Donald insists course is too easy
While Donald, Paul Casey, Nick Dougherty and Andrew McLardy took the greatest advantage of conditions made soft by heavy overnight rain, the Ryder Cup player wondered if moving up three tees on a day when the weather forecast was decent and preferred lies were in operation was the right call.
"I don't think you would have seen that in America," observed Donald, a member of both the PGA Tour and the European Tour. "I think on the whole people are excited by the changes [at Wentworth] and it was going to be a tough test. A few times they negated that by putting the tees up. The Tour were cautious in the way they set it up. There weren't too many holes where the changes made a difference."
Donald's concern about the minimising of the challenge was motivated by the knowledge that no European has won a major since Paul Lawrie in 1999 and three of the four majors are held in America each year.
"The courses in Europe are generally more generous off the tee and the rough isn't as thick," he went on. "You can shortside yourself here and get away with par - but you're not going to do that at the US Open. I think that's why we haven't been very successful in majors."
