Dubai World Championship December 11 2011

Luke Donald finishes third in the Dubai World Championship, which leaves him topping the European money list. Congratulations Luke on becoming the first man to top the money lists on both sides of the Atlantic. Congratulations also to Alvaro Quiros on winning the Championship, with an eagle on the last to edge out Paul Lawrie. European Tour chief executive George O'Grady has said the Championship will stay at the Jumeirah Golf Estates course for the next three years. As of next year it will be rebranded to DB World Championship. I wonder why people spend all that money on a brand name, and then go and change it.

"Any time you're able to dig deep and find the right shots when it becomes the hardest, then it serves you well and hopefully I can use that to guide me to a major or two coming up." Luke Donald
