Great news for Graeme McDowell fans- their favorite golfer has not only made Ireland proud but has also impressed the golf enthusiasts all over the world with his remarkable win at French Open 2014 Golf Tournament.
The esteemed tournament was held at Guyancourt based Paris National Course where a dramatic last round lifted up the trophy for the dapper Irish player. Graeme fired a 67 final round to conclude on 5 under par & overnight leader Kevin required a par to force playoff at last amidst a windy wet ambience.
“I am very surprised”, was McDowell’s immediate reaction after the win.
When I was having wine last night I was pondering over my disappointing back-nine golf on Saturday”, he continued. “I never could thing that I would have this opportunity to get to playoff & accomplish the trophy. I feel really fortunate. Stadler is an awesome player. I quite literally offered him the putt on last green and I did not expect Kevin to miss out on that.
The American golf star closely failed with birdie putt right from twenty-five ft that would have otherwise written the victory for him only. It marked the tenth Euro Tour victory for McDowell.
“I is not exactly the way one would prefer to win”, the winner remarked. “I was all set to get for playoff but I would tale it & run. I actually needed this win. It’s really special for me & quite timely. There is a pretty busy summer season ahead.”
McDowell made 5 birdies & one sole bogey on last hole – his latest win has sealed him a position in 2014 European Ryder squad.
Stadler shared the 2nd place with Thongchai Jaidee from Thailand and Robert Karlsson came 4th in the tournament.
