The Englishman is third favourite with most bookmakers to reclaim the coveted prize he won in consecutive years from 2011.
Speaking prior to the pre-tournament pro-am, he said: "It's kind of like our fifth major on the European tour, similar to the Players Championship in the US.
"This is obviously one you want to win and one you want to have on your CV. It has some great memories for me, when I won it in 2011 I went to No 1 in the world, so that is something I'll always remember.
"This is a tournament I grew ups as a kid watching and I always wanted to hoist that trophy above my head, and fortunately I've been able to do it a couple of times.
"It would be nice to do it a third, and hopefully this year."
Meanwhile, Donald has empathy with Ryder Cup team-mate Rory McIlroy after the Irishman revealed he had split with fiancee Caroline Wozniacki.
"We all know how hard this game is when you have a clear mind," he said. "I can't imagine what's going through his mind now.
"Obviously that's the first I've heard of it and I'm as surprised and shocked as I'm sure you guys are.
"Any time you have personal issues clouding your mind and you're trying to play golf, it becomes very difficult.
"Sometimes being on the golf course can be a little bit of a break away from that, but most of the time it's very hard to separate those two things. Obviously I wish both of them the best."
