Luke Donald rallies to win Disney and finish No. 1 across the board

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - Already No. 1 in the world, Luke Donald left little doubt who was No. 1 on the PGA Tour.

Donald ran off six straight birdies on the back nine Sunday at Disney and closed with an 8-under 64 to come from five shots behind and win the Children's Miracle Network Classic.

The win also gave Donald the PGA Tour money title, keeping alive his bid to become the first player to lead the money list on the PGA and European tours in the same year. He also won the Vardon Trophy for the lowest scoring average, and with his second win of the year, becomes a big favourite as PGA Tour player of the year.

Donald is the first player since 1996 to win the money title on the final day.

David Hearn of Branford, Ont., finished tied for 20th with a final-round 71.
