Luke Donald won the BMW PGA Championship by four shots from Paul Lawrie and Justin Rose, reclaiming the world no. 1 spot from Rory McIlroy, who missed the cut, with his seventh European Tour victory and 13th worldwide. Shooting four rounds in the 60s, Donald made a successful defence of the title which he won last year in a playoff with Lee Westwood, bringing him the No. 1 spot for the first time. Rose climbs four places to world no. 6, while Lawrie climbs 11 to 29th.
Zach Johnson won the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial by one shot from Jason Dufner, despite being assessed a two-stroke penalty after failing to return his ball to its original position after marking it on the final 72nd green. He climbs 10 places to world no. 17, while Dufner breaks into the top 10 for the first time at no. 8, up 6 places, having begun the year
in 33rd.
