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...

Like everyone in golf, the Ryder Cup has dominated my thoughts and attention

by Chris Wood on October 6, 2010

I'm envious of those that made the team.Especially living in Bristol, only half an hour from Celtic Manor.When they started I was in the gym when the match was badly disrupted by bad weather. Some of the members said ‘I bet you’re glad you’re not playing’. I’d play the Ryder Cup in snow or a sand-storm. The atmosphere was fantastic, like a football stadium.Of course I’m envious of those that made it into the team, but I’m young and I’ve got at least 20 years of Ryder Cup chances in me, I hope.It just didn’...

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...

Chris Wood's Diary:

I thought I was going to put in some dedicated putting practice the week after the Portugese Open

by Chris Wood on July 10, 2010

I thought i was going to put in some dedicated putting practice the week after the Portugese Open but when i got home, a leaking water tank had flooded most of my flat.I wonder if anyone else noticed my socks.Three-quarters of my flat floor had to be ripped up. That was very stressful and bang went my putting practice that week, so I decided to take the following week off as well, the BMW International week.I then got some useful putting practice in. I was still a little frustrated with my stroke in the French Open – 35 putts for level-par on the Saturday, for ins...

Luke Donald's Diary - 7/05/2010

by Luke Donald on July 5, 2010

I've put a lot of planning into this year's Open Championship and I'm hoping that is all going to pay off at St Andrews.

People have been telling me I'd be better playing in Europe most of the time.

After playing in JP McManus’s tournament I’m going up to Ballybunion, Lahinch, Waterville and Old Head – all great courses and all great for preparation for St Andrews. I think it’s vital to have links practice.  I’ve got a few friends coming up so we’ll have a good time as well.

I did something...
