Biography

The Welshman enjoyed a standout 2014, with his consistent performances and victory in the D+D REAL Czech Masters being rewarded with a place in Paul McGinley’s victorious European Ryder Cup team. Once at Gleneagles, Donaldson showed the golfing world just what he is made of with some stellar performances over the first two days of the match play event, before sealing Europe’s third consecutive win with victory over Keegan Bradley in Sunday’s singles. Continued to perform well after his Ryder Cup heroics to finish fourth in the 2014 Race to Dubai standings. Earlier on in the season he enjoyed a fine week at the WGC - Cadillac Championship in Florida, where he finished second alongside Bubba Watson. Landed the biggest win of his career at the 2013 Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship, holding off Justin Rose and Thorbjørn Olesen to win by one, before eventually finishing fifth in The Race to Dubai. His Abu Dhabi triumph came only six months after he broke his European Tour duck with victory in the 2012 Irish Open, where amid scenes reminiscent of a Major Championship, he fired a stunning 66 to win by four at Royal Portrush. Progressed from the Challenge Tour in 2001 via second place in the Rankings and enjoyed a promising rookie season, keeping his card in 90th place. Helped Great Britain and Ireland to second spot in the Eisenhower Trophy in 2000, and showed an affinity for the team format in the professional arena too, representing Great Britain and Ireland in the Seve Trophy in 2011 and 2013.
