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.

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.

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.

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.
Mar 7 - 5:39 PM

Graeme McDowell did it yet again, this time in 21 holes over Hunter Mahan in the Snead Bracket in today's third round of the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship.

G-Mac has led for all of three holes all week, but they're only that have mattered. After final-hole heroics on Wednesday and Thursday, and sitting 2 down through 16 holes today, he closed regulation par-birdie to force sudden death. A long-range par conversion at the 20th hole (the par-4 second) set the tone for a mid-range attempt that disappeared for birdie at the par-4 third and sent Mahan packing. Rookie participant Victor Dubuisson better be ready for anything in Saturday's quarterfinal against his fellow European.
Feb 21 - 6:27 PM

Graeme McDowell escaped with a 1-up victory over Hideki Matsuyama in the Snead Bracket in today's second round of the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship.

Once again, G-Mac's back was against the wall late. Matsuyama opened birdie-eagle, the latter par breaker courtesy of a hole-out from the greenside rough. They eventually arrived at the 17th with Matsuyama 1 up but McDowell mustered a birdie-3 to square. He then closed it with a par-4 at 18 to advance and face Hunter Mahan in the third round.
Feb 20 - 6:26 PM

Graeme McDowell eliminated Gary Woodland in 19 holes in the Snead Bracket in the first round of the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship.

Wow, oh wow. Aside from a lone bogey-5 at the ninth hole (that G-Mac birdied anyway), Woodland was in complete control. He lassoed seven birdies, the last of which to go 3 up after 15. Now with no room to spare, McDowell won the par-3 16th with a par. He then birdied 17 for another win. Woodland conceded a birdie-3 to his buddy at 18 to square the match. Back at the par-4 first hole, McDowell dropped in a birdie to complete the unlikely comeback. Look for him alongside Hideki Matsuyama in Thursday's second round.
Feb 19 - 5:15 PM

Graeme McDowell lit up Pebble Beach Golf Links for a 5-under-par 34-33=67 in the final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, finishing the tournament at 6-under 281.

This was G-Mac's first return to Pebble since his 2010 U.S. Open win, and it seems that he recaptured the magic for his final stroll. He began his day on the 10th hole, throwing up four birdies to two bogeys on his first nine. He was without a blemish on the front, picking up birdies on both the par 5s and then the par-4 third hole. Seemingly in good form, expect more high finishes in the coming weeks.
Feb 9 - 5:57 PM

Graeme McDowell turned in a 1-under-par 36-35=71 at Spyglass Hill for his opening round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

A weather delay of two hour and 51 minutes will prevent the field of 156 golfers from completing the first round today, but McDowell went out in the first group off the first tee, so he's still on schedule. Lift, clean and place was in effect on all three tracks. It came in handy for the Ulsterman, who is making his 2014 debut this week. He split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation en route to three birdies and two bogeys. With the hardest course out of the way, his focus shifts to the easiest in Monterey Peninsula Country Club's Shore Course for the second round.
Feb 6 - 6:47 PM

Graeme McDowell returns to Pebble Beach Golf Links for the first time since his 2010 U.S. Open win and will compete in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

As a fun touch, McDowell will have his father playing alongside him as his amateur competitor. While the week should be packed with nostalgia, there is work to be done. This is only his second start of the 2013-14 season, and his first of 2014. With the exception of the U.S. Open, he's played here three other times. He finished eighth in 2005, surrounded by missed cuts in 2003 and 2006.
Feb 4 - 9:34 PM

Graeme McDowell is not listed in the published field of next week's Hyundai Tournament of Champions.

G-Mac qualified for the winners-only competition once before and placed third at Kapalua in 2011. This time, however, he's reprising last year's lengthy break that spans the new year. He took sixth place at the World Challenge on Dec. 8, but you won't see him again until the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am on Feb. 6-9. While he hasn't competed in that PGA TOUR stop since 2006, he won the U.S. Open on the beefed-up host course in 2010. Believe it or not, McDowell has never advance to the TOUR Championship, but he'll appear in all of the big events in 2014 via his major title and world ranking.
