Graeme McDowell departs Royal Liverpool with a final-round 5-under-par 34-33=67 at The Open Championship to end his week at 10-under 278.
McDowell spread three birdies, a bogey and a double bogey across his first 13 holes at Hoylake, but caught fire at the finish. He followed birdies on 14, 15 and 16 up with an eagle at the par-5 18th. He improved his score every day, backing up an opening-round 74 with a 69, 68 and a 67. While it won't be good enough for a Claret Jug, he is in the mix for a top 10. Jul 20 - 12:38 PM

Graeme McDowell lit up Royal Liverpool for a 4-under-par 36-32=68 in the third round of The Open Championship to join Darren Clarke in the clubhouse lead at 5-under 211.

The Ulsterman was an afterthought after squaring two bogeys and circling just one birdie on his outward nine at Hoylake, but caught fire on the back. It started with a birdie at the par-5 10th, and the momentum continued wit birdies at 11, 14, 15 and 18. He was a logical pick for daily gamers on Saturday with bad weather expected. While the storms didn't materialize, he still delivered for those that called his number.

Graeme McDowell successfully defended his title at the Alstom Open de France at Le Golf National in Paris.

G-Mac began the finale eight strokes back of Kevin Stadler, who was poised for the wire-to-wire victory. Instead, the American blew up for a 5-over-par 41-35=76 to settle for a share of runner-up honors with Thailand's Thongchai Jaidee. McDowell, who played in the fifth-to-last pairing, closed with a 4-under 34-33=67 that included a bogey-5 at the 72nd hole. He posted 5-under 279. Stadler stood over a par putt inside the leather at the last to force a playoff, but he clunked it by. It's the Ulsterman's 10th European Tour title. He's now officially exempt into the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.
Jul 6 - 11:18 AM

Graeme McDowell posted 2-under-par 34-34=68 in his opening round of the 114th U.S. Open, good for a share of the clubhouse lead.

He hasn't been playing great golf relatively speaking of late, and he's likely distracted by the imminent birth of his first child (due in August), but the 2010 champ and 2012 co-runner-up loves himself this tournament. He converted an eagle at the par-5 fifth in a bounce-back from his only bogey of the day at 4. G-Mac added a birdie-3 at 14. He parred the rest of the course.

The opening round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic was suspended for darkness at 8:12 p.m. CT.

They played until sunset at TPC Southwind, but they had to. A weather delay of two-and-a-half hours this afternoon prevented the conclusion of the first round today. When play is scheduled to resume on Friday at 7:00 a.m., Graeme McDowell will be sizing up a 173-yard approach from the fairway at the par-4 17th hole. He's 1-under-par on the round with four birdies and three bogeys. A total of 60 golfers were stranded tonight; all have completed at least 10 holes. G-Mac made news to taking a pass on the BMW PGA Championship two weeks ago. He cited his responsibility to remain home with his pregnant wife even though she's not due until August. The SJC is his first of a planned three consecutive weeks on the road.
Jun 5 - 9:52 PM

Graeme McDowell alerted his followers on Twitter today that he's practicing for three consecutive weeks of competition.

This means that he'll return to action at next week's FedEx St. Jude Classic. The U.S. Open and Irish Open will ensue in that order. When he elected not to tee it up in last week's BMW PGA Championship by citing that he was going to spend time with his pregnant wife, it was a tenuous excuse at best given she's not due until August, but it's still good news today that he's set to play TPC Southwind where he shared ninth place in his debut in 2009.
May 30 - 2:50 PM

Graeme McDowell will not compete in next week's BMW PGA Championship due to his decision to stay home in Florida with his pregnant wife.

The couple's first child isn't due until August, so it's an interesting decision. He's missed the cut in each of his last three tries at Wentworth, but the BMW is the flagship event on the European Tour. "I very much appreciated Graeme taking the time to phone me personally to tell me he wouldn’t be at Wentworth," said European Tour chief executive George O’Grady. "But the fact that he wants to spend time with Kristen, who will not be able to travel for the next three months, is entirely understandable." For the time being, McDowell is scheduled to play again at the FedEx St. Jude Classic on June 5-8.
May 15 - 12:18 PM

Graeme McDowell opened his title defense of the RBC Heritage with an even-par 37-34=71.

If not for a late mini-flurry, this would have been out of control. He played his first 12 holes in birdie-free 3-over before wrangling three birdies and three pars on the final third of the round. His set included conventional conversions from 14'1" and 10'4" at the fourth and ninth holes, respectively. McDowell also rolled in a birdie from the fringe 13 yards away at 7. And we can't ignore the par save from 11'9" at the par-3 14th. He's only five strokes off the clubhouse lead. It's worth adding that he opened last year's title with the same score.
Apr 17 - 2:11 PM

Graeme McDowell solved the riddle of Harbour Town Golf Links in 2013 and is back to defend his RBC Heritage title this week.

G-Mac had a suspect record in his first three trips to Hilton Head, missing one of his three cuts and failing to crack the top 60 in the others. On paper, he is seemingly a great fit for this course. He ranks first on the PGA TOUR in strokes gained-putting and is inside the top 20 in driving accuracy and proximity. Other than the pressures and distractions that always come with defending, there is no reason to think he won't play well this time around.
Apr 14 - 9:22 PM

Graeme McDowell signed for a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational to end the tournament at 6-under 282.

The Ulsterman was hot for most of his afternoon, picking up five birdies to just one bogey over his first 16 holes. He hit a speed bump at the par-3 17th, rinsing his tee shot and settling for a double bogey. He then parred the 18th. All systems appear to be a go as he nears the season's first major.
Mar 23 - 5:22 PM

Graeme McDowell fired a 5-under-par 35-32=67 in the third round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational, improving to 4-under 212 for the tournament.

G-Mac navigated Bay Hill without a blemish in his third navigation of the course. After seven pars to begin his round, he poured in a 13'4" birdie on the par-4 eighth, and then closed out his day with four birdies on his final seven holes. With the exception of a chip-in birdie on the par-4 15th, his other three birdies on the back nine all fell from inside four feet. He's been hard to peg this week, following an opening 68 with a 77 in round two. That makes him a nightmare for Yahoo! gamers on Sunday.
Mar 22 - 1:11 PM

Graeme McDowell posted a 4-under-par 33-35=68 in his opening round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

The two-time runner-up at Bay Hill (2005, 2012) has been riding a groove for months thanks to righting whatever was wrong with his putting. He arrived this week ranked sixth on the PGA TOUR in strokes gained and signed his card with a one-round split just north of 4.010. McDowell holed birdies from 16'7", 19'3" and 12'6" at Nos. 5, 12 and 13, respectively, but it was an eagle from 74'9" at the par-5 sixth -- the same hole on which Bubba Watson penciled in an 11 before withdrawing earlier today -- that brought down the house. G-Mac sits six strokes off the clubhouse lead.
Mar 20 - 6:00 PM

Graeme McDowell stumbled to a 1-over-par 34-39=73 in the final round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship.

G-Mac was off and running with a bogey-free 2-under on his opening nine, but the back spelled trouble. He surrendered four bogeys, including his last two holes, to just one birdie on the inward nine at Trump National Doral. He ends the tournament at 2-over 290, but likely still in line for a top-10 finish.
Mar 9 - 6:23 PM

Graeme McDowell settled for a 1-over-par 35-38=73 in the third round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship.

McDowell had a relatively wild ride, carding three birdies and four bogeys on his day at Trump National Doral. Two of his three birdies fell from 19 feet or longer, but he just couldn't make anything on the back nine. He had an opportunity to post something under par and put himself in the thick of things for Sunday afternoon, but will now likely be fighting it out for a top-10 finish instead of a win.
Mar 8 - 5:30 PM

Graeme McDowell somehow managed a 1-under-par 35-36=71 in his second round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship.

You'd expect a U.S. Open champion to excel in U.S. Open-like conditions, but that he swallowed just one bogey (at the par-4 sixth hole) despite missing eight greens in regulation is prolific today. McDowell also found two birdies with conversions from 10'8" at the par-5 12th and 27'10" at the par-4 second. He posted even-par 144 and sits just one back of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
