Luke Donald is the number-1 golfer in the world and also the PGA Tour in 2011.

But now, he is also the year’s number-1 money winner after winning the Children’s Miracle Network Classic in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.

Donald had to rally big-time to win the tournament. He ran off six straight birdies on the back nine to comeback from five shots off the lead, to finish at 8-under-par 64 and 17-under for the week.

Coming into the tourney, Donald was trailing Webb Simpson by $363,029 in the top money column.

Donald is also on pace to become the first golfer to win the money title on both the PGA and PGA European tours in the same season. His lead in Europe is more than $1.8 million over Rory McIlroy with five tournaments left in 2011.

Rory McIlroy is looking unbeatable at the U.S. Open in Bethesda, Maryland.

The 22-year-old is going after the record books and doesn’t realize it ; he’s just playing golf.

The native of Northern Ireland became the first player in the 111-year history of the U.S. Open to reach 13 under par. Despite a double bogey into the water on the 18th hole, his 5-under-66 was good enough to set the 36-hole scoring record at 131.

At 11 under par, he has a six-shot lead over former PGA championship winner Y.E. Yang (69), matching the U.S. Open record set by Tiger Woods in 2000 at Pebble Beach for the largest margin after two rounds of play.

Rory McIlroy has his name at the top of the leaderboard at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Maryland.

McIlroy got past the first of four rounds of tough tests in the U.S. Open with a 6-under-par 65 to build the biggest 18-hole lead in 35 years.

The 22-year-old from Northern Ireland missed only one green. Of the 156-man field, McIlroy was the only golfer without a bogey.

McIlroy was three shots ahead of former PGA champion Y.E. Yang and Charl Schwartzel. who won the Masters back in April.

The Irishman became the 10th player to start off the U.S. Open with a 65, and only two went on to win – Jack Nicklaus at Baltusrol in 1980 and Tiger Woods in 2000 Pebble Beach.
