Block hinders GMac progress

Powered by National Club Golfer


Graeme McDowell hasn’t won since the French Open last year and one hole, the 1st at El Camaleon in Mexico, looks like it will play a big part in that run continuing.

McDowell hit his tee shot out of bounds at the par 4 in practice on Tuesday and he repeated that in the first and third rounds to run up double-bogeys.

On the second day he just made a bogey. On Sunday he made his first par.

“I’ve played that first hole like a complete idiot this week,” McDowell said.

“That driver swing that’s going to the right, that’s been killing me the last few weeks. It really stopped me from competing in Turkey a couple weeks back.

It’s just something I’m working on, something I need to eliminate from my game.”
