With seven professional wins along with two career victories and over $17 million in earnings on the PGA Tour, Northwestern’s Luke Donald has quietly put together one of the most successful careers in Chicago golf history. Coming from England, Donald accepted a golf scholarship at Northwestern University in 1997. Under the tutelage of Northwestern golf coach Pat Goss, Luke won the individual NCAA Division I Men’s Golf Championships men’s title in 1999, beating the scoring record formerly held by Tiger Woods.
After turning professional in 2001, Donald won the rain-shortened Southern Farm Bureau Classic a year later – becoming only the 11th rookie in PGA Tour history to earn more than $1 million in his first season. In May 2010, Luke won the Madrid Masters by one shot for his first title in four years.
