Donald achieves double
DUBAI - Reuters
REUTERS photoLuke Donald was on top of the world in more ways than one yesterday after becoming the first player to win the money-list crowns in Europe and the United States.
Rival Rory McIlroy needed to win the Dubai World Championship to deny Englishman Donald the chance of topping the order of merit in Europe but the young Northern Irishman ended up in joint 11th place on nine-under 279 after closing with a 71.
The 34-year-old Donald, who has been at the summit of the world rankings for 27 weeks, had already clinched the U.S. Tour’s money-list crown in October.
