Luke Donald played himself into form ahead of the US Open as he hit 13 birdies in two rounds at the Memorial Tournament.

Donald recorded six birdies in the third round and seven on the last one on a challenging layout, which posed many problems for all players during the week.

Donald ended the tournament in tied 21st as he finished on Sunday on one under par. 

The US Open starts on June 13 at the Merion Golf Club in Ardmore and even though Donald is yet to win an event this year, he is happy with his game.

The 35-year-old told Reuters: "I made a lot of birdies in the last two rounds, my game is coming around.

"Just a few too many mistakes so I've got to tidy up my control with the irons, keep hitting greens. I feel like I am putting better now.

"I am excited about where my game is heading. I certainly feel this year my play has been better than my scores and in previous years it has almost been the opposite. I have generally scored really well through a great short game.

"That's why I have never been too worried about some of my form this year because I feel as a player that I am hitting it pretty well. I'm just waiting for some things to happen, kind of fall into place."

So far in 2013, Donald has recorded two top-10 finishes in seven starts on the PGA Tour. His best finish was in April as he tied for third at the RBC Heritage.

On the European Tour, where he has won seven titles during his career, he has missed the cut twice.

These came at March's Malaysian Open and also at the flagship BMW PGA Championship last month.
