Former world No.1 Luke Donald has said that missing this year’s Masters has made his ‘blood boil’ – but has vowed to return to Augusta National next year.


It’s the first time since 2004 that the Englishman won’t be teeing it up in Georgia, largely down to poor form in recent seasons which has seen him drop down No.95 in the world – his lowest ranking since that same year.

In a lengthy Instagram post, Donald said: “I will miss you Augusta & quite frankly it makes my blood boil, but life doesn't always work out the way you want it to, you are going to have some disappointments along the way and get knocked down a few times - and that's ok because every time you get up you are stronger for it.


“Not playing this week just makes the fires inside of me burn a little stronger. There is only one way I know how to go on and that's to keep working and #keepgettingbetter. I will see you next year Augusta.

Donald made his Masters debut in 2005 with a third-placed finish and has recorded two other top tens since – T10 in 2007 and T4 in 2011. But the 38-year-old, who hasn’t won on the PGA Tour or European Tour since May 2012, missed the cut in his previous two starts.
