Graeme got off to a flying start at Greenbrier with a score of 5 under after 11 holes, his short game play and putting was on fire. It was a frustrating end to the day with dropped shots on 16 and 17 which put G-Mac on -2.
Again on Day 2 Graeme was 2 under after 5 holes. He fell back in the middle order to be on even after 14 holes. He then finished strongly with birdies on the 5th (his 16th for the day) and also the 7 (his 18th) which matched his opening round of -2 (68)
His final round was similar to Day 1, off to a brilliant shooting 5 birdies after 9 holes and going well. He dropped a shot on the 3rd (his 13th for the day) but bounced back with a birdie on the next hole. He had a double bogey on the 6th (his 16th for the day) but steadied the ship with pars on the final 2 holes to be back in the clubhouse with a -3 for the day, -7 for the week
Result, 29 with rounds of -2 (68), -2(68), -3(67) for a score of -7

LIV Golf writes new chapter at an historic venue
Golf’s newest innovation meets one of its most storied and traditional courses as the LIV Golf League moves on to The Greenbrier.
You name them, they played here. Over more than 100 years, golf’s greatest have visited this wonderful corner of West Virginia.
Now present-day stars including Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson, Cameron Smith and Bubba Watson will be competing to add their names to the roll of honor at The Old White, which opened for play in 1914.
The Greenbrier has been restored since it took a battering from local floods in 2016 – and every care has been taken to retain the character of this historic course.
With its tree-lined fairways and small, well-protected greens, this is a track to test the game and the character of every player – which makes it an ideal venue for the LIV Golf League.
