Luke Donald - (England) The Barclays Scottish Open Castle Stuart - Inverness - Scotland - 7th to 19th July, 2011 Luke Donald's glorious 2011 continued as he made the Barclays Scottish Open his third title of this year. The World number one, who won the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play in February then added The European Tour's flagship BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth Club in May, closing with a flawless 63. The 33 year old's nine under par round secured a 19 under par total at the spectacular Castle Stuart Golf Links to run out a four shot winner from Swede Fredrik Andersson Hed, who signed for a best of the week 62. Donald stretched his lead at the top of the World Golf Ranking to the extent that only Lee Westwood could overtake him for the top spot at the 140th Open Championship and then Westwood must finish second alone or better, to have a chance to do succeed.
