GOLF CHANNEL’S BRANDEL CHAMBLEE GIVES HIS TAKE: Luke Donald led the world money list in 2010 and broke a four-year winless drought with a victory at the Madrid Masters. In addition, he finished in the top three five times on the PGA Tour, mostly on the strength of a phenomenal short game. His elegant swing belies inconsistent ballstriking, but on fairways where the ball sets up like at Riviera or Congressional, he will be a threat.
