U.S. Open: Donald focused on winning, not ranking
Golf » Heading into 10th U.S. Open, Donald has yet to win a major.

"I think in U.S. Opens, usually success comes from hitting a lot of fairways and hitting a lot of greens. And I think my game is more from the hole backward," he said. "I’ve always kind of worked that way. This year I’ve made a little bit more of a conscious effort to try and change that, to get a little bit more control, to work some things around, spending a little bit more time on the range working on really solidifying a few things. And it hasn’t happened yet, but statistics will show I’ve improved in those areas."

Donald and Lee Westwood are the only players to be No. 1 without having won a major. Donald was No. 1 entering the 2011 U.S. Open and held it going into the 2012 PGA Championship. He lost the ranking after Rory McIlroy won last year’s PGA title.

Regarded as a mild-mannered Englishman, Donald is ready to show some ruthlessness at Merion as he chases that elusive win.

"It has a lot of tradition, this course, and I’m excited to see what it has to offer," he said.
