Graeme McDowell To Play In Mexico

Many golfers often gain inspiration from fellow golfers and that is the case with Graeme McDowell recently.

He is now backing on the game and the word is that he is interested in winning trophies in the games he participates. Being Irishman, he is now drawing inspiration from the Rod Pampling’s recent win at Las Vegas. Pampling is considered to be a veteran player from Australia. McDowell is a younger player, at 37 and he looks forward to defend his title at the upcoming event of the PGA Tour that is scheduled for Mexico. He would then head out to Melbourne where he would be part of the Ireland team for the World Cup of Golf. This will be held at Kingston Heath.

McDowell won the US Open last in 2010. He was recently witness to the Las Vegas game where Pampling, at the age of 47, was able to score over Lucas Glover, who is about ten years his junior and took away the victory cup. Indeed, McDowell as well as others advancing towards their forties, feel threatened that the game has now become exclusively for the twenty something players.

Graeme McDowell At PGA

In the PGA Championship that Graeme McDowell was a part of recently, about three days back, there were hecklers calling out Baba Booey for his shots that irritated him considerably.

If you are at Baltusrol you will hear this news all weekend. Several fans of the championship event, especially those who are native to New Jersey, have been calling out random things to their favorite golfers. The comments come before, after or during a shot even. It was found to be a nuisance by many golfers. It becomes difficult to shut up fans that are rowdy as they can be vociferous and as it is a spectator sport, it is expected as well.

However, when a fan yelled Baba Booey after Graeme McDowell hit a tee shot into the par-3 forth it definitely seemed to be targeted to mess up the timing of the golfer. The comment was yelling when the second round was being played. The pranks that seem to be inspired by Howard Stern were probably targeted in messing up the timing for the golfer. McDowell was able to make the shot right, but he wanted to stop the obnoxious behavior of the fan. He reacted to the comment, putting down the fan for the disturbing comment and behavior he exhibited in the background. Continue reading Graeme McDowell At PGA

Jason Day, the World No 2, has endured a back injury in his first round 3&2 victory over Graeme McDowell at World Golf Championships Match Play, probably putting his Masters tilt in doubt.

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. Continue reading Graeme McDowell Leading With At Hilton Head Along With Matt Every

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.
