Final round of 2 under today at the Saudi International which included 5 birdies and a bump up the leaderboard. Always get up and keep moving forward…..It may be slow but it’s still progress…

Graeme goes into the weekend after 2 level par rounds of 70. With an eye on the cut line GMac birdied 18 at the end of his second round keeping his tournament alive.

Graeme is looking to kickstart his season this week with the defence of his Saudi International title.

“When you come to a place with good memories, it’s easy to visualise yourself being successful around a place when you’ve played well,”

“I’ve hit a lot of balls the last couple months. I’m moving back in the right direction.”

“I think one of the big things missing for me right now is that little bit of confidence and belief in my ability to make enough birdies to score well to compete.

“So I’d love to try and find something this week. It’s been a disappointing Middle East so far. Missed by a few last week in Dubai. Would dearly love to play well this week and get my season kicked off.”

“I’m excited. I think I can have a good year. I feel motivated and I feel healthy and like I say, that Ryder Cup carrot is out there dangling.”

“This time last year when I was sitting here, it felt a long, distant kind of dream. I feel like when I won here last year, it became very achievable for me.”
