Luke Donald: Hoping to end long wait for a major title
World number one Luke Donald has sought the advice of Nick Faldo in a bid to try and end his wait for a maiden major title.
Donald's consistent form has seen him ride to the top of the world rankings but he will go into this week's Open with just six top-10 finishes in 35 major events.
In 2011 the Englishman became the first player in history to top the money list on both sides of the Atlantic in the same year but he is still striving to improve his game.
And in a bid to improve his record in the most prestigious tournaments Donald has been given some tips by Faldo, the most successful British player of modern times.
"I spoke to him at the Memorial tournament this year. He was all about preparation and being meticulous and was into all the little details," Donald told The Times.
"He said, 'don't force yourself into playing something you are not comfortable with'. I suppose I was aware of it, but it is nice to hear that from one of the guys who has done it."
Donald has been drawn alongside Phil Mickelson and Geoff Ogilvy for the first two rounds at Royal Lytham and St Annes.
The 34-year-old is exploring every possibility in his bid to end his drought having also spoken to 18-time major winner Jack Nicklaus.
He added: "I have got to try my hardest in finding out what is the correct way for me. There is no ego with me, I just want to win."
