Donald takes confidence from PGA win
Luke Donald says winning the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth on Sunday gives him plenty of confidence for this summer's Majors.
The Englishman moved back to world number one following another impressive victory this weekend and the 34-year-old believes the success can stand him in good stead for the upcoming Majors as he still chases his first ever win in one of the big four competitions. Donald's triumph at Wentworth was all the more sweeter as he became only the third player to retain the title, shooting a final-round 68 to finish four shots ahead of Justin Rose and Paul Lawrie. He was delighted with the victory, which sees him replace Rory McIlroy as world number one again, and hopes to build on it over the next few months. "To defend and get back to number one is very sweet indeed," he said afterwards. "I got the job done and I take a great amount of satisfaction." Donald admitted he did feel the scrutiny on him as he chased back-to-back Wentworth wins but was obviously pleased with the overall outcome ahead of bigger events to come. "This is a big week and I felt some of the pressure," added Donald. "These victories are key to bringing that confidence into the majors."
