Luke Donald will Tee it up at Disney

With the quick and impressive start at the McGladrey Classic by Webb Simpson, it seems that is all it took for Luke Donald to decide to add the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Classic at Disney next week to his schedule.

Heading into this week's event, Simpson trailed Donald by only $68,971 to take over the money title lead for 2011.

The two-time winner and FedEx Cup Playoff runner-up has started out hot at Sea Island this week and is all but certain to overtake Donald's reign atop the PGA Tour Money List with either a win or a high finish.

Simpson, with a win at Sea Island, stands to go up some $700,000 over Donald for the title.

If Donald is to win the money title with that scenario, he will need to not only play well at Disney, but most likely win the event out right to win the 2011 Money Title.

Donald made the decision to add the Disney event today [Friday] after tweeting this about his choice. "There was never really a decision to be made. I have a chance of making history. See you all at Disney next week."

So, it looks as though the PGA Tour Money Title will come down to the final event of the season. Something that has not happened since 2003.

Of course, Simpson does have the option to commit to play Disney after the Sea Island event as well. The 2011 PGA Tour season could have a very interesting finish.
