Winning still the goal for Donald in PGA playoffs


World No. 1 Luke Donald figures that winning is the main thing at this week’s US PGA playoff event, even if he might be able to gain ground on the points leaders without taking the title. A field of 99 will tee off Friday in the opening round of the $8 million Deutsche Bank Championship, the second playoff event in the run to the US PGA’s season-ending Tour Championship.
Only the top 70 in the points race after Monday’s final round on the US Labour Day holiday will advance to the next event, the BMW Championship in two weeks at Cog Hill. “The goal is to win,” Donald said.
