Donald eyes money list double

Luke Donald goes into the final event on the European Tour in Hong Kong with the opportunity of making history by becoming the first player to top the money lists in both American and Europe in the same season.

Donald is more than €1 million ahead of his nearest challenger in the money list in the Race to Dubai and a strong performance in the final event of the calendar would seal the historic double for the Englishman. Those following the best internet betting odds should remember this.

German Martin Kaymer is second in the list but has opted not to play in Hong Kong so will not be able to catch Donald, however, third placed Rory Mcllroy is still in the hunt and could pass the world number one if he wins this week’s tournament.

Donald secured top spot in American by winning the Disney Classic in Florida on October 23.

The fight goes on this week on the European Tour to secure a place in the season finale in Dubai, as the top 60 players in the money list qualify for the lucrative event. South African Hennie Otto boosted his chances of qualifying by winning the South African Open at the weekend in his home country to move up to 56th in the list.

The man who will be looking over his shoulder in Hong Kong will be Ireland’s Peter Lawrie, he is currently just inside the cut-off point in 60th place. One position outside the qualifying table is Scotland’s Stephen Gallacher. Steve Webster, Peter Whiteford and Tom Lewis then follow respectively in the list and will be desperate for one of the top positions in Asia.
