Graeme McDowell has been voted the European Tour’s Golfer of the Month
2010 U.S Open Champion Graeme McDowell won the February award with 51% of the vote after winning the Saudi International powered by Softbank Investment Advisers. Australian Min Woo Lee came in second with 33% of the vote, courtesy of his maiden European Tour title at the ISPS Handa Vic Open.
McDowell picked up February’s award after winning his 11th European Tour title at the Saudi International. McDowell’s 12 under par total was enough to edge out Dustin Johnson by two shots as well as a strong chasing pack headed by American Phil Mickelson. This victory was his first on the European Tour for 2,037 days.
Min Woo Lee came in second place after winning the ISPS Handa Vic Open in his native Australia. This was Lee’s first European Tour victory in his second season on tour, even more impressive after narrowly missing out on his full European Tour card at the end of 2019. Four rounds in the 60s across the links at 13th Beach gave him a two-shot victory over New Zealander Ryan Fox.
Patrick Reed rounded off the voting after winning his second World Golf Championships title at the WGC-Mexico Championship. Reed’s 18 under par total was enough to win by a single shot over Byrson DeChambeau and take him to the top of the Race to Dubai Rankings presented by Rolex.
