Donald seeks elusive major win this year
Luke Donald had a fantastic 2011, winning both the European and PGA Tour money lists – a historic first - and maintaining his hold on the world number one ranking, but top of his wish-list for the next 12 months is that elusive first major win.

Donald did have top-10 finishes at the Masters and the US PGA Championship, but he was never in contention at the US Open and failed to make the cut at the British Open.

"Obviously the goal every year is to try to win the biggest events, and those are the majors," he said.

"Obviously having had a year like I did last year, I did everything but win a major in a way. That would be the top of my goals - to try to win a major. But to do that you have to put yourself in contention."

Donald will begin his 2012 season at this weeks’ Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship, where he has been paired with Tiger Woods and 2011 US Open champion Rory McIlroy.

Playing alongside Woods inevitably brings along added media attention and pressure, but Donald is confident he can deal with the extra attention.

"Obviously with Tiger, it's not just playing with Tiger. It's the fact that he brings a bigger crowd. There's a little bit more of an atmosphere. You're going to feel a little bit differently," he said.
