THE YEAR 2015 HAS BEEN DISAPPOINTING for U.S. Open champion Graeme McDowell (aka G-Mac), but the Northern Irishman has kept grinding and it finally paid off today in Mexico.
The Associated Press reported:
PLAYA DEL CARMEN, Mexico (AP) -- Graeme McDowell ended one of his worst calendar years with one of his best shots. He hit an approach to 3 feet for a birdie on the 18th hole Monday to win the OHL Classic at Mayakoba in a three-man playoff.
McDowell, who moved to 7th in the FedExCup standings with his win, closed with a 66 to finish at 18-under 266 which he thought would be only good enough for second place.
