Root for Luke to stay at #1 because you hit your driver about as far as he does.  Mr. Consistency does it with iron play and short game – not with Popeye forearms or a contortionist-like shoulder turn.

Root for Luke because he couldn’t get into Stanford.  Although he was recruited by their golf coach, he was not admitted to the University (Tiger’s Alma mater).  He attended Northwestern and was the NCAA Champ in 1999 thrashing Tiger Wood’s scoring record.

Root for Luke because he doesn’t showboat.  Luke smiles and tips his hat.

Root for Luke because of his classic “old school” swing.  His stylish swing is reminiscent of Tommy Bolt, Gene Littler, Don January and Tom Weiskopf.

Root for Luke because his family gives him perspective and keeps him grounded.  He married his college sweetheart, Diane, and last year they had a baby girl, Elle Georgina.

Root for Luke because he is engaging with his fans.  Luke is outstanding with galleries no matter how he is playing that day.

Root for Luke because he has his own wine.  The Luke Donald Collection is a Napa Valley Bordeaux-style blend.

Root for Luke because he is accessible.  Luke publishes an online diary.  On his incredible chip-in on the 72nd hole of the 2011 Masters, …… the course isn’t going to beat me. I’m going to try to chip this in and get my revenge. It was pretty cool when it went in. It got me really stirred up. For the record, it was my 60 degree wedge.”

Root for Luke because he weighs 160 pounds soaking wet.  When he enters a bunker he looks like a kid playing in a sandbox, but he is arguably the best bunker player to ever play the game.

Root for Luke because even at #1 he is still the underdog.  If you were ever picked last for a game of kickball, or dumped for a football player – for the love of Rocky Balboa, The 1980 US Hockey team, and Rudy – root for Luke Donald.
