  • Congrats Luke Donald

    Luke made a little bit of history today winning both European Tour Order of Merit.

    All in all this has been maybe one of the best years I've seen in my young age that doesn't have Tiger attached to it.

    Great post. He does so many things well, but his short game is fantastic. It will be an interesting '12 in golf, to see who will get better, move up or fade away. Unless the Mayans are right, of course.

      I'm going with a big IF everyone that played well this year continues to play well next year like the Keegans, Luke, Rory, others regain form and continue they're solid play and so on it will be a very competitive year in golf. I'm sure we'll have some surprises like every year but I can see a very top heavy(Top 25 in the world) dominating golf.

        On a side note; if I ever have to place a bet on a tournament held in the desert regions, my money will always be on Quiros.

        3 of his 6 wins on the euro tour came in the desert. Two alone this year.

                Most encouraging for a lot of golfers - you can be outdriven 50 yards by the long hitters and still dominate!

                  And he uses shafts in his driver and 3 wood from Canada!!!! (shameless plug!)

                  I totally agree with an earlier post.... this is going to be a fun year....
                  Tiger, seemingly finding his stride and so many guys poised to have great years..... look out 2012!! personally, I can't wait!

                      Great achievement. Happy for Luke!
                      Not very long, but in usually on the fairway and is lethal from 150 yds in.

                        That's not entirely correct.

                        Lee Westwood won just a shade over 3 million in 2000 to get the order of merit title. Tiger woods won over 4 million in 9 events; but since the number of events was below minimum requirement, he wasn't listed as the winner of the Order of Merit.

                        Same case in 2002, 2005, 2006, 2007. Won more money than the actual Order of Merit winner; but played in under the minimum # of events.

                        But to do it actually PROPERLY in that Donald played in more than the minimum # is I agree, a great feat. Considering the fashion in which he won the PGA money title as well.

                          Plus Simpson and McIlroy played 37% and 46% more events than Donald.

                          Donald is easily the best golfer now but he needs to get some big wins.

                            Just a question - does the money list now exclude the 4 fed ex cup events?

                            If so, that is at least 3 big money events that use to be on the money list now omitted. Especially the Player's, always was one of the biggest pay day's.


                            Good for Luke, next year will be a bit tougher to repeat this. With Westwood and Rory playing on the PGA Tour full time.

                              Defining year for Donald: #1 OWGR, new daugther, father passed on, winning money title on both tours.
