Luke Donald Wins, Kaymer No. 1
By mustang6560 on 2/28/11
What a weekend in golf.

We have a new No. 1 golfer - Martin Kaymer.

The top four players are Europeans (Martin Kaymer, Lee Westwood, Luke Donald, Graeme McDowell) - first time since March 15, 1992.

Luke Donald set a few records with his win in Arizona - first player never to trail during the tournament; only had to play 89 total holes to win, and first player not to play the 18th hole. Here's what Luke had to say about his victory.
"My goal every year is to win," said Donald, who made 32 birdies this week. "It's a long time since I've tried to play for money. I felt like I hadn't won my fair share for as good a player as I felt I was and could be. It was frustrating to me.

"To come here and compete against the best players in the world and win the trophy is very gratifying."
Talk about an exciting week to be a fan of golf. If you didn't watch any of the match play in Arizona, well you missed quite the performance. Luke Donald absolutely dominated. He won 6 and 5, 2 and 1, 3 and 2, 5 and 4, 6 and 5 then 2 and 1 against Kaymer in the final. The day was supposed to be about Martin Kaymer's ascension to the throne of No. 1, but Luke Donald made sure not to pay attention.

The only big loser of the weekend? Bubba Watson. He was the only player to lose twice over the weekend. Bubba took Kaymer the distance in the semis but couldn't hang on and in the consolation match, Bubba lost again to Matt Kuchar. Oh well, his pay check is the true consolation.
