Luke Donald holes out for eagle at Wells Fargo Championship, celebrates with fans in the rain
POTOMAC, Md. — Luke Donald is a player for the people.
Despite consistent rains all morning during the second round of the 2022 Wells Fargo Championship, the former World No. 1 had a gallery following him on Friday at TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm.
After making birdie on the par-3 12th, Donald’s drive on the par-4 13th went just right of the cart path, well off the fairway. No matter, as the 44-year-old Englishman landed his approach from the thick, wet rough on the green and watched his ball roll along the contours and into the bottom of the cup.
How did he celebrate? By high-fiving and celebrating with the loyal fans who braved the elements to follow along.
