Lake Buena Vista, FL (Sports Network) - Luke Donald will not be on hand to
defend his title next week at the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Classic

will cause Donald to miss the tournament.
Since he is skipping the event, Donald has pledged a significant donation to
Lurie Children's Hospital in Chicago, which is a Children's Miracle Network
The former world No. 1 birdied the first six holes of the back nine in the
final round last year to rally and win the title. The win also gave Donald the
PGA Tour money title, and when he later topped the European Tour Order of
Merit, Donald became the first player to top both lists in the same season.
