Graeme finished in 12th place at Bedminster.

Graeme opened his account on Day with a score of 1 over. It was a steady round with a birdie on 9(his 16th) and dropped shots on the 3rd(his 9th) and the 12th(his 18th). On Day 2 Graeme got off to a great start, 3 under after 8 holes. He then made a double bogey on the 13th(his 9th) but cancelled that out with birdies on the 15th/16(his 11th/12th). He then had another double bogey on the 17th(his 13th) but birdied the next hole to be 2 up with 4 to play. Dropped shots on the 2nd and 4th(his 13th/18th) put Graeme on even for the day.

Graeme saved his best round for Sunday shooting 1 under for the day. He started with a run of bogeys on the 18th(his 3rd) and 1st hole (his 4th). After a birdie followed by bogey on the 4th/5th (his 7th/8th), Graeme showed his steel with 3 birdies and no dropped shots coming home.  It was particularly satisfying rolling in a birdie on 15th(his 18th) to finish the week on even.

Graeme has played some solid golf the last few events with lots of positives in his game. Bedminster is his highest finish for a while as Graeme keeps working hard and enjoying his game.

Trump National Golf Club Bedminster has featured several times in the top 100 American courses since it opened in 2004.

Its beautifully manicured 7,500 yards offer a superb variety of holes. Some cross open fields, others are tree-lined, and several have lakes waiting to punish the wayward shot. Look out for the big island-type green at the sixth hole.
