Donald makes it four Englishmen in world top ten
May 31, 2010

Luke Donald won the Madrid Masters as he bounced back from his Wentworth disappointment in style. Donald, who missed out on the BMW PGA Championship by a shot after taking a double bogey seven on the penultimate hole, this time grabbed a brilliant eagle to settle his duel with Welshman Rhys Davies. Level with three to play, the 32 year old hit a 252 yard fairway wood to 12 feet on the long 16th for his third eagle of the week. The victory lifts Donald from 13th to ninth in the Official World Golf Rankings - and makes it an incredible four English players in the world's top ten just nine years after Lee Westwood was the only one in the top 100.

Zach Johnson won the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial with a tournament record 21-under 259, sealing his victory with a pair of birdies in the short span of play in between two late weather delays Sunday. His 14-foot birdie putt at the 17th hole gave him a two-stroke lead over Brian Davis and Davis bogeyed the last to leave Johnson's margin of victory at 3 strokes. Johnson, the 2007 Masters Champion, moves up to world number 16, an improvement of 19 positions. Davis climbs 45 places into 72nd.

This week's other winners were Kim Kyung-Tae at the Diamond Cup Golf on the Japan Tour and Lee Slattery at the Telenet Trophy on the Challenge Tour.
