Graeme McDowell is one of the world’s top golfers, earlier this year aiding in the European win of the Ryder Cup. But last Sunday was McDowell’s turn to hog the spotlight when he won the World Challenge in California.
McDowell beat off 18 contenders including the defending champion Tiger Woods and Keegan Bradley, who secured second place. McDowell and Bradley battled it out, and although at one point it became too close to call, McDowell ended the 2012 World Challenge with a laser accurate sure birdie putt.
This is McDowell’s second win in the World Challenge, following a victory in 2010.
Although this is an out of season event, the World Challenge is an important step in preparations for the upcoming season. McDowell will use this momentum to start 2013 on a positive note.
With this degree of confidence supporting McDowell’s skill and determination, we’re looking forward to seeing what he can accomplish in 2013.
