Donald aims for No 1 at World Match Play

European TourCASARES, Spain – England’s Luke Donald has another chance to grab the No. 1 spot off Lee Westwood at the World Match Play Championship, where he is bidding to complete a unique double in the one-on-one format.

The 24-man field will play at Spain’s Costa del Sol, where the European Tour returns after a one-year absence.

Donald won the Accenture World Match Play title at Arizona in February and is looking to become the first player to win both match-play tournaments.

Given his success in the match play format at recent Ryder Cups, the No. 2-ranked Donald is the man to beat this week. However, Westwood has won his last two tournaments – in Indonesia and South Korea.
