Luke Campbell Donald (born 7 December 1977) is an English professional golfer who is the current World Number One. He plays mainly on the U.S. based PGA Tour but, is also a member of the European Tour. In 2006 he reached the top ten in the Official World Golf Rankings for the first time in his career. In January 2007, he was briefly the highest ranked European golfer. In May 2011 Donald became number one in the World Rankings after winning the BMW PGA Championship. He has spent over 100 weeks in the top-10.

Although his father is from Stranraer in southwest Scotland, Luke Donald was born in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire. He has described himself as "half Scottish". Luke Donald and his brother Christian played junior golf at Hazlemere and Beaconsfield Golf Clubs. Christian caddied for Luke. Luke was the club champion of Beaconsfield twice, winning the championship first at the age of 15. He attended the Rudolf Steiner School in Kings Langley (www.rsskl.org) and later the Royal Grammar School, High Wycombe.

Coming from England, he joined College Prospects of America, a service also employed by golfer Martin Laird, which created a résumé for him and sent it to all the major colleges and universities in the United States. Several coaches responded, including Wally Goodwin at Stanford University. Goodwin recruited Donald to join his golf squad, but Donald was not admitted to the university.
