Dave has thoroughly enjoyed investing time with Luke Donald. It's great to lay down a marker as world's number 1 in any sporting context. He is only the third Englishman to do this in golf.
Let's hope Luke can now go on to win a major...
"Donald's form has coincided with the link-up with with performance coach Dave Alred - ex-guru of England rugby star Jonny Wilkinson - to compliment the work of his swing coach of 14 years Pat Goss. The player also said the birth of his first child Elle last year has been a huge benefit to his life."
"Donald drew on the work he has been doing with Alred on performing under pressure - they are trying to instil a mindset that views success as inevitable - and dug deep, pulling off the kind of escapes that were the trademark of the late, great Seve Ballesteros, who won five World Matchplays and the PGA title at Wentworth."
