Luke Donald has been under some pressure to maintain his number position in the World Golf Rankings. He climbed up to the numero uno position after winning a whole bunch of tournaments in Europe and The United States of America.
But of late he has not been in his best shape and form and has had a slow start to this season. He has recently been blessed with a daughter and has hence cannot be blamed for having taken his eyes off the golf.

Luke Donald was beaten five and four by Ernie Els of South Africa in the very first round itself.

He is still hopeful of making things turn around in his favour.
