Luke Donald is close to topping the European and United States money lists after disappointment in the US PGA Championship.

Luke Donald sets his sights on topping the European and United States money lists after failing to clinch his first major title at the US PGA Championship.

The world number one, who finished the tournament in Atlanta four under par, has admitted that he would be delighted to top both money lists.

"It's certainly a goal," said Donald, according to Sky Sports News. "That would be a great accomplishment. To be the first would be very special."

The 33-year-old admitted that he was frustrated at failing to capitalise on his advantage at the US PGA Championship after Keegan Bradley claimed victory in a play-off with Jason Dufner.

"I thought I had to press a little bit hard and obviously I hit a poor shot," he added. “I just didn't strike it well enough.

"It's a missed opportunity again. The positives I see are that I didn't have my best week this week and I still came reasonably close.

"I know I've got the game to compete and win majors, but, again, it's bittersweet - it's another major gone, another year gone without winning a major.

"I'm moving in the right way, though. I just need that week where everything falls in place."

Donald finished joint eighth in Atlanta alongside fellow Englishman Lee Westwood.
