Q&A: Luke Donald tells us his 'Best & Worst'
Luke Donald is a former world number one and plays most of his golf on the PGA Tour, although he is also a member of the European Tour.
What’s the best thing about being a pro?
Getting to play a sport for a living. It doesn’t get much better than that
What about the worst?
being away from home so much, Ive got young family and I’m on the roa almost 30 weeks a year.
What’s your best shot?
I’m a great wedge player so I love the 100 yard sand wedge
And the worst?
Lately it’s probably off the tee with the driver, I’d love to be a little more consistent with that.
Who would you say is the best type of playing partner?
Someone who is friendly, upbeat and plays fast who is ready when its their turn.
The worst type of playing partner?
Someone who is very jumpy and loses their temper and is very slow.
Who has the best banter or best jokes on Tour?
Tim Clarke is pretty funny he has a lot of jokes
And what about the least funny?
Rory Sabbatini, he tries but it doesn’t come off well.
Who has the best dress sense?
I’ve always though Adam Scott is very stylish, simple and classic. Ive got to say my man Billy Horschel, he rocks the RLX and he’s out there! He gets noticed.
Who has the worst dress sense?
Got to go with Patrick Reed. (For those baggy trousers)
What’s the worst rule in golf?
Probably that you can’t touch a spike mark on the green.
Your best mid round snack?
I eat a lot of protein bars, I eat these bars called E bars, sometimes just a bag full of nuts or almonds, cashews whatever, something like that.
Who would win a Tour arm wrestling tournament?
Wow who would win? there’s pretty strong guys out there but we’ve obviously seen Rory get beat by that college kid so I’m not going to put him in there. Who’s a big lad? Jamie Lovemark maybe?
And who would come last?
Who’s wimpy is that what you’re asking me? Nice questions, who am I going to throw under the bus… I’ll go with Ben Crane, sorry Ben.
Best or worst question from the media?
Did you feel good about that shot you hit to 2-feet? well yeah i did actually. The best? how about whats the best question anyone has ever asked you? there you go, you just did it. I couldn’t even answer it that’s how good it was!
