The PGA Tour is making its way up north and former world number one Luke Donald is excited at the thought that he had a small role to play in the game going there. Donald is an alum of the Northwestern and is also a member of the Conway Farms Golf Club in Lake Forest which will be hosting the BMW Championship between the 12th and 15th of September.
It is one of the four events that go on to decide the FedEx Cup champion at the end of the season.
Speaking about the event, the Englishman stated that he was extremely excited the moment he heard that there was a possibility that the event could come there and he tried his best to push the Tour to ensure that the event happened there.
Luke Donald, who spent over a year at the top of the Official Golf World Rankings further stated that he doesn’t quite know if he could shoulder the responsibility of bringing the event there or not but he admitted that he has always enjoyed his time there and the Conway Farms Golf Club has also been very kind to the program that is run at the Northwestern.
The field has seen Donald swing many times and with the BMW Championship taking place there, Donald can tee off in the comfort of what can be called his home course. The BMW Championship will see the field of 70 narrowed down to the final 30 who will move on to the Tour Championship.
And Luke Donald admitted that he cannot wait for the event before mentioning that still having to wait one more month before it tees off has got him all worked up and added that he hopes to be able to give a good account of himself.
