Phoenix Country Club as Donald topped the greens in regulation chart at 80.56%.

"Honored to add my name to the great champions that have won the Dunlop Phoenix Tournament", tweeted Donald. "I’ve loved my week here in Japan. It’s a great event on a great course."

During his Japanese adventure, Luke also found time to meet some of our Mizuno Japan craftsmen behind his new MP-64s at the revered Yoro factory – and also engaged in a thorough testing session with the R&D team.

This triumph from Luke comes on the heels of JPX user and LPGA Tour Player of the Year Stacy Lewis’ Mizuno Classic victory a week previous, also on Japanese soil.

Congratulations Luke!
