Introducing, the new No. 1

Golden Bear calls Luke Donald’s game golden before Memorial
By winning the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth in a playoff over Lee Westwood, Luke Donald (pictured) became only the 15th player to be No. 1 in the 25 years of the world ranking.
Luke Donald (pictured) will make his debut as the new No. 1 today when he tees off at the Memorial in Dublin, Ohio, with the last two Masters champions, Charl Schwartzel and Phil Mickelson.
Jack Nicklaus, the tournament host at this weekend’s Memorial, can attest to the improved game of the new No. 1-ranked golfer in the world: “There isn’t anybody who spends more time working on his golf game than I’ve seen in Luke Donald,” Nicklaus said.
