Luke Donald back at world number one will be looking to build on his impressive record at the Masters Tournament when he makes his eighth appearance at Augusta National next week.
A year ago Donald finished four shots behind winner Charl Schwartzel in a share of fourth place to take his total of top ten finishes at the first Major of the season to three in seven appearances, with tied third back in 2005 on his debut being his best finish yet.
Donald ran up a double bogey in the final round on the par three 12th hole, where his tee shot found Rae’s Creek adjacent to the green, the early momentum he had gained may have propelled him to his first Major title.
As it was, Donald was unable to stop the fast-finishing Schwartzel from claiming his first Green Jacket in spectacular fashion, but Donald is determined to make amends this time around after going so close last year.
Donald is ready to win, he has the talent to win and he is knocking on the door week in week out, but will he open the door next week?
The Masters starts next Thursday, the main coverage is on Sky now, but I think the BBC are showing highlights or maybe even a little bit of live coverage.
