Luke Donald and BMW PGA Championship

Luke Donald is excited about playing in the BMW PGA Championship and cannot wait to defend his title at Wentworth Club next month. Luke rates this as the biggest tournament outside the Major Championships, and this is where he beat Lee Westwood in a play-off last year to not only claim the coveted trophy but rob his compatriot of the World Number One spot, a position Luke held on to for a total of 40 weeks. Luke spoke about his ambitions for this year;

“The BMW PGA Championship is the best event we play outside the Majors on The European Tour. Obviously the Majors come first. Those are the events I’m looking to try to win at the top of the list, but Wentworth isn’t far behind. For me it has a special, personal feeling too, because I grew up so close to it. I came as a kid a few times to watch and I have some special memories having won there as well. There’s a sentimental factor. I had a few wins last year, but I think Wentworth was the most fun and the most enjoyable because I got that World Number One ranking. It just all seemed to happen for a reason that week, at the flagship event of The European Tour, going against Lee who was World Number One and doing it in front of lots of friends and family. Especially having grown up just down the road, it was very special.  It’s a bigger event with the world class field that it attracts, and you always get up for those big events. I’m extremely excited to go back there and defend.”

“Who better to take down than the Number One player?” he said. “And the fact he happened to be British and English, that made that one much more satisfying.  If I’d been going against a lesser name, the win still would have been special, but in terms of going head to head with Lee, it was a special one. Right now we have so many guys who are ranked highly. We are always trying to get one over the other. We do have good relationships off the course, so on the course, certainly we are trying to beat each other.”

Last year's BMW PGA Championship was a truly special week for Luke Donald  (EuropeanTour)

Since then the World Number One title has seesawed between Luke and  Rory McIlroy, but the 34 year old knows that if he can produce a similar performance over Wentworth Club’s demanding West Course to last years super effort, he will return to the pinnacle of the Official World Golf Rankings. It would be a real boost for Luke to win at Wentworth, and return to the number one spot and I will be cheering him on, albeit from my TV armchair down here in New Zealand. Incidently, I too lived just up the road from Wentworth, used to drive past it everyday, but have never played there. Perhaps one day I will make it, its on my bucket list !!!
