Luke Donald says he hopes his time is coming

The leader board was so tightly packed going into the final rounds of the US Open that heartbreak was almost guaranteed for many golfers. And as happens quite often, Phil Mickelson took the brunt of it all, finishing with his sixth runners-up trophy at the major event but Luke Donald did not emerge from the event fully unscathed in any case. The Englishman was on top of the leader board for the early part of the event, no mean feat, considering the former world number one is still chasing his first major title.

But his stumble in the third round saw him drop down from the sole lead to two shots behind the leader and was no better on the final day of the event as well, as he plunked the volunteer with a shot as well as shooting a 75 to drop down to eighth place in the final rankings. Speaking to local English daily, Luke Donald stated that there is always the chance that one will walk away with disappointment when the choice is there.

However, according to the Englishman, he walked away from the event with a lot of encouragement this time around because for the first time in his career, he out himself in a position to contend for the title at the US Open. He went on to state that there were a lot of benefits this year, mentioning the fact that players like Adam Scott and Justin Rose who won at Augusta and the US Open respectively have given him a lot of confidence because their career paths have been similar to him.

Luke Donald stated that their wins have given him a lot of confidence that his turn is also around the corner and he will not have to wait too long for that elusive major.
