Valspar Championship

Day 2 / Result
Graeme missed the cut after adding a 73 to yesterday’s 74.

Round 1 – 74, Round 2 – 72. Total +5

Day 1
Graeme is 10 shots off the lead after the opening round at the Valspar Championship.

The Northern Irishman carded a three-over 74 which has him well outside the top 100 after day one.
McDowell initially made a strong start, with a birdie on the first followed by another on the fifth.

But consecutive bogeys on seven and eight dropped him back to level par. However, he finished off his front nine with a birdie on the ninth.

Bogeys on 11, 13 and 16 – mitigated by a birdie on 14 – saw McDowell slip back before a double bogey on the penultimate hole saw him slip further back to three over.

Zurich Classic of New Orleans

Graeme had a moment to remember with his first hole-in-one on the PGA Tour during the second round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

“I’d have been very happy with anything dry there, but I’ll take a one!”

Graeme’s ace came in style at the difficult 17th hole at TPC Louisiana as he played in the foursomes alongside his partner Matt Wallace.

The 2010 US Open champion hit a low draw into the breeze off the tee on the 216-yard par-three which has water down the left.

His ball landed towards the front of the green and curled in perfectly from there at a decent pace, to the delight of the watching crowd.

Back on the tee, Graeme had bent down to pick up his tee and did not see the ball drop into the hole, unlike Wallace who immediately grabbed hold of the Northern Irishman and started celebrating.

Result

Graeme and partner Matt Wallace finished in a tie for 23rd place.

Round 1 – 66, Round 2 – 70, Round 3 – 68, Round 4 – 72. Total -12

RBC Heritage

Graeme missed the cut at the 2021 RBC Heritage, Harbour Town Golf Links, Hilton Head, SC.

Round 2
Graeme’s 2nd round started well with birdies on 2 and 5 but a double bogey on 8 set him back and ended his challenge. From there his round was even with birdies on 9 and 12 cancelled out by bogies on 14 and 15.

Round 1
Graeme will have to produce a strong round to reach the weekend at the RBC Heritage in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.

Graeme is in the bottom half of the leaderboard at Harbour Town after a two-over 73 in his opening round, which is three shots off the projected cut mark.

Graeme struggled for consistency at Harbour Town, recording three birdies on his front nine but also dropping two shots before the turn.

His back nine was little better, the former US Open champion finding two more bogeys and also a double-bogey, but he did fire in a sensational approach to 11 inches on the 18th for birdie to give him some momentum to take into today’s second round..

SCORE
Position: CUT
Round 1 – 73, Round 2 – 71

Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship

Graeme finished two shots behind winner Joel Dahmen at the Corales Puntacana Resort and Club Championship PGA Tour event in the Dominican Republic.

Graeme, who won the event in 2019, shot a final round of 69 on Sunday which moved him to 10-under-par.

Five birdies brought Graeme into contention however two bogeys on the final two holes ended his challenge.

The 2010 US Open champion ended the windswept seaside course tied for fourth with his best finish in two years.

“You know, it’s great to feel disappointed with a top-10 because it’s been a really, really rough three months this year,” Graeme said.

“It’s actually been a rough stretch since last June, since we came back after the break. I really haven’t played the type of golf I know I’m capable of.

“It’s been a tough run and this is really a light at the end of the tunnel this week, so it’s really important that I sort of frame this up the right way. This is massive progress.

“You could look at those two bogeys and if you focus on those, all you see is disappointment, but I have to focus on the bigger picture, which is I’m back playing the kind of golf I know I can play.

“I’m going to San Antonio next week with a chance to compete in the golf tournament, which is what I believe I’m capable of.”
