Luke Donald gets ready for the US Open

by Luke Donald on June 3, 2011

The second major of the season looms and I’m delighted to be in great form coming into the US Open.I do know a little about the Congressional course. I played there a couple of times in US Open qualifying back in 2002 when I wasn’t exempt. I got through there and that might bode well for me.  So I’ve played a couple of rounds there and I remember most of the holes.The plan is, though, to go the week before the US Open, get in a few practice rounds and refresh my memory of the course. It’s a long course, a typical US Open course, ve...

Luke Donald reflects on his win to become the Number One player in the world.

by Luke Donald on May 30, 2011

To come through in those circumstances in one of the biggest tournaments in the world, going head-to-head with Lee, was pretty special. It doesn't get much better. I'm not sure if there will ever be a case where No. 1 and No. 2 in the world are playing off for the tournament, but also a chance for the No. 1 ranking in the world. Unique history I think has been made, and I’...

Luke Donald's Diary - 12/22/2010

by Luke Donald on December 22, 2010

Overall it’s been a very successful season, definitely a step up from last year. Coming off the wrist injury, 2009 was a bit speculative year but 2010 has been much better.

My consistency has really improved, winning again in Europe was great encouragement for me, and to be part of a triumphant Ryder Cup team was a real highlight. I don’t know why but my game seems to elevate to a different level playing in a team atmosphere, right from my amateur days. I’ve been fortunate to be on winning teams and I’ve now gone through three Ryder Cups and two Walker...

Luke Donald's Diary - 10/18/2010 - Ryder Cup Recap

by Luke Donald on October 18, 2010

I’ve not been to a tournament yet in America to find out what the reaction is to the Ryder Cup. I know my American friends will be just as generous in their reaction, though, as they were on the Monday night when we Europeans celebrated our nail-biting victory.

I thoroughly enjoyed myself at Celtic Manor. I’ve always said to everyone that I love Ryder Cup. I love that team atmosphere and match play. It was great to get back into the swing of things after missing out in 2008.  My game always seems to rise to the occasion of the Ryder Cup. I had a great Ryder C...

Luke Donald's Diary - 9/03/2010

by Luke Donald on September 3, 2010

This was a very hard team to get into. Everyone seemed to be playing great. I’m delighted to be back. We have a very strong squad and I’m looking forward to being part of it again, hoping to help Europe get the Ryder Cup back. I really missed not being in the 2008 team because of the wrist injury and I’m very excited. I thought I had a chance but there were a lot of world-class candidates.

I found out after 10 holes on Sunday at the Barclays, though. I was going along nicely, out in 28, then I found out – and I went to pieces!  Talking to the othe...
