Graeme McDowell recorded a three-stroke victory at the World Challenge.
McDowell loves himself some Sherwood Country Club. His last victory anywhere occurred on the track in 2010. He then opted to compete in the Nedbank Golf Challenge rather than defend his World Challenge title in 2011. (He also placed solo second in his debut at Sherwood in 2009.) G-Mac posted 17-under-par 69-66-68-68=271 this week. Keegan Bradley settled for runner-up honors and he was the only other golfer in the field to sign for four sub-70 rounds (14-under 69-69-67-69=274). Bo Van Pelt took third at 10-under 278. McDowell, who is recently engaged, is now expected to take a couple of months off. Look for him to return to competition in February.
