DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES (AP) - Top-rank Luke Donald looks to make history by winning both money titles, and says it would rank as one of his greatest achievements.

It would also be a chance to thank his late father Colin, who introduced the 34-year-old Donald to the game. Donald’s father died last month just days before the birth of Donald’s second daughter.

Donald’s already won the American money title. He’s in a duel with No. 2-ranked Rory McIlroy for the European money title. He’d be the first golfer to win both titles in a season.

McIlroy trails Donald by just under $1 million. He must win the Dubai World Championship, which starts Thursday, and Donald would have to finish outside the top nine for McIlroy to win the title.
