Learning from the pros

We can all learn a thing or two by watching the pros in person. Just a shame that spectator-free events make such opportunities unlikely this year

 

‘Changeableness’ is the word Graeme McDowell believes he will not have to deal with heading into the 2017 season.

2017 will be G Mac’s 15th year in the pro ranks 37-year old McDowell for the 14-times winning Northern Irishman.

However McDowell is recharging the batteries over the Christmas break not having toasted success in 2016.  Of course, he captured the OHL Mayakoba Classic during the PGA Tour’s 2015/16 season but that was some 13 months ago in November 2015.

“I’ve been disappointed that I haven’t kicked on better this year, to be honest,” he said, as reported by the Irish Independent.

“Finishing with the type of momentum I did last year, I really felt like I was going to kick on a little bit more. “Taking the positives out of this year, when I have played well, I’ve maintained my weekends and continued to play well and posted several good rounds.

“When I look at the year, I kind of think perhaps [missing] the Ryder Cup and my second baby being born [in August], and a couple of other things off the golf course, may have sort of affected me a little bit more than I expected. “Now my life starts to stabilise. I guess the changeableness off the golf course starts to kind of settle down, and I can really start to focus on what’s the next chapter of my career.

“I feel like I’m as motivated and as healthy and as mentally fresh as I have been in a long time, and it’s just a case of being really patient with it now.”
