Luke Donald looked at the leader board while he was waiting to putt out on the 18th green.
He saw the cutline: 2 over. He was 2 over. He started the week with position outside the top-100 players, he putt far from the distance of 7 feet and this showed that his season was on the line.
And to him, it also meant the closure of the frustrating stretch of golf. Donald made his way to the THE NORTHERN TRUST after missing eight cuts consecutively on the PGA TOUR. He reached at the RBC Heritage in mid-April. And on a shot-maker’s course he finished solo second as it suited for his game.
After then, out of his last 16 rounds only three have been in red numbers. And the lowest of him was 64, which he shot in the round of four-ball with his partner Jamie Lovemark of New Orleans during the team event at the Zurich Classic. That week, by two shots they missed the cut.
And until reaching to this point, he never has missed over three consecutive cuts after becoming a full-time member of the TOUR in the year 2002.
Donald said, “We had been through a tough run in the last few months,” however, this summer, he is the one who made the cut into the two European Tour events. “It is a game which is a fickle. While playing it last summer, it doesn’t seem that I am far away. Instead, I feel like something good is coming soon. And I made the cut to the European Tour events, which is truly astonishing.”
Nevertheless, he finds it a little tough to compete on the courses that requires the length off the tee. In the strokes gained He ranks 193rd.
