Pro V1x loyalist Luke Donald: 'My golf ball does what I tell it to do'

Posted: March 2, 2011

 

Who has the best short game in the world?

Pro V1x loyalist Luke Donald, many people will say.

And it's tough to argue, considering Luke's most recent display of around-the-green excellence last week at Dove Mountain in the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship.

Luke got his Pro V1x golf ball up-and-down in several momentum-saving situations throughout the week, never trailing in any of his six matches in one of the most dominant performances in tournament history.

Luke recently told Team Titleist that for every two hours he practice on the range, he puts in four hours of work on and around the green.

In his post-victory press conference, Luke credited that work to much of his success.

As did Luke's final-match opponent: "I think he's probably the best in the world in the short game at the moment… Wherever he is, you know that he will make the up-and-down if he doesn't hole it. And it was impressive."

Team Titleist recently caught up with Luke to talk about his short game and the importance of having confidence in his Pro V1x golf ball.

"My golf ball does what I tell it to do most of the time and I'm very fortunate about that," he said.

We at Hazlemere Golf Club are very proud of the fact that Luke Donald was a Junior at our Club before moving to Beaconsfield and then on to World No3!

In a Tweet a few days ago Luke was asked what was his 1st win - he replied - "Monthly Medal 44 points off 28 aged 9 at Hazlemere".

Hazlemere Golf Club take the coaching of Juniors very seriously and one up and coming star is Josh Stanners (scratch) who competed in Brazil last year in the Faldo Series. Josh has just been made the Buckinghamshire, Berkshire and Oxforshire Junior Captain following on from Emily Marler who was the Buckinghamshire Lady Junior Captain the year before. We wish Luke all the very best - he sets a fantastic example to all players - especially our Juniors. A great inspiration.

That's what I love about the Pro V.  It's as obedient as my pooch!

I'm no Luke Donald, LOL, but I'm a big fan of the ProV1x. I went to a Titleist ball fitting at Harmon Golf last fall and that was the recommendation. The ProV1x is great off the tee and is very responsive around the greens. :-)
