Fair play to Luke Donald who has decided to withdraw from WGC-HSBC Champions in Shanghai to be present for the birth of his second child. It’s all the more commendable considering Donald is bidding for the historic feat of winning the money lists on both European and PGA Tours and $7 million is up for grabs.
Donald said (through gritted teeth!!): "It's important for my wife and it's important for me to make sure that I'm around to support her. It's no coincidence that the birth of our first daughter inspired me to some really great golf.
The Donald family are expecting a little girl. Let’s hope they got the dates right!
