Donald makes history then flies to Australia

The final round action on the European Tour’s Race to Dubai belied the boring course design. It was interesting and captivating in contrast.

donaldLuke Donald made golf history yesterday by becoming the first golfer to capture the European and US Tour money titles in the same year.

Spain’s Alvaro Quiros won in Dubai for the second time this year with a massive eagle putt on the last hole which snuffed out any chance of victory that Paul Lawrie may have been contemplating. But a third place finish to Donald secured the European money list title with a fantastic putting display that we’ve come to expect from Englishman.

The world number one golfer has had a remarkable year and earning around $13.5 million dollars on both tours in prize money. And that doesn’t include the prize winners cheque, and appearance money for this week’s JBWere Australian Masters in Melbourne, where he will be making his first appearance on Australian soil.

    Didn’t Karlsson win it last year, I think Quiros won the other Dubai event earlier this year Mick
