Meet Luke Donald's wife and Chicago native Diane Antonopoulos in this piece.

Who Is Luke Donald's Wife?

Aside from winning a Major title, Luke Donald has achieved everything there is to do in the game of golf. Chief among which is getting to the world number one spot which he did in 2011.

At the start of the year he missed the cut at the Northern Trust but he then went on a run that boggles the mind - 1 - T10 - T6 - T4 - 2 - T8 - T4 - 2 - 1. This run got him to world number one and he then won the Barclays Scottish Open for good measure.

Donald clearly had a lot of highs in his career but also a lot of lows largely due to injury and there is one part of his life that has remained consistent, the support form his wife Diane. Who is she you ask? Below we have taken a look.

The pair met whilst at Northwestern University in Illinois, the home state of Chicago-native Diane. There, Diane studied psychology whereas Donald studied art.

She is Greek-born with her maiden name being Antonopoulos and they got married on the island of Santorini in Greece, which is where Diane's family is from, 11 years ago.

Donald held the honour of being the worlds best golfer for a total of 56 weeks as he battled with Rory McIlroy. As mentioned above the only thing missing from his large resume is a Major title and given he is only 41 years old, who knows, maybe he could finally get the monkey off his back.

A golfer for most of his life, Sam started playing the game to prove he was the best player out of his father and two brothers.
He quickly became a golf equipment expert and has always been the one family and friends come to for buying advice, and spends a lot of his time putting golf gear, apparel and shoes to the test.  
He is a graduate of Swansea University where he studied History and American Studies, and he has been a part of the Golf Monthly team since February 2018. He also previously worked for World Soccer and Rugby World magazines.
