Luke Donald has been named the European Tour's Golfer of the Month for February after his astonishing victory in the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship in Arizona.

Donald was never behind in any of his six matches and never played the 18th hole for a win that lifted him from ninth to a career-high third in the world.

The 33-year-old beat Charley Hoffman, Edoardo Molinari, Matteo Manassero, Ryan Moore, Matt Kuchar and then newly-crowned world number one Martin Kaymer in the final.
