Late developer Jamie Donaldson enjoyed a share of second place at the WGC-Cadillac Championship last week and the 38 year old Welshman is feeling at home amongst golf’s elite.
Unbelievably it took Donaldson 255 events to claim his first win on the European Tour which was the Irish Open, and since that win he has had an impressive run finishing 19th and 5th in consecutive years in The Race To Dubai and also winning the HSBC Golf Championship.
His performance last week shouldn’t be underestimated, he claimed second place on a tough golf course amongst the top 60 golfers in the world. He may have started performing well later on in his career, but he is certainly making up for it now.
His latest run of form has propelled him to second spot in the European Points List, and top of the Race To Dubai Standings, which will pretty much guarantee him a spot on the Ryder Cup Team at Gleneagles in September.
Maybe he could feature in the Majors this year? Probably the US Open and The Open will be the most suited to him. Looking forward to finding out.
