    then there are those who think he lacks the cold eyed killer instinct required to close out tournaments Whatever the reasons after over a decade at the top Donald is used to being on the inside looking out but his current ranking will soon put him in the unenviable position of being one of those on the outside looking in especially when it comes to the top events Paul McGinley s decision to leave him out of the 2014 Ryder Cup team only served to give credence to the view that Donald is now considered one of yesterday s men The captain s decision to go with fellow Englishmen Ian Poulter and Lee Westwood clearly hurt Donald but he was magnanimous in defeat and publicly admitted that he hadn t given McGinley enough reasons to pick him over his rivals for selection Like many players before him Donald s first move towards reviving his fortunes involved switching coaches At the end of 2013 he ended his 16 year relationship with Pat Goss and sought to replace him with Tiger Woods s ex coach Sean Foley However Donald found himself at the back of a very long queue for his services and instead he turned to Chuck Cook a well respected Texan coach who counted recent US PGA champion Jason Dufner among his clientele A major reworking of his swing failed to bring about the necessary results and less than 18 months later Donald went on bended knee back to Goss with the pair continuing to work together to find a way back into the major league Another casualty of the Donald slump has been long time caddy John McLaren who in a rare reversal of sackings decided in October to end a six year partnership that had yielded 18 million in prize money and a personal income of over 2 million McLaren who is now caddying for Paul Casey kept the precise reasons for the break up to himself but admitted that the partnership had run its course McLaren s temporary replacement at the British Masters in October was Englishman Dean Elliot while Mick Doran another English caddie was at Donald s side at the Sony Open in Hawaii and last month s CareerBuilder Challenge in Palm Springs but after that the relationship is up in the air Coaches and caddies aside Donald has also been working on improving his mental approach to the game and last year started seeing renowned sports psychologist Dr Michael Gervais who works with numerous top athletes and sports teams including the Seattle Seahawks Dr Gervais also came to prominence when helping Austrian skydiver Felix Baumgartner overcome his fear of claustrophobia when enduring his record breaking 24 mile dive in a spacesuit from the stratosphere Although in a freefall of his own Donald s problem was rather more straightforward He just reminded me that it s up to me what mood or mindset I m in Donald says When you re in a slump it

    out for a round Psychologically he felt it was better that way These days he ll hit 20 balls over the 150 yard marker and say What do we do now I don t know Colin Montgomerie but I think he s like him He s definitely not a Nick Faldo Practice is just not his thing After plenty of success at club and county level Brooks turned professional in 2007 aged 20 and started out life on the Jamega Tour the bottom rung of the professional ranks where pros commonly play for a first prize of less than 2 000 Finding the paid ranks to his liking he soon progressed to the EuroPro Tour where he plugged away for three years finally bagging his first professional win at Bovey Castle in 2009 and earning promotion to the Challenge Tour in 2010 He spent three seasons slogging around Europe s second tier tour which yielded half a dozen top 10s but no wins before his consistency was rewarded with an elevation to the European Tour ranks after he finished 21st in the money list in 2012 With limited starts he was unable to make much of an impact on the European Tour in 2013 and was left to gut it out over six rounds at Qualifying School in Spain at the end the season where he clung on bravely to finish 19th and win back his card for 2014 A debut victory wasn t long in coming however with Brooks beating Scott Henry in a play off to capture the rain shortened Madeira Islands Open in May While a win in what was only his ninth European Tour event was extremely welcome the tournament itself was overshadowed by the death of Alastair Forsyth s caddy Iain MacGregor mid way through the final round The incident MacGregor suffered a fatal heart attack resulted in several players walking off the course when they heard the news while the majority of players following advice from tour officials carried on after a brief suspension of play The ensuing backlash on Twitter and in the mainstream media made for some rather unpleasant reading with many accusing the European Tour of putting commercial gain ahead of human decency Brooks for his part found himself in the awkward position of having to inwardly celebrate his own personal triumph while outwardly acknowledging that this was one of those times when there are more important things in life than golf It was great to get the win but it wasn t nice to do it in those circumstances he says It was horrible what happened out there and my condolences went out to all of Iain s family It wasn t my decision whether the tournament was cancelled or not and once they had made the decision to carry on I felt it was the right thing to do The win in Madeira only came with a one year exemption and 75 000 in prize money so while Brooks

    been able to tick off that list but on the golf side the only thing I was able to tick off was winning the Race to Dubai Obviously I wanted to win more majors and I wanted to improve in certain areas of my game and I didn t quite do that but these things happen You have to set yourself lofty goals to try and get better You seem to be have been frustrated with your putting for a large part of the season Is that a fair assessment Yeah I feel that I ve come off the course frustrated a lot of times this year because I really feel like I could have putted better But it seems like the more pressure I m under or the more it means the better I putt which is a nice thing to have But overall I feel like my putting has been gradually progressing throughout these last few weeks and I know if I putt like this regularly this is what can happen because all the other elements of my game are in good shape Some commentators have referred to you as a streaky putter How would you characterise yourself as a putter Putting is a very important part of the game we often take more putts than we do full shots during a round But I feel I m a good putter I feel like I hole out well I definitely hole out much better than I used to And when I get my eye in I m really good I do hole a lot of putts But I don t get my eye in as much as I d like to So I ll always be something of a streaky putter I feel like everyone has strengths of their game and I know what my strengths are and it s just about trying to make your weaknesses that little bit better each year If you re hitting ten to 12 fairways a round 14 to 16 greens a round you re always going to give yourself plenty of chances If you have a couple of good days at a tournament where a few putts go in that can suddenly be a couple of seven or eight under rounds and that s really all you need You look very happy when you talk about putting your clubs away for Christmas But for how long will you really put them away My next tournament is eight or nine weeks away so it ll be the longest self imposed break I ve had away from the game I want to use the time to try and get healthy and get stronger again because I haven t been able to do as much in the gym as I would have liked over the past few months so I really want to concentrate on that I ve pretty much got a two month period where I don t have to play golf I

    nine the last three holes in contention of a golf tournament said the winner who moved to 13th in the world rankings with the win You can t pay for that experience you ve got to earn it With all the permutations that were going on as we were coming down the last it s very nice to know that I can dig deep and produce what I can when it is needed the most I d love to win by five or six every time but when you win in that fashion it feels that little bit extra special It means when the pressure is on I can produce the goods Further down the leaderboard Korea s Byeong Hun An and Spain s Alvaro Quiros both had final rounds of 65 to leap into a tie for fourth while Rory McIlroy matched that score for a share of sixth although it is no exaggeration to say that he briefly threatened to reel in Willett before falling short over the closing holes McIlroy said It s a week of what could have been There was a lot of really good golf in there I played a lot of great shots and made a lot of birdies but just made a few too many mistakes as well I ll rue the two front nines that I played on Friday and Saturday I played the combined front nine five over par there and if I had not done that things could have been different But I m encouraged with the good golf that I ve played It s been good because I know what I need to work on over the next few weeks I m taking the positives from it but obviously it could have been better Stay up to date
