Luke Donald (FJ ICON MyJoys) bested Lee Westwood (DryJoys Tour #53635 and SciFlex) in a playoff to capture the European Tour's flagship event, the BMW PGA Championship at the Wentworth Club in Surrey, England. The players faced brutal conditions all week and they both finished the tournament at 6 under, 278 total. On the first playoff hole Donald safely pitched his 3rd shot onto the green within 6 feet, placing the pressure on Westwood to match him. Westwood's approach would land on the green only to spin back into the water. Donald would then hole his six footer for the victory. The win moves Donald to number one on the Official World Golf Rankings, supplanting his fellow countryman Westwood.
Donald is embracing his new status stating, “It doesn't get much better. I'm not sure if there will ever be a case
where Number One and Number Two in the world are playing off for the
tournament, but also a chance for the Number One ranking in the world. A
unique history I think has been made, and glad to be a part of it.”
