Game not 100% – Donald

Luke Donald (14/1 – Tournament Outright) has said his game is still not 100% but insists things are getting better every week as the Englishman heads into the BMW PGA Championship.

The former world number one has endured a tough time this year and has failed to record a top-10 finish in any tournament so far, with the Englishman missing the cut at the Masters back in April to end up in a tie for 52nd.

Donald’s best finish in 2014 came in the WGC-Cadillac Championship where he was in a tie for 25th position after rounds of 70, 82, 72 and 69 resulted in an overall score of +5.

It has been tough for the 36-year-old who was widely tipped to win a major in his career, but after a succession of disappointing performances the Englishman is looking increasingly unlikely to do so.

Donald has made changes to his game, but he is not fully comfortably with things yet and hopes to improve in the near future.

“Anytime you go through some changes it takes time and I’m still not 100% there and 100% comfortable with everything but every week it seems to get a little bit easier,” he said.

“Certainly when I feel in the groove I feel very confident with the changes I’ve made but it’s still taking a little bit of time.”

Despite not being in great form Donald is still fancied to claim a first top-10 finish of the year and the English ace is 6/5 to achieve this feat.

Fellow countrymen Justin Rose and Lee Westwood are joint favourites at 11/1, whilst Rory McIlroy, who has announced his engagement to Caroline Wozniacki is now off, is priced at 14/1.
