Donald or Kaymer Could Be No. 1 with Win at Volvo Match Play

Earlier this year, Martin Kaymer grabbed the World No. 1 ranking after losing to Luke Donald in the finals of the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship. Kaymer has since given the top ranking back to Lee Westwood, but Kaymer or Donald could claim the top spot with more match play success at this week’s Volvo Match Play Championship in Spain.

The European Tour’s match play event is more like the World Cup than the WGC’s one-and-done March Madness-style bracket. The Volvo field is smaller, 24 golfers instead of 64, and opens with two round robin matches that cut the field to 16 before entering a single-elimination knockout stage over the final two days. Westwood is also playing in Spain.

Donald has been on quite a run this year, finishing in the top 10 in 13 of his last 14 events as he has risen to No. 2 in the world rankings. A large part of that he says, has been building on his match play success. “My confidence is very high right now,” Donald said. “I’ve been playing very consistently now for a good six months and I think the win at the Match Play really elevated that confidence level.”

Playing on his home soil, Miguel Angel Jimenez was the first golfer to win at the Volvo Match Play, making quick work of Charl Schwartzel 6&5.
