Graeme McDowell says he is determined to improve his record in the Majors next year after having a season to forget in the Grand Slams in 2011.
The Northern Irishman finished in 14th place in his defence of his US Open title at Congressional and is 40/1 with bet365 to triumph at the British Open next year. However, he didn’t make it past the halfway stage at the US Masters, the Open and US PGA Championship and is desperate to make amends next year.
Much was expected of the 32-year-old in 2011’s biggest tournaments but he struggled to deal with the added pressure.
McDowell told the Irish Golf Desk: “I think the one stat I didn’t like the look of this year was MC-14-MC-MC and that’s my performances in the Majors. That’s a stat that disappointed me more than any of the stats this year.
“I feel I have the game that is good enough to compete at Majors so that is something I am going to address in 2012. I am going to try and prepare well for the Majors and look for that bit of consistency.”
