Donald can overtake No 1 Kaymer with a win


AUGUSTA, Ga. – Luke Donald can seize the No. 1 ranking from Martin Kaymer with a victory on Sunday at the Masters.

With Kaymer missing the cut, No. 4 Luke Donald will ascend to No. 1 if he wins the Masters and Lee Westwood finishes worse than solo second. Donald starts the day five shots off the lead.

No. 2 Lee Westwood (nine shots back), No. 3 Phil Mickelson (nine shots back) and No. 7 Tiger Woods (seven shots back) have chances to ascend with strong finishes.

Westwood ascends with a win but can also ascend with second-, third- or fourth-place finishes. He moves up with a second as long as Mickelson doesn't win. He moves up with a third as long as Mickelson or Donald don't win. He moves up with a fourth as long as Donald doesn't win and Mickelson is out of the top two.

Mickelson ascends with a win. He can also ascend if he finishes second as long as Donald doesn't win and Westwood finishes outside the top three.

Woods must win with Mickelson worse than solo second and Westwood finishing outside the top three.
