Graeme McDowell is one of the more underrated characters on the PGA Tour. He's the kind of golfer who would fit into any era of golf so it's nice to see that magnanimous, larger-than-life personality show itself sometimes.

It was on full display this past weekend after the Heritage. McDowell picked up the second win of his PGA Tour career (kind of hard to believe) and immediately grabbed a beverage.

Here's Brian Wacker of with what McDowell had to say ("beer in hand" according to the article):

"I’ve been working my ass off since September of 2011 to get over the U.S. Open hangover and everything that goes with it. This has been a work in progress for two years."

That's not all, though; McDowell wanted others to join in the party.

According to Wacker, after McDowell's win he placed a phone call to the restaurant he opened earlier this year (Nona Blue) and made an announcement:

"The bar is open.”

Wish I lived in Orlando (and was friends with McDowell).
