Luke Donald latest to confirm Ryder Cup absence

Luke Donald is now officially out of the running for the 2004 Ryder Cup.

Donald has joined Jesper Parnevik, Carl Pettersson and Mathias Gronberg in saying he does not intend to fit 11 European Tour events into his schedule and thus has been omitted from the new Ryder Cup qualification tables

The 11-tournament rule has sparked controversy, with Lee Westwood among those who believe Donald and the rest should not be punished for basing themselves on the US Tour.

In March he said: "There's no doubt I would love to play in the Ryder Cup, but I've made my home in the States now and I don't think it would make sense to uproot myself and return to Europe just so that I can play the 11."
