PGA Golfer Luke Donald and his wife, Diane, sold their 11,000-square-foot north suburban mansion.

The one-time PGA Player of the Year and graduate of Northwestern University sold the six-bedroom at 8 South Bristol Road for $3.9 million, according to the Chicago Tribune.

The couple bought the home in 2008 for $3.7 million, and first listed it in July for $4.5 million.

Lindy Goss of Baird & Warner had the listing. The buyer was not identified.

The Donalds still own another mansion, an eight-bedroom, 12,000-square-foot home in the exclusive Bear’s Club development in Jupiter, Florida where their neighbors include Michael Jordan and fellow golfer Michelle Wie, according to the Tribune.
