Luke Donald shone in Europe yet again on Saturday – but still has no plans to start playing more on this side of the Atlantic.

Luke Donald shone in Europe yet again on Saturday – but still has no plans to start playing more on this side of the Atlantic.
A third-round 67 in the Alstom French Open at Le Golf National near Paris gives Donald a chance to continue a run which has seen him finish second, first and third in his last three starts on European soil.
With 18 holes to play the world number seven, taking another step towards regaining the Ryder Cup place he lost through injury two years ago, is seven under par, just two shots adrift of leader Martin Kaymer.
Donald out-scored playing partner Rory McIlroy by two, finishing in style with a 210-yard three-iron over the water to 15 feet.
Making the birdie putt completed an inward 31 and, having lowered his score each day, he said: “I’m moving in the right direction.
“I do enjoy coming over, but it would be a pretty big upheaval to play more in Europe.
“We have a baby, our home is in America and to spend more time here would be tough. I want to play against the best and most of the time the PGA Tour has stronger fields.
“I want to challenge myself as much as I can.”
