Graeme McDowell is one of the most popular players both in America and in his native Europe. McDowell had a strong amateur career before turning pro back in 2002 but it did take him a few years to hit the heights. The man from Northern Ireland made a real breakthrough in 2008 when he picked up two wins on tour which catapulted him towards the top end of the rankings.
The defining moment in the career of McDowell came at the world famous Pebble Beach course in 2010 when the Portrush man won the US Open. The same year he won the Celtic Manor Wales Open and the Andalucia Masters to announce himself on the biggest stage of them all. In doing so, McDowell became the first European winner of the US Open for 40 years.
McDowell has also represented Europe in the Ryder Cup with distinction throughout his career.
