At Wednesday night's Golf Writers' Association of America dinner, Luke Donald, world No. 1, European and PGA Tour money leader and GWAA player of the year, had a bit of sport at the media's expense for the lack of attention he's received.
"It feels strange to be in a full room," he laughed, a reference to the fact that his press conferences don't tend to draw the crowds of Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson or ... someone else. Donald then donned a curly Rory McIlroy wig and asked the assembled press, "Does that feel better?"
Donald, of course, tends to fly under the radar because, well, because he's not Tiger Woods or Rory McIlroy. And even though he's never won a major, he chafes a bit at the fact that others don't seem to give him a realistic chance. Earlier this week, he pointed out that "It's a little naïve to say that they are the only two with a chance to win around here."
For the record, Luke, we at Devil Ball have picked you to win. Keep that in mind when you're putting on that green jacket on Sunday and give us a shout-out.
