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...

Chris Wood's Diary:

I’ve experienced a lot of highs and lows over the last two or three weeks - but they were all good i think.

by Chris Wood on June 12, 2010

At Wentworth it was a new experience, leading going into the final round and dealing with lots of different thingsObviously there was a lot of pressure on me. But there were lots of other different little things you’ve got to do, like seeing your name on the leaderboard and trying not to let it get to you. It’s quite easy to let your mind wander a little bit.But the more I can put myself into contention then the more I can learn from experiences like that. I played in Majorca the week before and was there or thereabouts all week as well. It might not be as big as t...

Luke Donald's Diary - 5/25/2010

I have to take all the positives out of the BMW PGA Championship. My short game was terrific, my bunker play at its highest level and I’ve moved up several notches in the race for an automatic Ryder Cup place.

Of course it’s disappointing, when you have a really good chance to win the European Tour’s flagship event and don’t quite pull it off. With two par fives to come and tied for the lead I fancied myself to do it. I tried to hit a little bit of a draw on 17 and just blocked it out and it cost me dearly. But you have to move on from that shot and le...

Chris Wood's Diary:

I had two weeks off after the Masters working really hard on my game with my coach.

by Chris Wood on April 30, 2010

Last year my caddie Dave McNeilly rated my driving two or three out of 10. This year he reckons it's gone up to 7 or 8.I concentrated on actually playing as competitively as I could because I feel my season has been so stop-start that I’ve not got into any groove. I’m anxious to get into a playing mode.  I made sure I played at least nine holes every day. I played 18 holes a day in a four-round tournament format, two rounds at my own club, Long Ashton, and rounds at the Kendleshire in Bristol and Burnham and Berrow.I’ve been playing a lot better than...

Luke Donald's Diary - 4/22/2010

by Luke Donald on April 22, 2010

Before the Masters, obviously we worked on my short-game, shots around the green.   My short game is in really good shape at the moment.  Someone told me that I’m currently ranked #1 for both sand saves and scrambling on the PGA Tour this year.   A lot of practice and those new T-10 wedges. I thought before that the new groove rules might suit me.  Plus with the conforming version of Mizuno’s new Quad Cut groove I’m still getting really good traction.

Augusta is so unique. You nee...
