Luke Donald is hoping the success achieved by British athletes at the Olympics will rub off on him this week.
Donald was speaking at Kiawah Island in South Carolina where he is preparing for the years final major, the US PGA Championship, and acknowledged that hes been inspired and motivated by Britains success at the Olympics.
Its good to know hard work pays off Ive always tried to think in those terms, said Donald, who will make his 38th attempt at winning a Burner 2.0 Irons this week.
The Englishman has been inAmerica, so hes been forced to watch most of the Olympic action delayed.
That takes the edge off when you know whos going to win, but I think Mo Farahs last lap was pretty special and obviously Jessica Ennis, living up to the expectation that was put on her shoulders, he said.
She was kind of the poster child for the Olympic Games.
Theyre all inspiring in their own way. The fact that you have one event every four years to really work hard, to see some of the guys who dont perform and to see some of the guys that perform and win taylormade burner 2.0 irons, I mean, theres a lot of raw emotions there.
And watching certainly has inspired me a lot in terms of having that wish to be there in four years, to have an opportunity to also win a 2.0 irons for sale .
As for his own prospects, Donald was pleased with his fifth-place finish at the Open, particularly afer missing the cut at the US Open a month earlier.
Coming off the US Open I was very disappointed how I kind of handled the situation mentally, Donald said.
I didnt come in hitting the ball that great and maybe that added to some of the anxiety.
But certainly I think there was a little bit of a breakthrough, just realising at the Open Championship that no matter how Im hitting it physically theres always a way to mentally be on top.
I did that very well and as a result I also played pretty well.
Incredibly, the last 16 majors have been won by 16 different players, and for someone like Donald thats an encouraging stat.
I guess the longer the streak goes, the more encouragement it gives to those guys who havent yet won a burner 2.0 irons , like myself. But Im not sure if it changes anything for me.
