World number two Luke Donald
has revealed his quest to return to the top of the official rankings is secondary this weekend as he concentrates on defending his title at the BMW PGA Championship.
The 34-year-old Englishman is up against some of the biggest names in the sport at the Wentworth Club in Surrey today (May 25th) after finishing the first round with an impressive six-under-par.
Donald topped the rankings for the first time by winning the same event last year and remained at the top until Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy replaced him in March.
He managed to beat compatriot Lee Westwood
in a play-off round to steal the crown in 2011, with the now world number three also taking part this weekend.
"It's a privilege to be world number one. Getting there was a lot of work and it's something I will tell my grandchildren about," Donald told BBC Sport. "But the main goal is to go out and try to defend my title."
