Graeme McDowell wins French Open
Graeme McDowell is pretty much the definition of a streaky player right now.
Everybody better look out at the British Open in two weeks, if Graeme McDowell makes the cut that is.
The Northern Irishman took down Richard Sterne in the French Open by four strokes for his third win worldwide in his last eight starts. The caveat: He's missed the cut at the other five.
Here's a look:
Masters (US) -- Cut
RBC Heritage (US) -- Won
Players Championship (US) -- Cut
Volvo World Match Play (Europe) -- Won
BMW PGA Championship (Europe) -- Cut
US Open (US) -- Cut
Irish Open (Europe) -- Cut
French Open (Europe) -- Won
The course they were playing in France -- Le Golf National -- is the site of the 2018 Ryder Cup so maybe McDowell was just getting in a little prep work for the event (though he'll be nearly 40 for that competition).
McDowell addressed the whole win/missed cut thing with the BBC after his win, saying, "It's been a funny year because my game hasn't felt far away most weeks, but I've missed a lot of cuts and missing cuts hurts. That has certainly motivated me a lot these last few weeks."
Up next for McDowell is the British Open, where he finished T5 last year but was, wait for it, cut the year before that.
Last year's T5 finish was the best ever for McDowell at a British Open. He's currently 28-1 to win the tournament.
