US Open only on

U.S. Open 2014

12th-15th June

Presented by

Luke Donald

Although he's turned into a proven winner on both regular tours and risen to world number one, Donald's record in the majors is now turning into a cause for concern after another opportunity passed him by at Augusta. Not only has Luke not won a major, he's contended in very few and his record in the US Open is the worst of the lot. Despite many thinking the tournament should play to his strengths the 34-year-old hasn't managed a single top 10 in eight attempts. It suggests that Donald could actually be the proof for those who say the US Open is more about strength and power than you think as evidenced by the recent wins for long-hitters such as McIlroy, Glover, Woods, Cabrera and Ogilvy. The good news for Donald is that respected analyst Johnny Miller, who grew up playing Olympic Club, reckons this year's US Open venue will suit him much more and the Californian has tipped him as one of the players he likes for victory. Luke's successful defence of his BMW PGA Championship title at Wentworth at the end of May will have put him in great heart and if he can get amongst the leaders, his new-found ability to close out tournaments must surely stand him in excellent stead.
