Danny Lee, of New Zealand, fell to Charl Schwartzel who won 1-up thanks to a par to Danny’s bogey on the par-three seventeenth hole.

Jason was 3-up after fourteen holes when he recoiled in pain hitting a tee shot on fifteenth hole, filtering something in his lower back and enduring nerve pain. He was able to call off halves in the next 2 holes to win the game but was in severe discomfort, clambering to walk. This is really very hard to play with tough pain in both sides of your lower back, said Day.

Graeme McDowell Leading With At Hilton Head Along With Matt Every

Professional golfer from Northern Ireland, Graeme McDowell is currently sharing the lead with Matt Every after the first round of RBC Heritage at Hilton Head. McDowell plays for PGA as well as in European tour. He achieved the biggest milestone of his career in 2010 by winning the US open.

It was quite a difficult condition today in South Carolina for players because of strong winds and cold weather. It was difficult to score birdies but they took advantage of slightly better conditions during the afternoon wave. Every managed six before a bogey on the 18th and McDowell matched him only in reverse after making a bogey on the 1st. Graeme is yet to win any title in his PGA tour. On other hand Every just won another title at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and is looking for his second victory this year.

Before entering the professional golf in 2002 G-Mac had a successful amateur career in Ireland and United States. In June 2010, McDowell became the first Northern Irishman to win the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach.

Bae Sang-moon from South Korea is in the third position at 4 under ahead of a five-way tie for the fourth position between Kevin Kisner, Morgan Hoffman, Scott Langley, Cameron Smith and Matt Kuchar. Matt kuchar is the defending champion and is 3 under.

Graeme McDowell will return to France for the French Open

Northern Irish golfer Graeme McDowell has confirmed that he will return to France for the 99th edition of the famous Alstom Open de France, or simply, the French Open which is scheduled to take place between the 2nd and 5th of July as he attempts to become only the second golfer in the history of the illustrious event to win the title three times on the bounce.

Having successfully managed to defend his title last year, the Northern Irishman will be aiming to emulate the only person who has managed a hat-trick in the event – Frenchman Marcel Dallemagne who won his three titles at Saint-Germain in 1936, Saint-Cloud in 1937 and Fourqueux in 1938.

Speaking to the media, McDowell said that obviously he would be returning to defend his title, adding that it would be a beautiful thing to win the title three times in a row. Graeme McDowell who is currently ranked at number 22 in the Official World Golf Rankings and is a winner of the US Open, won his tenth title on the Tour when he managed to take advantage of a slip from the leader Versailles last year on the final day.
