Former CPOA client Luke Donald secured the world No. 1 golf ranking by winning the BMW PGA Championship on May 29th, beating countryman Lee Westwood in a playoff in what was a duel for top spot between the two players.
"Sounds pretty good, doesn't it," said Donald. "It's an amazing accomplishment. It's something I will be very proud of when I look back. I will savor this moment; it's very special. I think I will stay the same person, I hope I do. I'm looking forward to the challenge of staying No. 1. I know Lee and Martin (Kaymer) will be chasing me very hard."
Even though the Northwestern University alum and former NCAA champion has won only two stroke-play events in five years, he has been a model of consistency and is regarded as one of the top major tournament and match-play players in the world. Luke has always supported our program and our long-time U. K. representative Marva Hall. Congratulations, Luke!
