I will make a big splash at Pebble: G-Mac


Confident: Graeme McDowell

Graeme McDowell insists he isn't at Pebble Beach this week simply to reminisce ahead of the US Open in California.

The Rathmore man had the biggest victory of his career at Pebble back in 2010, winning the US Open, his first Major title.

But, having won this year on the PGA Tour, and having now secured his place at next month's Open at Royal Portrush, G-Mac believes he has a shot at repeating his success.

"Four or five months ago if you told me I'd be playing the first two rounds here with Dustin Johnson and Phil Mickelson, with the way my game was I would have been intimidated," said the 39-year-old.

"But with the victory, and some good finishes, the confidence is coming back and I feel very good about my game.

"I'm looking forward to the challenge of trying to dissect this golf course and get myself in position to contend this weekend."
