Masters Tournament

2020-11-15T11:15:20+00:00November 10th, 2020|

Graeme shot a 73 in his 2nd round and misses the cut by 1 shot at the Masters Tournament.  Graeme’s 2nd round was disrupted by a weather delay and when he resumed on the 9th he shot a bogey and looked doomed. He then went to +2 on 16 but a birdie on the 17th gave him a chance to make a great escape on the 18th. However, a second shot to the back of the green left him an uphill putt that was one foot short.

Day 1

Graeme first round charge at The Masters suffered a brutal end after the Rathmore man double-bogeyed his final hole of the day to sign for a level-par 72 at Augusta National.

The World No.66, making his first appearance at the tournament since 2016, had bounced back superbly from two early bogeys and was on track for a solid round on a rain-soaked first day of the final Major of the year until the cruel finish.

After waiting out a three-hour delay following torrential morning rain at Augusta, Graeme had bogeyed his opening hole, the 10th, and then dropped a further stroke at the par-five 13th.

But G-Mac turned it around with an unlikely birdie via a chip-in at the par-three 16th, and then, after the turn, back-to-back birdies followed at the 2nd and 3rd to get him back into red figures, with another birdie coming on the par-five 8th.

However, Augusta does not afford you rest and just when it seemed Graeme had a good round in the bag, it struck back. After chipping out sideways having been driven behind a tree on the 9th, the 41-year-old missed a six-footer for bogey, finishing his day where he started with a 72.

Former US Open champion Graeme resumed with a bogey on 9 and looked doomed when he went to +2 on 16 but a birdie on the 17th gave him a chance to make a great escape on the 18th.

However, a second shot to the back of the green left him an uphill putt that was one foot short.

Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open

2020-10-05T11:22:35+01:00October 1st, 2020|

Graeme misses the cut in North Berwick, Scotland at the The Renaissance Club for the Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open.

He took advantage of benign afternoon conditions to open with a two-under 69 but dropped below the cut line with a second round 74.

After breaking 70 for the first time in two months Graeme said “I certainly feel like I am turning the corner with my game a little bit”, “It has been getting very technical with my golf swing, and I am really trying to clear the head a little bit and play some golf and start trusting my technique a little bit. I am just trying to build that confidence back up again.”

Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship

2020-10-01T12:53:17+01:00September 23rd, 2020|

Graeme opened with a solid 70 on day 1 and made an encouraging start to his second round with birdies at the third and fourth. But after getting into bunker trouble at the fifth and running up a triple-bogey seven it was always going to be an uphill battle to get back in the mix. Graeme did get one shot back at the sixth but that proved to be his final birdie of the tournament as he struggled home in 37 to close on one under.

Graeme returns as defending champion this week to the Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship in the Dominican Republic. Watch Graeme talking at the press conference about his win last season and how he secured the title on Sunday.

U.S. Open

2020-09-19T14:13:54+01:00September 17th, 2020|

Graeme’s week ended early as his second round got off with a run of dropped shots which then left him with too much ground to make up on this tough golf course. He heads home with rounds of 76 and 80.

It wasn’t a great day for Graeme on the fist day at Winged Foot and he is now in a battle to make the cut after a six over par 76.

A double-bogey at the fourth was tempered as he made the turn just one over par but five unanswered drop-shots on the back nine left the Portrush man with it all to do.

“I missed the 12th fairway, the 14th, 15th, 16th and 17th fairways,” he reflected. “I made the mistakes that you just can’t make out here really, which is not getting the ball in play off the tee. I’ve got a lot of work to do tomorrow.”
