Luke Donald Secures Big Win on the Yas Marina Circuit
Here’s something you’re not likely to see again, four of golf’s biggest names competing on one of the world’s most famous Formula One tracks. The catch- instead of a F1 car they’re racing golf buggies!
Earlier this week Luke Donald, Sergio Garcia, Matteo Manassero and Paul Casey went head-to-head on Abu Dhabi’s Yas Marina Circuit. The heated yet friendly race proved a great warm-up ahead of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship.
Each golfer completed a qualifying lap before the final battle, which saw Donald pull ahead from the pack to capture the inaugural race title.
“I’m so proud, humbled and excited,” Donald said afterwards. Hopefully this is the start of many good things to come!
So what does Donald think was the key to his success?
I think I had the weight advantage – the other guys eat too much!
