In a brief update at The Telegraph, James Corrigan reported that Graeme McDowell walked off TPC San Antonio today as a precaution given that the Masters begin in two weeks.
As we relayed earlier, G-Mac withdrew after only nine holes with a foot injury. Corrigan broadened the source of McDowell's pain to a "stress injury to his lower left leg." Given this setback, the major champion has scrapped plans of visiting Augusta National next week and plans to compete in next week's Shell Houston Open. He's played the Golf Club of Houston (former known as Redstone Golf Club's Tournament Course) twice in competition, but not since 2012 when he tied for 63rd place. Mar 26 - 5:57 PM

Graeme McDowell withdrew during his opening round of the Valero Texas Open due to a foot injury. UPDATE: Golf Channel reported later that the injury is in his left foot.

G-Mac started on the back side of TPC San Antonio and went out in birdie-free, 5-over-par 41 before calling it quits. He hit only four greens in regulation. This is just his second mid-tournament WD in 137 PGA TOUR starts. It drops him to 2-for-5 on the season. Despite a T3 at the WGC-HSBC Champions in the fall, he arrived at the VTO slotted 134th in the FedExCup standings.

Graeme McDowell will tee it up in the Valero Texas Open for the first time in his career.

He clearly needs to get something going soon, with the Masters just two weeks away. He went MC-T56-MC in The Honda Classic, WGC-Cadillac Championship and Arnold Palmer Invitational respectively. There is no real reason to make any fantasy investments in GMac at TPC San Antonio.
Mar 25 - 9:22 PM

Graeme McDowell completed 36 holes of The Honda Classic in 5-over-par 74-71=145 and missed the cut on the number.

G-Mac walked off with birdie at the par-5 18th in his second round, but that chased a double bogey at the par-3 17th where he splashed his tee ball. For the week, he split 19 (of 28) fairways, but hit only 19 greens in regulation. He squared seven bogeys and two doubles to erased an eagle and four birdies. This is his first missed cut anywhere since the 2014 Masters and first MC in a non-major since the 2013 Barclays. Other notables that missed the cut that we haven't already covered include: 145--Justin Rose; Zach Johnson; Harris English; Chris Kirk; Will MacKenzie ... 146--Keegan Bradley; Billy Horschel; Retief Goosen; Ernie Els ... 147--Justin Thomas; Freddie Jacobson; Tony Finau; Francesco Molinari; Ángel Cabrera ... 148--Shawn Stefani; Victor Dubuisson; Thomas Björn ... 149--Carlos Ortiz; Erik Compton ... 150--Graham DeLaet ... 153--Sang-moon Bae; Charl Schwartzel.

Joint first-round leader Graeme McDowell lost momentum on day two of the Maybank Malaysian Open and is now solo eighth after an error-ridden 1-over-par 35-38=73.

McDowell started the day tied at the top alongside Lee Westwood; he ended it six shots behind at 5-under 139. There wasn't too much wrong with his opening nine as he circled three birdies against two bogeys. But on the back he bogeyed the par-3 11th and followed it with a double bogey at the par-4 12th. He repaired some of the damage with a birdie at 17 but this was a disappointing day for the Northern Irishman. The stats tell the story; he found just 6-of-14 fairways, took 33 putts and was only 1-for-4 in scrambling.
Feb 6 - 8:22 AM

Graeme McDowell toured Kuala Lumpur G&CC in 6-under-par 33-33=66 to share the day one lead with defending champion and Ryder Cup colleague Lee Westwood.

Showing superb distance control with his irons, G-Mac gave himself numerous looks at birdie and converted seven of them. His only bogey of the day came at the par-4 sixth. The 2010 US Open champion had a run of six '3's on his card in seven holes on the back nine, four of them (at 12, 13, 16 and 17) going down as birdies. His other par breakers came at three, seven and nine. "I hit the ball great today, drove it well and gave myself a lot of looks for birdie," said the Northern Irishman. "Generally I’m very, very happy with that start. I’ve liked the way this golf course looks from the start."

Graeme McDowell authored a closing 2-under-par 33-37=70 to finish at 14-under 274 and claim a top 10 at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic in his first start of 2015.

The T9 must represent a pleasing opening to G-Mac's campaign although he did lose focus late on having moved into second place at one point during the final round. The former US Open champion climbed through the field with birdies at three, five, 10 and 13 before a bogey at 14. At the 16th, he looked set to walk off with an easy four but missed a short par putt and, inexplicably, lipped out a tiddler on the way back and carded a double bogey. He recovered to close his round with a six-foot birdie putt at 18. For the second day running he hit 14 greens in regulation. McDowell now continues on the European Tour and is due to play next week's Maybank Malaysian Open.
Feb 1 - 9:43 AM

Graeme McDowell rode a hot short game to card a 7-under-par 31-34=65 and surge into contention at the halfway mark of the Omega Dubai Desert Classic.

G-Mac's impressive morning lap of the Emirates lifted him to 12-under at the midpoint and that was just one behind leader Marc Warren. McDowell has hit 13 greens in regulation in both rounds so far but is 9-for-10 in scrambling and has used the putter just 50 times. He carded the first of Friday's eight birdies at his opening hole, the 10th, and crafted two more at 13 and 16. The surge came on his second nine as he circled four straight birdies from the second. A sole bogey of the day came at six but the 2010 US Open champion wiped it out with one final par breaker at the next.
Jan 30 - 5:33 AM

Graeme McDowell returns to the Emirates course to contest the Omega Dubai Desert Classic for the first time since 2010.

G-Mac had a decent record here before scratching it from his schedule. The former US Open champion was T20 in 2010, T24 in 2009 and fifth in 2008. If gamers want further clues as to how he might perform after a five-year absence, McDowell has twice finished third at the season-opening Abu Dhabi Championship (2011 and 2013) while he kicked off 2014 with a T7 at Pebble Beach.
Jan 27 - 5:06 PM

Graeme McDowell took home a share of the bronze in his only Fall Series start, reaching the holiday break ranked 39th in the FedExCup standings.

G-Mac finished in solo third last year at the WGC-HSBC Champions, so he takes a slight hit in total FEC points. A good result regardless and he now has nine top 10s in his last 18 PGA TOUR events. A 50-percent top-10 ratio is remarkable, and gamers should pay top dollar whenever McDowell chooses to tee it up this season.

Overnight leader Graeme McDowell had nothing in his final round of the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions, posting a 1-over-par 36-37=73 to reach 10-under 278 and check up in a three-way tie for third place.

Threes are wild at Sheshan International Golf Club for McDowell. He finished alone in third place there in 2011 and 2013. Today's reality may be the most bitter to accept, however. Not only was he gunning for a wire-to-wire win, but he played his last 26 holes in 2-over with just one birdie. McDowell led the field with only six bogeys (and nothing worse), but he squared half of them on par 5s.

Overnight leader Graeme McDowell opened the door with a 1-under-par 35-36=71 in his third round of the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions to post 11-under 205, good for a one-stroke lead over Hiroshi Iwata.

This wasn't G-Mac's best effort. While he split 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation, he buried only three birdies and stumbled to two bogeys. He played the quartet of par 5s in birdie-free 1-over. Nevertheless, he's in the catbird's seat at Sheshan International Golf Club with 18 holes to play. McDowell will be gunning for an outright wire-to-wire title and his third win on the PGA TOUR.

Overnight leader Graeme McDowell answered his opening 67 at the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions with another in today's second round and posted 10-under 134, good for the overnight 36-hole lead.

G-Mac's card today featured respective nines of 33 and 34. Best of all, it contained no squares. In addition to going bogey-free, he ripped off five birdies, three of which on par 5s, to seemingly coast into the weekend. While scoring is markedly higher this year, the Ulsterman is only two strokes off Dustin Johnson's pace at the same time last year. DJ then closed with a pair of 66s. We can't expect the same this week, but McDowell is showing no signs of easing off the throttle.

Graeme McDowell posted a 5-under-par 31-36=67 in his opening round of the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions, good for sole possession of the clubhouse lead.

Scoring is way up at Sheshan International Golf Club today. A year ago, Rory McIlroy held the 18-hole lead with a 65 and winner Dustin Johnson established the tournament record at 24-under 264. McDowell cruised out to bogey-free 7-under through 12 holes. He circled seven birdies. However, he bogeyed the par-3 fourth hole and the par-5 eighth coming in to give the field a fighting chance. Despite the challenge, G-Mac's score falls in line with his average during his pair of third-place finishes in the last two editions of the tournament. In 2011 and 2014, he averaged 67.5 over those eight rounds.

Graeme McDowell split a piece of 16th place at last week's BMW Masters and will take a shot at Sheshan International at this week's World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions.

McDowell enters the week with top 40s in 10 of his last 11 stroke-play events, worldwide. Adding fuel to the fire, G-Mac has top 10s in four of the last five WGC stroke-play events, including a third-place finish at last year's WGC-HSBC. It was the second bronze-medal finish for the Ulsterman at Sheshan International, with the previous coming in 2011. Course history converges with steady form to make McDowell a formidable option in any format this week.
