FARMINGDALE, N.Y – Luke Donald won't wait until Thursday's first round to experience the pressure of a U.S. Open. He'll play a full 18 on Tuesday just as if it were a normal round, keeping score on every hole. It's how he prepares for every major. 'It gives me a sense of what I need to work on and how the course is playing and what I can expect,' said Donald. 'It's a nice little warm-up for Thursday. There's always jitters, always nerves being such a big tournament, but the more you prepare the easier it is to get into the flow of the round.'
