Re: How does Luke Donald hope to get up the world rankings?

Well, I certainly agree that LD needs to play more in regular events and given that last years major sites were generally more suited to his game he still came up short. NPI.

Also, his bridesmaids finish didn't have bombers because their advantage is reduced and they avoid Harbour Town just as LD is likely to avoid a bombers paradise.  

There is $ooooooo much currency available to these players today that they can pick and choose what is best for them.  The job, pga professional, while still incredibly competitive and cutting edge has become specialized and these millionaire golfers now pick their games like a golf shark chooses their pigeon, carefully.

LD likely has one chance left in his career, Augusta, all the others are simply far too modern and focused on bombing.  Luke has his work cut out especially with the youth bent that is becoming LPGAish.

Woody a creditable 6th at the Austrian Open (his first outing after winning at Wentworth?), so should consolidate his top 25 status.

Woody tied 23rd at US Open, but ranking drops from 23 to 24. I still don't understand this.

Donald misses cut and is down to 82 :(

Hi OhBoy!, apologies if this has been answered before/elsewhere.

I think the ranking is based on an average of results from the last 2 years with some increased weighting given to more recent events. 

So someone could do well this weekend but if others have performed better historically then the week on week movement may not be as you would have expected.

Four strokes is an eternity for Luke Donald to over take OWGR #1

25 strokes is the reality that make modern golf mostly about distance... WoW did Stenson put on a stripe show.

2nd place at Wyndham helps. Nice to see him actually getting some TV time in the states during the main broadcast. He almost had a second hole-in-one on the 16th on Sunday.

He seemed to have put together four good rounds this event. Which is great to see. Who know's a wee run of form now could make such a difference. Wild card for the Ryder Cup ??

Luke has become such an after thought they showed Furyk making a par, yet LD had less than two feet for birdie that took them 10 minutes to finally play.  LD has either ***** off some TV folk, lost so much media status or the media is simply brain dead.

BTW, he averaged over 300 yards this week-end, reported 303.5 TOUR AVG 309.2.

Short course, lighter rough allows bunters like Graham MacDowell and Luke to contend.

Bump.

Woody a creditable joint second after 2 rounds at Sun City. A good end to the season?

Donald seems to enter only selected events. Winding down career? TV beckoning?
