England’s Luke Donald returned as world no 1 in golf ranking after winning the PGA Championship title at Wentworth.

The Englishman finished on 15-under par and won by four shots against Scotland’s Paul Lawrie and Justin Rose from England.

According to Sport 24,it is the fourth time Donald has topped global rankings.

Donald has become the third player to win back-to-back PGA titles following the footsteps of Sir Nick Faldo (1980-1981) and Colin Montgomerie,who won three times from 1998 and this was the fourth English win in a row here after Paul Casey,Simon Khan and Donald’s first victory last year.

Rose got level with Donald with back-to-back birdies at the third and fourth,whilst Donald dropped a shot at the fourth.

However,Donald responded by holing putts of 15 and 18 feet at the sixth and seventh to go clear again.
