PGA Tour Money Title Still up for Grabs

Luke Donald is trying to become the first player to win the money title on both the PGA Tour and the European Tour in the same year.

He currently leads the European money list by €1,312,823 over Rory McIlroy, pretty much assuring himself of that title in 2011.

However, on the PGA Tour money list, the world's No. 1 player has a much slimmer lead over Webb Simpson.

Donald has just a $68,971 margin over Simpson, who plans to tee it up this week at the McGladrey Classic in Sea Island, Georgia. An event Donald is not playing in.

Thomas Parker, Simpson's agent said recently his client intended to play in the Sea Island event. Then decide after that tournament if he will go to Orlando to play in the season's last event at Disney.

Simpson could seemingly take the money title away from Donald with a strong finish at Sea Island or in Disney.

Donald, who of course has the chance to play in both events as well will most likely not be at either event to try and fend off Simpson's late season charge at the money title.

He and his wife Diane are expecting their second child in the near future and I am sure travel is just not in the cards at the moment.

Besides, he already has the European money title all but wrapped up and he is the World's No. 1 golfer at the moment. He can't have expect everything, can he?
