To earn the world the number one ranking is an amazing feat and to win as world number one is even better. Luke Donald played marvelous golf in shooting a final round 63 to win The Scottish Open by four strokes.
Playing a soggy Castle Stuart course, Donald had four consecutive birdies on the front (3 thru 6) and followed that with four more birdies on the back to win for the third time this season.
Donald has victories at some prominent tournaments so far this year. He notched wins at The WGC Accenture Match Play and The BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth in addition to this Scottish Open triumph.
Donald felt that this win was “perfect preparation (for The Open) and it doesn’t get better than going out and win the week before.”
