Graeme McDowell turned professional in 2002 and won his first European Tour title at the Scandinavian Masters that same year.
Having picked up another title at the Italian Open in 2004, he won twice in 2008 and earned a spot in the defeated Europe team at the 2008 Ryder Cup.
In 2010 McDowell triumphed at the Celtic Manor Wales Open, and two weeks later became the first European winner of the US Open since 1970 - triumphing at Pebble Beach.
McDowell was an automatic qualifier for the 2010 Ryder Cup.
