World number one Luke Donald believes his performance at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational has set him up perfectly for the 93rd USPGA Championship.
The Englishman shot a final-round 66 to finish on 13-under-par in a tie for second with American Rickie Fowler.
“It was a good week, a lot of positives out of this week,” he said.
“Three out of four days I really felt like I gave a lot away on the greens, but I had some good opportunities this week.”
“It’s probably one of the best ball-striking weeks I’ve had for a while – just disappointing I didn’t make a couple more putts and give Scottie a good run.” he added after finishing four shots behind Australian Adam Scott.
With three tour victories this year, Donald is looking to end the season on a high by winning his first Major title at the Atlanta Athletic Club in Georgia.
“I didn’t putt great the first two days, played very nicely yesterday and played very well today.”
Confident of a change in fortune on the greens, Donald added: “I’ve always felt like I’m a good putter, and those things will come around, I’ve just got to keep being patient and keep giving myself opportunities. That’s all I can do.”
