LIV debut

McDowell joined golf’s elite in 2010, when he became only the second European to win the U.S. Open in 85 years. He followed up that victory at Pebble Beach a few months later by sinking the putt that clinched the Ryder Cup for Europe. Before joining LIV Golf, the Northern Irishman won 16 pro events worldwide, with two top-10 finishes in other majors, and has spent nearly 400 weeks in the world’s top 50. McDowell is a member of Smash GC, winners of LIV Golf Las Vegas in 2024.
